Learning Bio-Micro-Nanotechnology by Mel I. Mendelson

By Mel I. Mendelson

Learning Bio-Micro-Nanotechnology is a primer on micro/nanotechnology that teaches the vocabulary, basic ideas, and purposes of micro/nanotechnology in biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, electronics, pcs, biomedicine, microscopy, ethics, and dangers to humankind. It offers an advent into the small international with a low fog index, emphasizing the recommendations utilizing analogies and illustrations to simplify the non-observables.

The chapters have many "thinking workouts" and summaries with references on the finish of every bankruptcy. The questions on the finish are divided into Bloom’s taxonomy of studying abilities and in addition comprise crew routines and strategies to evaluate studying. there are various calculations utilizing dimensional research in keeping with first ideas, however the math is purposely stored at a low point and is used as a way of figuring out the recommendations. The appendices supply a math evaluate and a thesaurus of terms.

Carefully designed as an easy-to-read textbook and a pragmatic reference, this e-book emphasizes studying micro/nanotechnology vocabulary, techniques, and functions from first ideas and from a multi-disciplinary standpoint. This makes it appropriate for one- and two-semester classes in addition to a reference for execs within the field.

2, we have 1 m = 103 mm = 106 μm = 109 nm. Each conversion changes by 1000 as you go down the scale (m → mm → μm → nm). And the inverse is true when converting nanometers: 1 nm = 10−3 μm = 10−6 mm = 10−9 m, as you go up the scale (nm → μm → mm → m). 2 Illustration of features in the human body from smallest (atoms) to largest (human) and vice versa. : Anatomy and Physiology for Dummies. p. 15. 2002. Copyright Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA. ] Now we can use these unit conversions to show the size of features covering nine orders of magnitude—1–10−9 m (1 nm).

Nanotechnology relates to molecules, nano-size devices, and nanoparticles. The difference between microtechnology and nanotechnology lies in (a) their size range, (b) type of synthetic materials, and (c) their method of manufacturing (topdown vs. bottom-up). Top-down and bottom-up methods describe the ways that microscopic and nanoscopic structures, respectively, are assembled. Nanotechnology is defined as “measuring, manufacturing, and manipulating” materials in the size range 1–100 nm. Manipulation is the human assembly of molecules.

10. In his PhD thesis, Einstein predicted the sugar molecule (like glucose, C 6H12O6) had a size of ∼1 nm. Sugar is just a hexagonal stacking of carbon atoms in one plane. 4 Is Smaller Better? There are several reasons why smaller sizes are better. If we want to mimic nature’s creations, we must follow nature’s format at the molecular level. For example, smaller sizes are less invasive to the body and less likely to be rejected by our immune system if they are implanted (in vivo). In addition, nanostructures exhibit novel physical, chemical, and biological properties due to their small size.
