Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
The Awards Committee of the Engineering Libraries Division of the American Society for Engineering Education is proud to announce the following: "The 2005 Best Reference Work Award goes to Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, edited by Hari Singh Nalwa and published by American Scientific Publishers, 2004. This encyclopedia brings together international research in these groundbreaking areas…The Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology proves to be a definitive tool that links both the novice and expert researcher to understandable articles and matches the caliber of past recipients of ELD's Best Reference Work Award.”
John C. Teleha, Chair, Engineering Libraries Division Awards Committee,
American Society for Engineering Education, USA

Reference Librarian, F. D. Bluford Library, North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University, USA
"Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (10-Volume set) edited by Hari Singh Nalwa has been selected as the CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title.”
Irving E. Rockwood, Editor & Publisher, CHOICE, American Library Association, USA

"American Scientific Publisher’s Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology is an excellent scientific encyclopedia. It provides an excellent breath and depth of information that is particularly suited to benefit a broad spectrum of non-professional and professional is an excellent set that should provide sound information for several years to come."

Alice Trussell, Director, Kansas State University Fiedler Engineering Library, USA

E-STREAMS Vol. 7, September 2004
"The Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology is the world's first single most comprehensive reference source ever published in the field of nanotechnology. This encyclopedia is an indispensable source for any research professional as well as for technology investors and developers seeking up-to-date information on the nanotechnology among a wide range of disciplines from science to engineering to medicine. It should inspire future generations of academic and industrial researchers who endeavor to develop new nanoscale materials and devices."
Professor Richard E. Smalley, Nobel Prize Laureate in Chemistry
"In view of the great interest that Nanoscience and Nanotechnology are attracting, the rapid development they are experiencing and of the profound impact they will have, an Encyclopedia covering this field is most welcome. It should become a source of inspiration as well as of information for a very wide range of scientists."
Professor Jean-Marie Lehn, Nobel Prize Laureate in Chemistry
"The Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology edited by Dr. Hari Singh Nalwa will be of great value to students, teachers and research workers interested in the area. I recommend this volume to individuals, research groups and libraries."
Professor C. N. R. Rao, Bangalore, India

Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology® is the World's first encyclopedia ever published in the field of nanotechnology. The 10-volume Encyclopedia is an unprecedented single reference source that provides ideal introduction and overview of most recent advances and emerging new aspects of nanotechnology spanning from science to engineering to medicine. Although there are many books/handbook and journals focused on nanotechnology, no encyclopedic reference work has been published covering all aspects of nanoscale science and technology dealing with materials synthesis, processing, fabrication, probes, spectroscopy, physical properties, electronics, optics, mechanics, biotechnology, devices, etc. The Encyclopedia fills this gap to provide basic information on all fundamental and applied aspects of nanotechnology by drawing on two decades of pioneering research. It is the only scientific work of its kind since the beginning of the field of nanotechnology bringing together core knowledge and the very latest advances. It is written for all levels audience that allows non-scientists to understand the nanotechnology while providing up-to-date latest information to active scientists to experts in the field. This outstanding encyclopedia is an indispensable source for research professionals, technology investors and developers seeking the most up-to-date information on the nanotechnology among a wide range of disciplines from science to engineering to medicine.
