Get up to speed on nanotechnology and the many biological, chemical, physical, environmental, and political aspects of this developing science

Ever wonder how they make tiny machines? The booming field of nanotechnology is all about building highly advanced super-small machines and devices
from the ground up. Nanotechnology Demystified provides you with
everything you need to know about the many biological, chemical,
physical, environmental, and political aspects of nanotechnology.
There's no faster, easier way to enhance your knowledge of this
up-and-coming branch of science where little doesn't mean less, it means
more: more super-small devices, more jobs, more research opportunities
for you.

With Nanotechnology Demystified, you can master nanotechnology one simple step at a time -- at your own pace. This
unique, self-teaching guide features multiple-choice questions at the
end of each chapter to pinpoint weaknesses, and a final exam to
reinforce what you've learned in the book.

This one-of-a-kind, self-teaching text offers:

Valuable Nanotech Notes, Tips, Scientific News, and International Trends
Coverage of nanotechnology's influence on pharmaceuticals, biomedical
applications, energy, communications, engineering, and the environment
An accessible way to understand topics like carbon nanotubes, quantum
dots, nano optics, lab-on-a-chip sensors, nanocomposites, DNA computers,
and more
A final exam that you can take and grade yourself
Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student,
Nanotechnology Demystified is your shortcut to mastering the science of
the very small.

It is exciting to learn about the nanoscale world and nanotechnology's influence on pharmaceuticals, biomedical
applications, energy, communications, engineering and the environment.
The most amazing stuff are 'nanomedicine' and 'quantum computing &
communications'. For your information, nanomedicine describes the
medical field of targeting disease or repairing damaged tissues at the
molecular level. Quantum computers will be able to process and store
huge amounts of information. Quantum processing can operate millions,
even billions of times faster than today's supercomputers!
Nanotechnology promises to bring vast improvements in technology and standard of
living in the next generation, and "Nanotechnology Demystified" is a
good way for the general reader to get up to speed on this exciting new
field. The author explains the basic scientific concepts behind
nanotechnology, and then describes the expected advances that
nanotechnology will make possible in areas such as health care, energy,
computing, communications, electronics, and more. This is a book that
will make the reader excited about the future. Nanotechnology
Nanotechnology forms the basis of many evolving and upcoming technologies. This is an easy way to have a closer look at the
technology without going through all the technical...

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
