About the book
Recent discoveries of innovative materials, both organic and inorganic, from one side and unprecedented mandate for more cutting-edge technologies from the other side have pushed many research directions toward a cumulative focus on micro and nanofabrication. Predominantly, the state-of-the-art advances in a vast range of sciences including, but not limited to, quantum computing, nano-bio-electronics, and integrated photonics have led the technology in such a directon that nanotechnology is referred to as one of the fastest-growing fields of science. In this context, enormous investments have been made in the development of dedicated micro/nanofacitilies, advanced nanotools as well as sophisticated down-scaling techniques that require the companionship of theorists too.
To this date, the field has provided advances in certain aspects of aerospace industry, medicine, military, communication, social sciences, computing, and some other industries, to a great extent. Granted its undeniable role, this book will render a diverse, yet comprehensive, evaluation of the latest nanofabrication technologies and theories among which are some inventions with breakthrough standing.
