Biomimetic Nanotechnology: Senses and Movement

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


This is an interdisciplinary book for biomimetic nanotechnology, that correlates the biology on the molecular scale with nanotechnology mimicking human senses and movement. The introduction provides the background in life science, chemistry, material science, and engineering needed to understand sensors and movement on the molecular level. The chapters discuss human movement, vision, smell and taste, hearing, and touch. Each chapter explains the sense or movement on the molecular level, then discusses nanotechnology that uses the human molecules or mimics the function of the human sense and movement on the nanoscale. This is an excellent book for senior undergraduates and graduate students in the life sciences, chemistry, material sciences, and engineering. It will also appeal to any reader with an interest in life sciences and nanotechnology. Revised and updated due to rapidly-changing field Discusses biological molecules responsible for a sense or movement and their application in artificial systems Any scientist can use this book to design their own biomimetic nanotechnology experiments.
