A entire landscape of self-healing strategies, Self-Healing on the Nanoscale: Mechanisms and Key strategies of common and synthetic Systems specializes in the advance of latest nanoscale self-healing platforms, from normal thoughts to actual chemical mechanisms. With a distinct emphasis on key options, innovations, and mechanisms on the atomic, molecular, and nanometric scales, this booklet is made from 3 parts:
- Natural Self-Healing Systems covers paradigmatic self-repair structures built by means of nature in residing organisms
- Artificial Self-Healing Systems describes quite a few fabrics whose buildings were engineered on the micro- or nanoscale to acquire self-repair ability
- Frontiers of Self-Healing Systems contains contributions on platforms studied in recent times that experience proven power for constructing or inspiring new self-healing nanomaterials
The improvement of self-healing platforms, in particular bearing on fabrics and the nanoscale, is a nascent but attractive subject for scientists in fields starting from engineering to biology. Self-Healing on the Nanoscale offers a large view of the suggestions, mechanisms, and kinds of self-healing structures on the nanoscale, forming a consultant to the sphere and encouraging the improvement of self-healing structures for the future.

Un demi-siècle plus tard, le nanomonde est devenu familier à des milliers de concepteurs, d'industriels ou d'utilisateurs ; depuis les microprocesseurs jusqu'aux assemblages moléculaires, le champs des nanomachines et de ses functions potentielles semble infini… jusqu'à paraître dépasser les lois de l. a. physique.
Pour appréhender ce potentiel fantastique, qui alimente aussi bien les projets des industriels que les scénarios des auteurs de sciencefiction, Louis Laurent nous convie tout d'abord à un voyage vers l'infiniment petit, où s'exercent forces et lois d'échelle qui bouleversent notre conception d'un environnement de taille humaine ; ce préambule essentiel expliquant les comportements de l. a. matière permettra au lecteur de comprendre les propriétés du nanomonde, et, par delà, celles des nanomachines. Celles-ci sont ensuite présentées, qu'elles soient artificielles (créées par l'homme) ou naturelles (assemblées à partir du vivant) : méthodes de fabrication, règles d'assemblage. Enfin, constatant que nous sommes aujourd'hui au carrefour des univers bio et nanotechnologiques, l'auteur nous conviera à une réflexion potential sur l'avenir de ce monde infiniment petit.
