PREFACE
PREFACEOver the past 20 years, there have been tremendous developments in microelectronics, microfabrication technology, MEMS and NEMS, quantum structures (e.g., superlattices, nanowires, nanotubes, and nanoparticles), optoelectronics and lasers, including ultrafast lasers, and molecular- to atomic-level imaging techniques (such as high-resolution electron microscopy, scanning tunneling microscopy, atomic force microscopy, near-field optical microscopy, and scanning thermal microscopy). The field is fast moving into scaling up and systems engineering to explore the unlimited potential that nanoscience and nanoengineering may offer to restructure the technologies in the new millennia. When the characteristic length becomes comparable t…
