There is a growing understanding that the progress of the conventional silicon technology will reach its physical, engineering and economic limits in about a decade. What will take us beyond 2010 are new molecular and other nanotechnologies that require the efforts of trans-disciplinary teams of physicists, quantum chemists, material and computer scientists, and engineers. This volume represents a unique collection of interdisciplinary review and original papers by experts in molecular nanowires, carbon nanotubes, mesoscopic super- and semiconductors, and theorists in the field of strongly correlated electrons and phonons. Topics include molecular nanojunctions and electronics, mesoscale semiconductors and superconductors, carbon nanotubes, low dimensional conductors, polarons and strongly-correlated electrons in nanoobjects, quantum theory of nanoscale, and new techniques for making nano and mesoscopic sensors and detectors.
