Title: Principles of nanoscience: An overview
Authors: Behari, Jitendra
Keywords: Bottom up approach
DNA biotechnology
Nanoparticles
Quantum dot
Top down approach
Issue Date: Oct-2010
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: The scientific basis of nanotechnology as envisaged from the first principles is compared to bulk behavior. Development of nanoparticles having controllable physical and electronic properties has opened up possibility of designing artificial solids. Top down and bottom up approaches are emphasized. The role of nanoparticle (quantum dots) application in nanophotonics (photovoltaic cell), and drug delivery vehicle is discussed. Fundamentals of DNA structure as the prime site in bionanotechnological manipulations is also discussed. A summary of presently available devices and applications are presented.
