Containing a broad survey of current research across a wide range of disciplines, Nanoelectromechanics in Engineering and Biology provides a thorough grounding in present knowledge and understanding of the phenomena of nanometer-scale particle manipulation. The book explores how electromechanics can be applied to the sorting of DNA molecules, examining viruses, constructing electronics devices with carbon nanotubes, and actuating nanoscale electric motors. It also provides a wealth of application and background knowledge, from using electric fields for particle sorting in laboratories-on-a-chip to electrode fabrication, electric field simulation, and computer analysis."Overall, this is the first book noted to unite and directly address particle electrokinetics and nanotechnology. Hughes provides a thorough description of the phenomena associated with nanoscale particle manipulation. ? [A] significant amount of information on applications and background knowledge is provided for each technology described." - Micro/Nano, July 2004"Dr. Hughes' book?is unique in bridging the gap between key disciplines critical to the future of nanotechnology in the 21st century. The boundaries between disciplines are fast disappearing, but few textbooks have captured the need for providing students with a spectrum of information across the key areas of science and technology where it is predicted many new developments will take place. This is at the critical interface between nanoscience, mechanical and electrical/electronic engineering and biology. The many academic institutions that are in the process of setting up truly multidisciplinary departments and research groups will find this timely publication neatly fills what was until now a worrying vacuum." -Ottilia Saxl, CEO, The Institute of Nanotechnology
