A new high-level book for professionals from Atlantis Press providing an overview of nanotechnologies now and their applications in a broad variety of fields, including information and communication technologies, environmental sciences and engineering, societal life, and medicine, with provision of customized treatments. The book shows where nanotechnology is now - a fascinating time when the science is transitioning into complex systems with impact on new products. Present and future developments are addressed, as well as a larger number of new industrial and research opportunities deriving from this domain. An overview for professionals, researchers and policy-makers of this very rapidly expanding field. Brief chapters and colour figures with a contained overall length make the book attractive at an attractive price - a must for every professionalas shelf. Mihail C. Roco, National Science Foundation and National Nanotechnology Initiative, wrote the preface underlying the importance and weight of the present book to this exciting and epoch-awakening field of research and applications: aNanotechnology is well recognized as a science and technology megatrend for the beginning of the 21st century. This book aims to show where nanotechnology is now - transitioning to complex systems and fundamentally new products - and communicates the societal promise of nanotechnology to specialists and the public. Most of what has already made it into the marketplace is in the form of aFirst Generationa products, passive nanostructures with steady behaviour. Many companies have aSecond Generationa products, active nanostructures with changing behaviour during use, and embryonic aThird Generationa products, including 3-dimensional nanosystems. Concepts for aFourth Generationa products, including heterogeneous molecular nanosystems, are only in research.a12.13 Cavity repair: nanocomposites for esthetics, strength and longevity. ... At present, the afillinga of teeth to replace decayed areas uses dental composites that bond directly to dentine or enamel and can be almost invisible to the untrainedanbsp;...
