Description

Design, Fabrication, and Characterization of Multifunctional Nanomaterials covers the major techniques for the design, synthesis, and development of multifunctional nanomaterials. The book highlights the main characterization techniques, including, X-ray Diffraction, Scanning Electron Microscopy, High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy, Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy, and Scanning Probe Microscopy Techniques. In addition, it explores functional studies, including Z-scan technique for non-linear optics, dielectric studies, magneto-electric coupling analysis to study coupling between magnetic and ferroelectric phases, and ferroelectric hysteresis loop tracer to probe the polarization effects in multiferroic systems.

Additional sections discuss Vibration Sample Magnetometry, Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (SQUID) Interferometry for temperature dependent magnetic measurements, low temperature Raman spectroscopy to probe functional group analysis, Mossbauer Spectroscopy to investigate superparamagnetic doublets, Positron Annihilation Spectroscopy to probe defects in materials and Neutron diffraction to explore the minor defects, and much more.

This is an important reference source for materials scientists and engineers who are looking to increase their understanding of design and fabrication techniques for a range of multifunctional nanomaterials.
