Nanotechnology is set to have a profound impact on telecommunications leading to easier convergence of related technologies, massive storage data, compact storage devices, and higher performance computing. Nanotechnology for Telecommunications covers research and developmental issues as well as future directions of MEMs and nanotechnology as they apply to telecommunications. It discusses the impact of nanotechnology on devices such as photonic crystals lasers, light emitters, and sensors. The authors also include a discussion on the challenges associated with the system integration of nano-, micro- and micro-components in component-, modules, and telecommunication networks.
