Nanotechnology 101 does exactly that. This accessible volume provides readers -- whether students new to the field or just interested members of the lay public -- with the essential ideas of the new science of nanotechnology using a minimum of jargon and mathematics. Concepts are introduced in a progressive order so that more complicted ideas build on simpler ones, and each is discussed in small, bite-sized segments so that they can be more easily understood. Nanotechnology 101 provides contemporary topics about the infusion of nanotechnology in the areas of the environment, food safety, medicine and healthcare, consumer goods, agriculture, homeland security, and energy supply. Coverage includes: BLHow nanotechnology is going to change our future workplace and workforce BLSocietal and ethical implications of nanoscience and nanotechnology BLCareers in the expanding field of nanotechnology BLMany of the major companies, universities, and government organizations that are investing in nanotechnology research and nanofabrication BLWebsites to explore hands-on nanotechnology activities and classroom projects BLA close alignment with the National Science Education Standards. With a bibliography, sidebars, and interviews with leading figures in the field, Nanotechnology 101 provides the perfect starting point for anyone wishing to understand this burgeoning science
