Abstract:

Enthusiasts look forward to a time when tiny machines reassemble matter and process information with unparalleled power and precision. Is their vision realistic? This book explains why the nanoworld is so different to the macro-world, and shows how nanotechnology will have more in common with biology than conventional engineering. - ;Enthusiasts look forward to a time when tiny machines reassemble matter and process information with unparalleled power and precision. But is their vision realistic? Where is the science heading? As nanotechnology (a new technology that many believe will transform.
