This book provides readers with the knowledge in fundamentals of nanoelectronic devices. The authors build the principles of nanoelectronic devices based on those of microelectronic devices wherever possible and introduce the inherently nanoelectronic principles gradually. They briefly review quantum mechanics and solid-state physics that can form the basis of semiconductor device physics. The book also covers the basics of electron transport and p–n junctions, develops the operations of MOS capacitors and MOSFETs, and introduces some basic CMOS circuits. The last chapter is devoted to the nano-biotechnology application of field-effect transistors.

"This is a unique book that offers basic knowledge, operation principles, and applications of nanoelectronic devices. With ample schematic illustrations and clear descriptions, the book is suitable for grasping the ideas of various types of devices and going into profound physics that appears in each device. I strongly recommend this book to graduate students and young researchers and engineers in industries and academia."
—Prof Toshiro Hiramoto - Institute of Industrial Science, University of Tokyo, Japan
"This book provides a timely bridge from the basic quantum mechanical theories (especially those in solid-state physics) to modern electronic devices, including nanowire field-effect transistors (NW-FETs), single-electron transistors (SETs), and biomolecular sensors. This book is an excellent textbook and reference for senior undergraduates, graduates, and professionals in the field of micro- and nanoelectronics. The book is written in a pedagogical way, and the concepts are explained in a precise manner."
—Prof Zhiping Yu - Tsinghua University, China
"The authors have done a good job of correlating physics with engineering principles, which is noteworthy. …The topics are coherent and meticulously described given how difficult it is to explain such advanced concepts. This book, which encourages readers to learn the fundamentals of physics before venturing into device design and application, is a great resource for both graduate students and researchers..."
