About Book:  Praise for the first edition "clear and informative´┐Ż ´┐ŻChemistry World The authors provide the perfect training tool for the workforce in nanotech development by presenting the fundamental principles that govern the fabrication, characterization, and application of nanomaterials. This edition represents a complete overhaul, giving a much more complete, self-contained introduction. As before, the text avoids excessive mathematical detail and is written in an easy to follow, appealing style suitable for anyone, regardless of background in physics, chemistry, engineering, or biology. The organization has been revised to include fundamental physical chemistry and physics pertaining to relevant electrical, mechanical, and optical material properties. Incorporates new and expanded content on hard materials, semiconductors for nanoelectronics, and nonlinear optical materials. Adds many more worked examples and end-of-chapter problems. Provides more complete coverage of fundamentals including relevant aspects of thermodynamics, kinetics, quantum mechanics, and solid-state physics, and also significantly expands treatment of solid-phase systems. Malkiat S. Johal is a professor of physical chemistry at Pomona College, and earned his doctorate in physical chemistry at the University of Cambridge, UK. Lewis E. Johnson is a research scientist at the University of Washington, where he also earned his doctorate in chemistry and nanotechnology.
