Professor Kosal publishes book on Nanotechnology
Professor Kosal publishes book on Nanotechnology, "Nanotechnology for Chemical and Biological Defense". The target audience for this book is Researchers, university teachers, professionals, first responders, policy makers.
The pursuit of the minutely small - nanotechnology - is thriving in academia, in the private sector, and in global state science and technology programs. This work aims to better enable an informed national debate and to affect international dialogue on the role and impact of nanotechnology and emerging science on national defense and homeland security. Combining original research with the findings of an interdisciplinary, defense-oriented workshop, the book explores the current realities and potential for transformational breakthroughs in nanotechnology-based chemical and biological countermeasures, as well as identifies research directions in basic and applied science. Security implications, both for traditional nonproliferation regimes and for misuse by non-state actors are also considered.
