Introduction to Nanoelectronics

This textbook is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary account of the technology
and science underpinning nanoelectronics, covering the underlying physics, nanostructures,
nanomaterials, and nanodevices. It provides a unifying framework for the basic
ideas needed to understand the developments in the field. After introducing
the recent trends in semiconductor and device nanotechnologies, as well as novel
device concepts, the methods of growth, fabrication and characterization of
materials for nanoelectronics are discussed. Coverage then moves to an analysis
of nanostructures including recently-discovered nanoobjects, and concludes with
a discussion of devices that use a 'simple' scaling-down approach to copy well-known
microelectronic devices, and nanodevices based on new principles that cannot
be realized at the macroscale. With numerous illustrations and homework problems,
this textbook is suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in
electrical and electronic engineering, nanoscience, materials, bioengineering
and chemical engineering.
