Nanoscale: Visualizing an Invisible World - 09 edition

Nanoscale: Visualizing an Invisible World (ISBN10: 0262012839; ISBN13: 9780262012836)
ISBN13: 978-0262012836
ISBN10: 0262012839

Summary: "This book gives us a tour of the invisible nanoscale world. It offers many vivid color illustrations of atomic structures, each accompanied by a short, engagingly written essay. The structures advance from the simple (air, ice) to the complex (supercapacitor, rare earth magnet). Each subject was chosen not in search of comprehensiveness but because it illustrates how atomic structure creates a property (such as hardness, color, or toxicity), or because it has a
great story, or simply because it is beautiful." The color illustrations by Stephen Deffeyes are based on data from X-ray diffraction (a method used in crystallography). They are not just pretty pictures but visualizations of scientific data derived directly from those data. Together with Kenneth Deffeyes's witty commentary, they offer a vivid demonstration of the diversity and beauty found at the nanometer scale.
