The idea of studying nano-structures was established in the year 1959 when Nobel laureate and theoretical physicist Richard Feynman spoke about miniaturizing old-age computers in his famous talk entitled “There’s plenty of room at the bottom”. Recently, the 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry awarded to Prof. Jean Pierre Sauvage, Prof. Sir J. Fraser Stoddart, and Prof. Bernard Lucas Feringa “for the design and synthesis of molecular machines”, established yet another key milestone in the history of nanotechnology. Nanotechnology, in recent years, has delivered innovations that have the potential to completely transform the direction of technological advances in a wide range of applications such as nano-engineering, nano-materials, nano-electronics and nano-medicine. The evolution of nano-technology is undoubtedly going to result in sweeping changes to humanity and our society. Not just limited to engineering and material sciences, the innovations in nano-technology have allowed us to come up with a logical deduction towards understanding the complex and multiple associations within biomolecules and biological systems.

This book takes us on a voyage through the realm of new discoveries and innovations in the field of nano-technology. The book consists of twenty-three chapters; each chapter addresses specific facets of nanoscience and nano-engineering involving basic concepts of physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics for the development of new products. This enthralling journey takes us through multifarious terrains of nanotechnology, such as nano-electronic products, nano-technology for electronic modules, characteristics and application of field effect transistors as sensors. In addition, it includes extensive discussion on nanomaterials applications, including but not limited to, nano-dentistry and cosmetic industry and energy harvesting using solar cells.

In light of the recent inventions, discoveries and breakthroughs in the field of nano-technology, this book promises to equally delight nano-technology researchers, students and enthusiasts.
