Authors: Morteza Mahmoudi (Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran), Pieter Stroeve (The University of California at Davis, USA), Abbas S. Milani (The University of British Columbia at Okanagan, Canada), Ali S. Arbab (Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, MI, USA) 
Book Description:
In recent years, the fabrication of nanoparticles and exploration of their properties have attracted the attention of physicists, chemists, biologists and engineers. Interest in nanoparticles arise from the fact that the mechanical, chemical, electrical, optical, magnetic, electro-optical and magneto-optical properties of these particles are different from their bulk properties and depend on the particle size. There are numerous areas where nanoparticulate systems are of scientific and technological interest. This new book reviews research on the various components of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles.
