Research and Markets (www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c83808) has announced the addition of "The Physics and Chemistry of Nanosolids" to their offering.

New Updated Edition of 'The Physics and Chemistry of Nanosolids' Now Available

DUBLIN, Ireland | Posted on February 25th, 2008

Introduction to Nanotechnology by Charles P. Poole, Jr., and Frank J. Owens was published by Wiley in 2003. The object of this book was to provide an introductory survey of nanotechnology for researchers and technical managers who needed to learn about the developments in nanotechnology. The Physics and Chemistry of Nanosolids is a revision of the 2003 book, making it more appropriate as a senior undergraduate or graduate level text book. Material from the earlier book will be updated, and some sections will be rewritten to be more pedagogical in nature. The objectives of the book are to describe how properties depend on size in the nanometer regime, and explain why these changes occur using relatively simple models of the physics and chemistry of the solid state.

The student should have some understanding of the physics and chemistry of macroscopic solids and models developed to explain properties, such as the theory of phonon and lattice vibrations, and electronic band structure. Many of the chapters will examine these models to see what they predict when one or more dimensions of a solid have a nanometer length. In some instances this will lead to unexplored territory where no experimental information exists. Each chapter will be followed by a series of exercises designed to enhance the students' understanding of the reason properties change in the nanometer regime of size.
