About this book


Nanoelectronics and Photonics: From Atoms to Materials, Devices, and Architectures provides a description of the core elements and challenges of advanced and future information technology. By linking the materials physics and chemistry at the atomic scale with device and circuit design and performance requirements, tutorial chapters from leaders in the field present a coherent picture of theoretical and experimental research efforts and technology development in this highly interdisciplinary area. Short visionary articles by Nicolaas Bloembergen, Nobel Laureate in Physics (1981), Konstantin Likharev, distinguished professor at Stony Brook University, and Stanley Williams, senior fellow and director of the Quantum Science Research group at Hewlett-Packard, offer unique perspectives and insights. Nanoelectronics and Photonics is essential reading for researchers and graduate students in materials science, device physics, and electrical and computer engineering.

Key Features:

Provides an authoritative overview of the current status and future trends of nanoelectronics and photonics

Presents broad-ranging tutorials on both theoretical and experimental aspects of key topics in nanotechnology

Written by recognized international experts in each area

Addresses the needs of both graduate students and nanotechnology “gurus”
