Nanomaterials and Devices book cover

Nanomaterials and Devices

Introducing the fields of nanomaterials and devices, and their applications across a wide range of academic disciplines and industry sectors, Donglu Shi takes an approach that provides a bridge between the knowledge acquisition and practical work, providing a starting point for the research and development of applications.

The major areas covered in this book are:

  • The characterization of nanomaterials, their preparation methods and performance testing techniques
  • The design and development of nano-scale devices
  • The applications of nanomaterials, with examples taken from different industry sectors, such as lighting, energy, bioengineering and medicine / medical devices.

Key nanomaterial types are covered, such as carbon nanotubes, nanobiomaterials, nano-magnetic materials, semiconductor materials and nanocomposites. Shi also provides detailed coverage of key emerging technologies such as DNA nanotechnology and spintronics.

This resulting text is equally relevant for advanced students (senior and graduate) and for engineers and scientists from a variety of different academic backgrounds working in the multi-disciplinary field of nanotechnology.
