ABOUT THE BOOK
This volume from the “Micro and Nanoengineering” series (edited by
the Publishing House of the Romanian Academy) includes the papers
which have been presented at the Seventh Seminar of
Nanoengineering and Nanotechnologies organized in 20 March 2008 by
the Romanian Academy, and IMT-Bucharest.
The papers published in this volume are focused on a variety of
subjects related to nanomaterials and nanotechnologies and
presents a relevant image about the status of research of this
field in Romania. In a few cases, they reflect the so-called
“convergent technologies”: micro-nano-bio-info, a domain of
outstanding importance for a variety of applications.
This volume is addressed to all interested people from
universities, research institutes or companies working in
nanoscience, nanotechnologies and “convergent technologies”
(micro-nano-bio-info). It will be distributed to the university
