The essence of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology is the ability tofabricate and engineer materials, structures and systems where themanipulation of the properties and functionalities is a result of thecontrol of the material's building blocks whose dimension is in thenanometer regime. This book presents an in-depth description ofnanostructures and the many ways that they can be advantageouslyengineered by the controlled assembly of suitable nano-objects asbuilding blocks. Nanotechnology is here considered as an enablingtechnology by which existing materials, virtually all man-made, canacquire novel properties and functionalities, making them suitable fornovel applications varying from structural and functional to advancedbiomedical in-vivo and in-vitro uses.The book emphasizes the development of useful implementations andapplications of nanotechnology. One key issue addressed is how toaccess, from the macroscopic world, the extremely high informationdensity of nanostructured systems. One way to do this is by usingbio-inspiration - techniques where we apply lessons learned fromliving systems to design new materials with localized feedbackmechanisms. Specifically, the book evaluates the most advanced andinnovative syntheses of nanostructures, the most novel properties andfunctionalities and the most potential applications as components ofadvanced technological systems and as materials tailored for a greatvariety of special needs.
