By M. Meyyappan

Advances in nanofabrication, characterization instruments, and the force to commercialize nanotechnology items have contributed to the numerous bring up in learn on inorganic nanowires (INWs). but few if any books give you the valuable complete and coherent account of this crucial evolution.

Presenting crucial info on either well known and rising types, Inorganic Nanowires: purposes, houses, and Characterization addresses the expansion, characterization, and houses of nanowires. writer Meyyappan is the director and senior scientist at Ames middle for Nanotechnology and a popular chief in nanoscience and expertise, and Sunkara can be a major contributor to nanowire literature. Their state of the art paintings is the root for a lot of the present knowing within the quarter of nanowires, and this booklet deals an in-depth evaluation of varied varieties of nanowires, together with semiconducting, metal, and oxide forms. it is also large insurance of purposes that use INWs and people with nice power in electronics, optoelectronics, box emission, thermoelectric units, and sensors.

This valuable reference:

  • Traces the evolution of nanotechnology and classifies nanomaterials
  • Describes nanowires and their strength purposes to demonstrate connectivity and continuity
  • Discusses development innovations, at either laboratory and advertisement scales
  • Evaluates crucial facets of classical thermodynamics linked to the nucleation and development of nanowires
  • Details the advance of silicon, germanium, gallium arsenide, and different fabrics within the type of nanowires utilized in electronics applications
  • Explores the actual, digital and different houses of nanowires

The explosion of nanotechnology examine actions for numerous functions is due largely to the advances within the development of nanowires. persevered improvement of novel nanostructured fabrics is vital to the luck of such a lot of financial sectors, starting from computing and communications to transportation and medication. This quantity discusses how and why nanowires are perfect applicants to exchange bulk and skinny movie fabrics. It covers the rules at the back of equipment operation after which provides a close evaluate of nanowire fabrication, functionality effects, and destiny clients and demanding situations, making this publication a necessary source for scientists and engineers in exactly approximately any field.

Co-author Meyya Meyyappan will obtain the Pioneer Award in Nanotechnology from the IEEE Nanotechnology Council on the IEEE Nano convention in Portland, Oregon in August, 2011
