Description

Nano technology is the next revolution in our daily lives, which is already under way, with its amazing applications in electronics, biology, physics, materials and engineering. The book explains the basics of the new technology, its historical development, and the ongoing advances, including the pioneering work done in India.

This is a non-technical preview of the wide range of applications based on namomaterials, especially in detecting genetic defects as well as the concerns expressed on the potential negative impact of the new technology on society and its possible use by terrorists.

REVIEW

I welcome his book written for the lay reader by an eminent science communicator. He has provided an excellent introduction to the subject and a balanced presentation. I hope the book will motivate young people to take up nanoscience and nanotechnology for study.
