Nanosciences and nanotechnology are at the interface between physics, chemistry, engineering and biology. The fundamental processes of living matter occur on the nanometre scale. This book is based on local probes (STM, AFM, SNOM) and related supreme technological acheivements. Topics are covered extensively, covering issues such as: clusters, nanocontacts, photonic bad gap materials, atom manipulation by light, atom optics with Bose-Einstein condensates, and quantum computing.
