  • Nanoparticles: Building Blocks for Nanotechnology by Andrew K. Boal (auth.), Vincent Rotello (eds.)

    By Andrew K. Boal (auth.), Vincent Rotello (eds.)

    The integration of top-down lithographic concepts with man made natural and inorganic applied sciences is a key problem for the advance of potent nanosca1e units. by way of meeting, nanoparticles offer a great instrument for bridging the distance among the answer of electron beam lithography (-60 nm) and the molecular point. Nanoparticles own an array of distinctive homes linked to their center fabrics, together with distinct magnetic, photonic and digital habit. This habit should be managed and utilized via monolayer functionalization and meeting concepts, making nanoparticles either scaffolds and construction blocks for nanotechnology. the various buildings and homes of nanoparticles makes them priceless instruments for either primary reviews and pragmatic functions in a number disciplines. This quantity is meant to supply an built-in review of the synthesis and meeting of nanoparticles, and their functions in chemistry, biology, and fabrics technology. the 1st 3 chapters specialize in the production and intrinsic homes of nanoparticles, overlaying the various myriad middle fabrics and shapes which have been created. the rest chapters of the e-book speak about the meeting of nanoparticles, and purposes of either discrete debris and particle assemblies in a variety of fields, together with machine and sensor fabrication, catalysis, biology, and nanosca1e digital and magnetic systems.

  • Nanocrystalline Materials by A I Gusev, A A Rempel

    By A I Gusev, A A Rempel

    In the monograph, the 1st of this kind on this planet, the authors speak about systematically the present nation of investigations into nanocrystalline fabrics. The experimental effects at the impact of the nanocrystalline country at the microstructure and the mechanical, thermophysical, optical, and magnetic houses of metals, alloys and solid-phase compounds are generalised. precise awareness is given to the most tools of construction of remoted nanoparticles, ultrafine powders and dense nanocrystalline fabrics. The dimensional results in remoted nanoparticles and high-density nanocrystalline fabrics are mentioned intimately, and the real function of the interface within the formation of the constitution and homes of dense nanocrystalline fabrics is proven. The modelling concerns, explaining particular good points of the constitution and anomalous houses of gear within the nanocrystalline situation, are analysed.
