At The Nanoscale: An Introductory Textbook" to their offering.
"This book provides a very detailed and interesting overview of the fundamental
principles of nanoscience, discusses the background of several nanoscience experimental
techniques, and sheds light on some of the visionary and important applications
in the truly interdisciplinary area of nanotechnology. This book will be a useful
reference book for graduate students, and is expected to attract a lot of attention,
not only from new graduate students, but also from more senior scientists interested
in the fascinating area of nanoscience and nanotechnology, and those who are
involved in a wide spectrum of disciplines ranging from physics, chemistry,
surface science, spectroscopy, materials science, engineering to medicine."

Nanotechnology is one of the most important growth areas of this century. Nanoscience,
the science underpinning nanotechnology, is a multidisciplinary subject covering
atomic, molecular and solid state physics, as well as much of chemistry. Nanostructures
are known to exhibit novel and improved material properties, fundamentally because
the physical and chemical properties are very different when dimensions are
reduced to the nanometer range. This book thus aims to introduce the various
basic principles and knowledge needed for students to understand science at
Many ideas proposed in nanotechnology are frontier and futuristic, although
some have immediate technological applications. The core scientific principles
of all nanotechnology applications, however, are grounded in physics and chemistry.
There are currently numerous specialized nanoscience and nanotechnology-related
texts or monographs at the graduate and senior undergraduate levels. This textbook
is targeted at the junior undergraduate level or as a reference text for advanced
learners at pre-university and senior high school. It has evolved from the authors'
own teaching experience at tertiary institutions.
Readership: This book is suitable for science undergraduates, and can be used
as a reference for pre-university science students.
