Experts' Reading Lists

Have you ever wondered what nanotechnology experts are reading? We got the scoop.

"I mainly read the technical journals (Science, PRL, etc.). I find the Virtual Journal of Nanoscale Science & Technology put together by the American Institute of Physics particularly useful."

Lloyd J. Whitman
Naval Research Laboratory

"I get many nanotechnological informations from Science and Nature."

Gerd Bachmann, Ph.D
VDI Technology Center, Germany

"Drexler's 1992 book 'Nanosystems' is one of the most interesting books because it points out much of the potential for nanotechnology, even if many aspects of it may be impractical or technologically impossible at the present time. Many of the arguments in it may break down or not be true in a rigorous sense, but I think the the book does a wonderful job of conveying nanotechnology and its possibilities."

Robert Hamers, Ph.D
University of Wisconsin-Madison

"A book I'd recommend is Nanomedicine, by Robert A. Freitas Jr.; Landes Bioscience, 1999, ISBN 157059645X.

Eric Drexler, Ph.D
Foresight Institute

"Right now my favorite literature for keeping up with nanotechnology are the journals Science and Nature. It seems that every other issue has some reported breakthrough. As far as books go, my favorite book on nanotubes is the book by Dresselhaus, Dresselhaus and Eklund titled 'Science of Fullerenes and Carbon Nanotubes'."

Susan B. Sinnott, Ph.D
University of Florida

"The journals I read are: Science, Nature, Physical Rev. Letts., Advanced Materials, Appl. Phys. Letts."
