Table of Contents

Chapter 1: Introduction

Chapter 2: Phenomenon at the nanoscale

Chapter 3: Conventional nanofabrication methods

Chapter 4: New emerging nanofabrication methods

Chapter 5: Low temperature chemical nanofabrication methods

Chapter 6: Emerging new applications

Chapter 7: Future prospects and challenges


Recent research in the area of nanoscale materials has demonstrated the huge potential benefits and emerging new applications which can be realized when processing functional devices using nanostructures. This book offers a thorough theoretical background to nanoscale fabrication phenomena, as well as covering important practical applications.

There are basically two routes to obtain functional nanostructures. These are, firstly, the conventional top down and, secondly, the new emerging bottom up processing. The latter has proven to be feasible for obtaining device quality material. The bottom up method can either be performed using either high or low temperature processing. Low temperature (˂100 oC) in particular, has becoming increasingly widely used, due to its simplicity and varied applications, with potential huge benefit for developing new devices and flexible non-conventional substrates. This is explored in detail here.

This is an important reference resource for researchers seeking to learn more about fundamental theories related to nanoscale phenomena, and nanofabrication in particular.
