  • Reference to most original works with essential results, that resulted in the development of nanotechnology
  • Coherent group of well-known authors in the field of nanotechnology
  • Book spans topics applicable for both the didactic and research

This book illustrates the current status of modern nanotechnology. The book is divided into 3 main sections, introduction and conclusion. The introduction describes general questions of the problem and main lines of the research activities.

In the first section methods of the nanostructures construction are described.

The second section is dedicated to the Structure-property relationship. Special attention is paid to the description of the most powerful experimental methods and tools used in nanotechnology, such as probe microscopies, spectroscopied, and scattering methods, including the utilization of synchrotron radiation facilities.

The third section describes the applications of nanotechnology in electronics, biotechnology and diagnostics. Conclusion part presents a summary of the status of works in this area and gives some perspectives of the further development.

Of interest for PhD students, Post Doc fellows and researchers. It is also suitable for libraries, high tech companies and high schools specializing in technical and natural sciences
