This updated second edition puts nanotechnologies into perspective by explaining issues in health, environmental and military application domains, and discusses the technology in the context of current media and ethical debates. It also introduces the ambitious, and perhaps almost utopian, NBIC programme (Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Information Technology and Cognitive Science); an initiative that foresees the 'reunification' of science by encouraging collaboration among specialists of different scientific domains.
About the Author: Michel Wautelet is a professor at the University of Mons-Hainaut, Belgium. His research concerns the physics of laser-matter interaction and nanosciences. In particular, he is concerned with the stability and phase diagrams of nanosystems. He is also active in the educational and popularisation aspects of modern science and technology.
For scientists and engineers wanting to learn more about nanotechnology and its applications.
