"Nanophysics is the study of the control of matter on an atomic and molecular scale. Generally nanophysics deals with structures of the size 100 nanometers or smaller, and involves developing materials or devices within that size. Nanophysics is very diverse, ranging from novel extensions of conventional device physics, to completely new approaches based upon molecular self-assembly, to developing new materials with dimensions on the nanoscale, even to speculation on whether we can directly control matter on the atomic scale.
Basically, the law which the nano-systems follow is the same as the much bigger ones, but sue to the small size, the nano-system show features much different to normal ones. Due to that,many useful properties can be gain from the nano-systems. There has been much debate on the future of implications of nanophysics. Nanophysics has the potential to create many new materials and devices with wide-ranging applications, such as in medicine, electronics, and energy production.
On the other hand, nanophysics raises many of the same issues as with any introduction of new technology, including concerns about the toxicity and environmental impact of nanomaterials, and their potential effects on global economics, as well as speculation about various doomsday scenarios. These concerns have led to a debate among advocacy groups and governments on whether special regulation of nanophysics is warranted.
Special effort has been made to appeal to students' natural curiosity and to help them explore the various facets of the exciting subject area of NanoPhysics. Written in clear, simple language understandable to the general reader, yet in-depth enough for scientists, educators and advanced students. The style is easy to read and suitable for nonnative English speakers and translators with no engineering experience."
