- Publisher's Summary
- This book contains 35 review articles on nanoscience and nanotechnology that were first published in "Nature Nanotechnology", "Nature Materials" and a number of other "Nature" journals. The articles are all written by leading authorities in their field and cover a wide range of areas in nanoscience and technology, from basic research (such as single-molecule devices and new materials) through to applications (in, for example, nanomedicine and data storage).
