This book reports up-to-the-minute research on several topics dealing with advanced nanostructures designed for specific applications, such as nanoparticles for drug delivery, nanomedecine, and nanoelectronics; micro-electromechnical systems for biosensors; and nanomaterials for low-cost and efficient dye-sensitized solar-cell applications.

It’s important to note that the research described in this book was primarily conducted in Australia, and the publication is the product of a book-writing workshop held December 2013 at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. Several of my students and colleagues who have read the book (or at least parts of it) have found it pleasurable and valuable. It is a great addition to the large collection of textbook literature on the subject.
