This book joins, for the first time, technical nanotechnology information with
the non-technical to explain the fundamentals -- with an emphasis on a succinct
set of principles.
It takes a "first principles" look at the economics of converting
research results to products, highly important due to the potentially disruptive
nature of nanotechnology.
How nanotechnology builds on earlier technologies is shown while introducing
its own unique paradoxes. The book surveys what has actually been realized,
comparing laboratory achievements with commercially successful products, and
offers a profound, clear analysis of industrial impacts and current applications.
