The 25-volume set contains the largest number of state-of-the-art review chapters ever published in the world in the field of nanotechnology. Each chapter is fully cross-referenced, introducing some of the most important nanotechnologies under development today. The first edition of the Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, 10-Volume Set, (Edited by H. S. Nalwa, Foreword by Professor Richard E. Smalley, Nobel Prize Laureate, Endorsed by Professor Jean-Marie Lehn, Nobel Prize Laureate) that appeared in 2004 received the “Best Reference Work Award” of the American Society for Engineering Education (USA) and “Outstanding Academic Title” by the CHOICE magazine from the American Library Association (USA). With the addition of new 15 volumes (vols. 11-25) in 2011, the entire 25-volume set contains the largest number of articles ever published in the field of nanotechnology in the world. There is no match for this landmark reference since this encyclopedia covers all research topics reported over the past two decades. It is the most useful reference for all academic and research libraries.
Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology® is the World’s first encyclopedia ever published in the field of nanotechnology. The 10-volume Encyclopedia is an unprecedented single reference source that provides ideal introduction and overview of most recent advances and emerging new aspects of nanotechnology spanning from science to engineering to medicine. Although there are many books/handbook and journals focused on nanotechnology, no encyclopedic reference work has been published covering all aspects of nanoscale science and technology dealing with materials synthesis, processing, fabrication, probes, spectroscopy, physical properties, electronics, optics, mechanics, biotechnology, devices, etc. The Encyclopedia fills this gap to provide basic information on all fundamental and applied aspects of nanotechnology by drawing on two decades of pioneering research. It is the only scientific work of its kind since the beginning of the field of nanotechnology bringing together core knowledge and the very latest advances. It is written for all levels audience that allows non-scientists to understand the nanotechnology while providing up-to-date latest information to active scientists to experts in the field. This outstanding encyclopedia is an indispensable source for research professionals, technology investors and developers seeking the most up-to-date information on the nanotechnology among a wide range of disciplines from science to engineering to medicine.
