Nanoelectronics and Synergistic Nanodisciplines

  • Vinod Kumar Khanna
Part of the NanoScience and Technology book series (NANO)


The fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology are introduced. The key terminology is defined. The reader is familiarized with the five fundamental interrelated nanodisciplines: nanoelectronics, nanomagnetics, nanophotonics, nanomechanics, and nanobiotechnology. Salient features of these disciplines are described. Three sub-domains of nanoelectronics known as more Moore, more-than-Moore, and beyond CMOS are explained. The association of different nanoscience disciplines with nanoelectronics is brought out. A synthetic treatment of these disciplines is stressed and the key idea of the book is elaborated.
