This is a very good book about the physics of nanowire transistors and their applications in advanced circuits. The book has seven chapters, which are written for undergraduate and graduate students.

The first three chapters are introductory and deal with MOS transistors and their short-channel effects, nanowires and multigate transistors, and basic notions on the fabrication of nanowire transistors. Chapters four and five focus on the modeling and experimental studies of nanowires. The last two chapters are dedicated to more advanced issues, such as scattering in nanowires and nanowire transistors circuits. The book is written by renowned authors in a very clear manner, so that students will benefit greatly by reading it.
