By M. Meyyappan

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

Presenting crucial details on either renowned and rising kinds, 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 know-how, and Sunkara is additionally a major contributor to nanowire literature. Their state-of-the-art paintings is the foundation for a lot of the present knowing within the sector of nanowires, and this e-book bargains an in-depth evaluation of varied different types of nanowires, together with semiconducting, metal, and oxide kinds. additionally it is broad assurance of functions that use INWs and people with nice strength in electronics, optoelectronics, box emission, thermoelectric units, and sensors.

This beneficial reference:

  • Traces the evolution of nanotechnology and classifies nanomaterials
  • Describes nanowires and their strength functions to demonstrate connectivity and continuity
  • Discusses development thoughts, at either laboratory and advertisement scales
  • Evaluates an important points of classical thermodynamics linked to the nucleation and development of nanowires
  • Details the improvement of silicon, germanium, gallium arsenide, and different fabrics within the type of nanowires utilized in electronics applications
  • Explores the actual, digital and different homes of nanowires

The explosion of nanotechnology study actions for numerous functions is due largely to the advances within the development of nanowires. persisted improvement of novel nanostructured fabrics is key to the luck of such a lot of fiscal sectors, starting from computing and communications to transportation and drugs. This quantity discusses how and why nanowires are excellent applicants to interchange bulk and skinny movie fabrics. It covers the rules in the back of gadget operation after which provides a close review of nanowire fabrication, functionality effects, and destiny clients and demanding situations, making this publication a worthwhile source for scientists and engineers in precisely 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
