They survey the entire fieldtechnology and businesscovering nanobots, molecular electronics, quantum computing, biostructures, nanotubes, molecular motors, nanosensors, and many other breakthrough applications. They provide easy-to-understand explanations of every key concept, plus dozens of visuals that bring nanotechnology to life. Coverage includes: A simple, brief, almost math-free introduction to nanotech science; "Grand tour" of nanotech R & D, from "smart materials" to DNA computing; Breakthrough biomedical applications, including neuro-electronic interfaces and new drug delivery systems; Current and emerging nanotech systems for optoelectronics and communications; Nanotech here and now: nano-enhanced tennis balls, suntan lotions, and other products already in the market; A realistic assessment of nanotech investment opportunities for the short- and long-term; Ethical issues associated with nanotech research and product development."@en ;
