Nanotechnology for Microelectronics and Photonics, Second Edition outlines the fundamental solid-state physics concepts that explain the new properties of matter caused by the reduction of solids to the nanometer scale. Applications of these electronic properties are also explored, helping students and researchers appreciate the current status and future potential of nanotechnology as applied to the electronics industry. This revised, updated, comprehensive book covers the many novel nanoscale applications in micro-optics and microelectronics that have been developed in recent years, while also looking to the future.

This book is an invaluable reference source for both industrial scientists and graduate students looking for a scholarly guide on how nanostructured materials and nanoscale devices are currently used in both micro-optics and microelectronics.

Key Features

  • Explains the behavioral changes which occur in solids at the nanoscale, making them the basis of a new generation of electronic devices
  • Includes detailed coverage of the properties, processing and applications of nanostructured materials when used for optics and electronics
  • Offers clear-and-concise coverage on how nanotechnology can be used in the areas of micro-optics and micro-electronics
