Nanotechnology has become one of the most important and exciting fields in the forefront of Engineering, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. It shows great promise for providing us in the near future with many breakthroughs that will change the direction of technological advances in a wide range of applications. The purpose of this book is to provide an introduction to the subject of nanotechnology on a level that allows researchers in different areas to obtain an appreciation of developments in nanotechnology outside their own fields of expertise and that will allow technical administrators and managers to obtain an overview of the subject.
