Size Really Does Matter: The Nanotechnology Revolution, Hardback Book

Size Really Does Matter: The Nanotechnology Revolution Hardback

Description

Nanotechnology is a buzz word many of us have heard but are uncertain what it really means.

This book works to dispel the myths and unravel the truth about this branch of science and technology that has already touched many aspects of our lives, from cheaper and faster medical diagnostic tools and more effective ways to deliver existing ones to helping to create new medicines and electronic devices.Size Really Does Matter starts by looking at the science and history of nanotechnology, followed by real-life examples of how it is used, what cutting-edge research is being carried out and why, and potential risks of this exciting new technology.It is written in an accessible style with genuine enthusiasm for the topics it addresses, including how nanotechnology hopes to address problems in several fields, such as cancer research, novel devices, new materials and improved manufacturing methods for existing products.Dr Colm Durkan talks about this book on the University of Cambridge's websiteColm in conversation with Luke Robert Mason, a science communicator and the Director of Virtual Futures at Waterstone, Cambridge.

Durkan & Mason discuss why quantum theory is both 'silly and unquestionably correct', how nanotech is portrayed by Hollywood, the new forms of diagnosis made possible by labs-on-chips, atomic manipulation, and much more!
