Introduction to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
by M. Kuno
Number of pages: 246
This set of lecture notes about nanoscience and nanotechnology should explain to the student some of the underlying concepts behind "nano". The motivation for this was to describe to the student the physics behind each concept or assumption commonly encountered in the nano literature rather than just providing a qualitative overview of developments in the field.

The adhesive abilities of insects and spiderss have inspired researchers for a long time. The book aims to better understand some of the most challenging topics in nature, such as adhesive, anti-adhesive or strong mechanisms in plants or animals.
by Eric Drexler - Anchor
This book heralds the new age of nanotechnology, which will give us thorough and inexpensive control of the structure of matter. Drexler examines the enormous implications of these developments for medicine, the economy, and the environment.
This book on nanoscience and nanotechnology gathers information about the various tools, methods and systems to provide students, researchers and everyone else a handbook and overview guide to this vast interdisciplinary and expanding field.
