By A. G. Davies, J. M. T. Thompson

This publication outlines a variety of interesting advances presently being made world wide within the box of contemporary engineering on the nanometer scale. major scientists and engineers provide a common evaluation of study advances of their really good topic components. in addition they describe a few of their very own state-of-the-art examine and provides their visions of the long run. Written in a favored and well-illustrated type, the articles are written by way of younger scientists lots of whom carry, or have held, prestigious Royal Society or EPSRC Fellowships. conscientiously chosen via Professor A G Davies and Professor J M T Thompson FRS, issues contain: the fabrication and dimension of nanoelectronic units, natural conductors, and bioelectronic fabrics; the meeting of such constructions into acceptable configurations, together with using organic procedures to force the meeting; the advance of latest fabrics together with either natural and inorganic wires, carbon nanotubes, and magnetic fabrics; and at last, the research and characterization of those buildings. The publication conveys the thrill and exuberance of the authors for his or her paintings on the frontiers of recent engineering nanotechnology. All are definitive stories for readers with a basic curiosity sooner or later instructions of technology and engineering on the nanometer scale.

Humberto Terrones, born in Mexico City 1962, studied at Iberoamericana University, where he graduated with first class honors in engineering physics in 1987. He obtained his PhD from Birkbeck College, University of London. After a postdoctoral stay at the University of Cambridge, UK, he returned to Mexico to the Institute of Physics, UNAM, in Mexico City, where he worked until 2001, when he was appointed as head of the Advanced Materials Department at a newly formed multidisciplinary institute (IPICYT) in San Luis Potosi, Mexico.
