The research, technology and applications driving the growth of nanoelectronics are considered in Nanoelectronics Principles and Devices. The 438-page book brings together the fields of solid-state physics, quantum mechanics, chemistry, biology and electronics, which are converging in the development of the technology. It covers the design and simulation of the devices, as well as innovative tools, such as atomic force, scanning tunneling and scanning near optical field microscopes. Advances in molecular and biological devices are detailed. Sections cover the integration of bio- and nanodevices, molecular-based optic and optoelectronic devices, and the characterization and manipulation of molecular systems, including measurement techniques for molecular conduction. Charts, diagrams, references and an index are provided. Mircea Dragoman and Daniela Dragoman; Artech House Inc., Norwood, Mass., 2006; $89.
