Download e-book for kindle: Learning Bio-Micro-Nanotechnology by Mel I. Mendelson

By Mel I. Mendelson

Learning Bio-Micro-Nanotechnology is a primer on micro/nanotechnology that teaches the vocabulary, basic thoughts, and purposes of micro/nanotechnology in biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, electronics, pcs, biomedicine, microscopy, ethics, and dangers to humankind. It offers an creation into the small global with a low fog index, emphasizing the recommendations utilizing analogies and illustrations to simplify the non-observables.

The chapters have many "thinking routines" and summaries with references on the finish of every bankruptcy. The questions on the finish are divided into Bloom’s taxonomy of studying abilities and likewise comprise crew workouts and strategies to evaluate studying. there are lots of calculations utilizing dimensional research in accordance with first ideas, however the math is purposely stored at a low point and is used as a way of realizing the options. The appendices offer a math evaluation and a word list of terms.

Carefully designed as an easy-to-read textbook and a realistic reference, this publication emphasizes studying micro/nanotechnology vocabulary, ideas, and functions from first rules and from a multi-disciplinary perspective. This makes it appropriate for one- and two-semester classes in addition to a reference for execs within the field.

3 is very important because it relates the size scales to physical features in the macroscopic, microscopic, and nanoscopic worlds. Electronics and computers are intimately connected to biology (and medicine). Small technology is cross-disciplinary convergence of the life sciences, physical sciences, and engineering, which is surrounded by ethical and social issues. 12.

Ten micrometers was the size of transistors on a chip in 1990. We need an optical microscope or scanning electron microscope in order to see these features, which will be discussed in Chapter 6. 7 Nano (n) This is the size range (10−9 m) of a virus (∼50 nm) and current size of transistors on a chip (∼22 nm). It also is the size range of many molecules (Chapters 2 and 3). In order to see these 8 ◾ Learning Bio-Micro-Nanotechnology small features, we must use higher-powered microscopes—like an atomic force microscope or transmission electron microscope (see Chapter 6).

7): molecules, nanodevices, and nanoparticles or colloids. Examples of these materials will be given later in the chapter. ” The term “nanotechnology” was first coined in the early 1970s by a Japanese scientist, Norio Taniguchi. He defined nanotechnology as working at the nano-level—one billionth of a meter (10−9 m). 7), nanotechnology has been further defined as measuring, manufacturing, and manipulating materials at the nanometer scale—one billionth of a meter. 8b. Again, nanotechnology implies the structures are synthetic or man-made.
