Nano- and Microtechnology from A - Z: From Nanosystems to Colloids and Interfaces

Book Description

This reference provides brief explanations for the most important terms that may be encountered in a study of the fundamental principles, experimental investigations, and industrial applications of nano- and microscience, including colloid and interface science. More than a dictionary, the book also provides information on properties, units, equations, techniques, and pioneers in the field. The comprehensive content covers both current and older terms, complete cross-references for the most important synonyms, abbreviations, and acronyms, and numerous tables for the quick overview.

An authoritative reference, vital for unhindered communication and knowledge transfer in this fast-growing and broadly interdisciplinary field.
