Raman Spectroscopy, Fullerenes and
Nanotechnology, a book by alumnus Maher Amer (Ph.D. 1995), has been selected as a
"Book of Choice" by the journal
Amer's book provides an overview "of nanotechnology as the
science controlled by the behaviour of thermodynamic small systems.
It provides comprehensive discussions on fullerenes as building
blocks, Raman spectroscopy as a powerful diagnostic tool, and
nanotechnology as the technology bridging the gap between
human-made and biological materials systems."
Professor Amer is Professor of Materials Science and Engineering
in the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at Wright State
