Selected Topics in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology contains a collection of papers in the subfields of scanning probe microscopy, nanofabrication, functional nanoparticles and nanomaterials, molecular engineering and bionanotechnology. Written by experts in their respective fields, it is intended for a general scientific readership who may be non-specialists in these subjects, but who want a reasonably comprehensive introduction to them. This volume is also suitable as resource material for a senior undergraduate or introductory graduate course in nanoscience and nanotechnology.The review articles have been published in journal COSMOS Vol 3 & 4.
