In Understanding Nanomaterials 2nd Edition (PDF) eBook, the authors provide the perfect training tool for the workforce in nanotech development by presenting the fundamental principles that govern the characterization, fabrication, and application of nanomaterials. This 2nd edition represents a complete overhaul, giving a much more complete, self-contained introduction. As before, the textbook avoids excessive mathematical detail and is written in an easy to follow, appealing style suitable for anyone, regardless of background in chemistry, physics, biology or engineering. The organization has been revised to include fundamental physical chemistry and physics pertaining to relevant mechanical, electrical, and optical material properties.
- Adds many more worked examples and end-of-chapter problems.
- Incorporates expanded and new content on hard materials, semiconductors for nanoelectronics, and nonlinear optical materials.
- Provides more complete coverage of fundamentals including relevant aspects of kinetics, quantum mechanics, thermodynamics, and solid-state physics, and also significantly expands treatment of solid-phase systems.

“a well-organized dbook that provides an excellent introduction in nanoscience and the design of nanomaterials. The ebook is accessible to newcomers to the field, including the undergraduate student, and provides a broad and sound basis upon which to pursue further in-depth study.” ― Professor. Dr. Andre ten Elshof, University of Twente
“an indispensable resource in the fields of biophysics, chemistry, nanoscience and beyond. The depth and breadth of knowledge presented herein is unmatched. A clearly written and thorough understanding of the basics, as well as state-of-the-art, in biophysics is provided. But this PDF ebook also includes several well organized chapters on synthesis and characterization methods for nanomaterials used in biophysical studies. It truly embodies the multidisciplinary nature of modern research.” ― Dr. Marcus D. Lay, PhD, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art
