About this product
- DescriptionDevices ermously smaller than before will remodel engineering, chemistry, medicine, and computer techlogy. How can we understand machines that are so small? Nasystems covers it all: power and strength, friction and wear, thermal ise and quantum uncertainty. This is the book for starting the next century of engineering. - Marvin Minsky MIT Science magazine calls Eric Drexler Mr. Natechlogy. For years, Drexler has stirred controversy by declaring that molecular natechlogy will bring a sweeping techlogical revolution - delivering tremendous advances in miniaturization, materials, computers, and manufacturing of all kinds. Now, he's written a detailed, top-to-bottom analysis of molecular machinery - how to design it, how to analyze it, and how to build it. Nasystems is the first scientifically detailed description of developments that will revolutionize most of the industrial processes and products currently in use. This groundbreaking work draws on physics and chemistry to establish basic concepts and analytical tools. The book then describes namechanical components, devices, and systems, including parallel computers able to execute 1020 instructions per second and desktop molecular manufacturing systems able to make such products. Via chemical and biochemical techniques, proximal probe instruments, and software for computer-aided molecular design, the book charts a path from present laboratory capabilities to advanced molecular manufacturing. Bringing together physics, chemistry, mechanical engineering, and computer science, Nasystems provides an indispensable introduction to the emerging field of molecular natechlogy.
- Author BiographyK. ERIC DREXLER published the first scientific paper on molecular nanotechnology in 1981. In addition, he taught the first course on the subject (at Stanford University) and chaired the first two conferences. He is currently President of the Foresight Institute and a Research Fellow of the Institute for Molecular Manufacturing. He wrote Nanosystems while a Visiting Scholar at the Stanford University Department of Computer Science and continues to lecture at universities and corporations in the U.S., Europe, and Japan. He received his doctoral degree in molecular nanotechnology from MIT.
