Introductory Nano Technology: Concept, Development and Impacts on Man and Society

Laura Costlow (Author) Robert Preidt (Author) April Peter (Author)
Synopsis The book Introductory Nanotechnology is an intelligent selection of essays that not only underline the importance of nanotechnology but explain the nut and bolts of it for the Students. Nanotechnology-the precise engineering of tiny but powerful machines -is advancing quickly, leaping from the pages of science fiction into world-class research laboratories, and coming soon to a desktop near you. Like electricity or computers before it, nanotechnology will bring greatly improved efficiency and productivity in many areas of human endeavor. In its mature form, known  as Molecular nanotechnology (MNT) or Molecular Manufacturing (MM, It will have significant impact on almost all industries and all parts of society. Personal nanofactories (PNs) may offer better built, longer lasting, cleaner, safer, and smarter products for the home, for communication, for medicine, for transportation, for agriculture, and for industry in general. However, as a general-purpose technology, MM will be dual-use, meaning that in addition to its civilian applications, it will have military uses as well –making far more powerful weapons and tools of durveillance. Thus, it represents not only wonderful benefits for humanity, but also grave risks. The book is a good reading and inform one and all about this revolutionary phenomenon. It will inspire students to learn more. We hope students will want to get involved in the vital work of raising awareness and finding effective solutions to the challenges presented to the world by advanced nanotechnology.
