Description

Nanofabrication and Applications for Smart Nanosensors addresses the design, manufacture and applications of a variety of nanomaterials classics for sensing applications. In particular, the book explores how nanofabrication techniques are being used to create more efficient nanosensors, and examines their major applications in biomedicine and environmental science.

The book discusses the fundamentals of how nanosensors work, before going on to explain how such sensors can be designed using a variety of different nanomaterial types. The book then moves on to discuss different nanofabrication techniques, exploring when different technique should be applied, and also outlining toxicity and safety issues relating to the creation of nanosensors using certain nanomaterial classes. The book also outlines the major challenges to applying different nanofabrication techniques to certain nanomaterials classes for sensing.

This book is an important resource for materials scientists and engineers wanting to make materials selection decisions for the creation of new nansensor devices.

Key Features

  • Summarizes current research and applications of a variety nanofabrication techniques for the creation of efficient sensing devices
  • Provides readers with an understanding of surfaces and interfaces, a key challenge for those working on hybrid nanomaterials, carbon nanotubes, graphene, polymers, liquid crystal electro-optical imaging, where the analysis of spectroscopy and electron microscopy responses are vital
  • Discusses the variability and sight recognition of biopolymers, such as DNA molecules, which offer a wide range of opportunities for the self-organization of nanostructures into much more complex patterns
