World Scientific author Professor Supriyo Datta has been elected into the National Academy of Engineering.
Professor Datta, whose field is in microelectronic and nanoelectronic devices, was elected into the National Academy for his work on quantum transport modeling in nanoscale electronic devices. He is among 66 new members elected this year.
Among other recent elections of World Scientific's nanoscience authors into the National Academy of Engineering are two editors, Professors Mark Lundstrom who was elected in 2009 and John Rogers, who was also elected in 2011 and is one of the Academy's youngest members. Rogers was also voted by Nature magazine as one of the top 10 people who made a difference in 2011. Noting the prestige of their achievements, Mr Max Phua, Executive Director of World Scientific Publishing, said, "It is great to see our nanoscience authors Professors Datta and Rogers among the ranks of renowned scientists of the prestigious Academy. It is an honour and privilege to publish with them."
Professor Datta's forthcoming book Lessons from Nanoelectronics: A New Perspective on Transport is part of the lecture note series "Lessons from Nanoscience" of which Professor Lundstrom is the chief editor, and is due to be published this Summer. It will retail for US$36 for the paperback and US$75 for the hardcover.

About Lessons From Nanoscience: A Lecture Note Series
Nanoscience is a fast-moving field with strong potential for developing important, new technologies. Numerous review articles and even textbooks are beginning to appear. This series is intended, however, to address a very different need, namely the need to develop conceptual frameworks that can help unify the diverse phenomena being discovered. Such frameworks may not yet be in final form but this series will provide a forum for them to evolve and develop into the textbooks of tomorrow that train our students and guide young researchers as they turn nanoscience into nanotechnology. The focus of the series is on electronics, but volumes in areas of nanoscience and technology broadly related to electronics will be also be considered, as long as they are driven by a quest for unifying principles that embed a diversity of phenomena or techniques. Its Chief Editor is Professor Mark Lundstrom from Purdue University. More information on the series can be found at http://www.worldscibooks.com/series/lnlns_series.shtml.
