ABSTRACT

With its original publication, the Dekker Encyclopedia Nanoscience and Nanotechnology immediately became the reference against which all other nano references are measured. Continuing to cover the field as no other resource, the seven-volume third edition crosses disciplines to examine fundamental nano principles, theories, and methodologies, as well is the latest information on nano-relevant properties. It also covers advances in nanoscale engineering, newly developed simulation tools, and emerging computational methods.
