Emerging Nanotechnologies for Manufacturing
Nanotechnologies are maturing, leading to an ever increasing range of commercial applications and rapidly growing nanotechnology markets.
In this important work, an unrivalled team of international experts provides an exploration of existing and emerging nanotechnologies as they bring an early transformation in large-scale manufacturing contexts in key sectors such as medicine, advanced materials, energy, and electronics. From their different perspectives, the contributors explore technologies and techniques as well as applications and how they transform those sectors. Key topics covered include:
â¢ Characterization of nanostructures
â¢ Micro- and nanomachining
â¢ Self-assembly techniques
â¢ New applications of carbon nanotubes
â¢ Environmental and health impacts
By updating chapters and expanding coverage the new edition of Emerging Nanotechnologies for Manufacturing reflects the latest developments in nanotechnologies for manufacturing and covers additional nanotechnologies applied in the medical fields such as drug delivery systems. Furthermore, chapters on graphene and smart precursors for novel nanomaterials are added.
This book provides an important and in-depth guide to the applications and impact of nanotechnology to different manufacturing sectors. As such, it will find a broad readership, from R&D scientists and engineers to venture capitalists.
Engineers, scientists and technical managers working in manufacturing contexts in sectors such as medicine, electronics, advanced materials, energy, and agriculture.
