Описание: This up-to-date review of the most important areas where surface analysis techniques are employed covers recent developments in traditional fields, as well as such newly emerged important subfields as biomaterials and metrology. The handbook is proble
Описание: "Characterization of Semiconductor Heterostructures and Nanostructures" is structured in chapters, each one devoted to a specific characterization technique
used in the understanding of the properties (structural, physical, chemical, electrical etc..) of semiconductor quantum wells and superlattices. A chapter is devoted to the ab initio
modeling. The book has basically a double aim.
The first one lies on the educational ground. The book provides the basic concept of each of the selected techniques with an
approach understandable by master and PhD students in Physics, Chemistry, Material Science, Engineering, Nanotechnology. The second aim is to provide a selected set of examples
from the recent literature of the TOP results obtained with the specific technique in understanding the properties of semiconductor heterostructures and nanostructures.
chapter has this double structure: a first part devoted to explain the basic concepts, providing the larger possible audience, and a second one to the discussion of the most peculiar and
innovative examples, allowing the book to have the longer possible life time. Of course, the book is devoted to the specialized subset of scientists working in the fields of design,
growth, characterization, testing of heterostructures-based devices in both academic and industrial laboratories. But the final goal is somewhat more ambitious, and in this regard the
topic of quantum wells, wires and dots should be seen as a pretext of applying top level characterization techniques in understanding the structural, electronic etc.
of matter at the nanometer (even sub-nanometer) scale. In this way it is aimed to become a reference book in the much broader, and extremely hot, field of Nanotechnology. The book
features a comprehensive collection of the most powerful characterization techniques for semiconductors heterostructures and nano
Most of the chapters are authored by scientists that are world wide among the top-ten in publication ranking of the specific field. Each chapter starts with a didactic
introduction on the technique. The second part of each chapters deals with a selection of top examples highlighting the power of the specific technique to analyse the properties of
semiconductors heterostructures and nanostructures.
Описание: Ordered porous nanostructures have emerged in the last ten years in different kinds of materials and with different pore diameters and interpore spacing. This book reviews in the first part which kinds of materials exhibit ordered nanopores and what are the physico-chemical reasons for it. In the second part, this book discusses the possible applications from photonic crystals via high-throughput screening to metallic and polymer-nanowire arrays and their use in the case of ferromagnetic wires as high-density magnetic storage medium.This book reviews the most interesting materials on the market concerning self-ordering, including: macroporous silicon, porous alumina, MCM41 and photonic bandgap materials, which is one of the hottest topics in optics and nano-technology in the last five years, according to Science magazine. In computer applications, these structures enable significantly higher storage densities than are possible with thin film media. Moreover, these structures find uses in template fabrication for nanowire-arrays, high-throughput screening, lab-on-a-chip, ULSI circuitry for trenches and capacitors.
Описание: This handbook and ready reference introduces the concept, explaining how the coatings are characterized and discussing their mechanical and corrosion properties. Also includes specific industrial applications.
Описание: The main theme of this book is the exploration the underlying physical laws that permit the fabrication of nanometer-scale structures. As researchers attempt to fabricate nanometer-scale structures which do not exist per se, they must still employ the natural laws to fabricate them through processes such as self-assembly. This book will find service both as a reference work for researchers and as a comprehensive didactical text for graduate students.
Описание: `Nanostructures, Thin Films and Bulk Oxides - Synthesis, Characterization and Applications` and `Solution Synthesis of Inorganic Functional Materials` Symposia were held at the 2014 MRS Spring Meeting.
Описание: Reviews the latest research breakthroughs and applications Since the discovery of carbon nanotubes in 1991, one-dimensional nanostructures have been at the forefront of nanotechnology research, promising to provide the building blocks for a new generation of nanoscale electronic and optoelectronic devices.
Описание: This book will discuss advances in the area of functional thin films for sensors and novel concepts for future breakthroughs. The focus will be on guidelines and design rules for sensor systems, interaction between functional thin films and other sensor subsystems, fundamentals behind the intrinsic functionality in sensing thin films and nanostructures, state-of-the-art technologies used to develop sensors today and concrete examples of sensor designs.Coverage of nanoscale thin films for sensors includes the following important topics: Fundamental physics of functional thin films and nanostructures; Synthesis processes of functional thin films; Integration of functional thin films; Applications of functional thin films in sensing.
Описание: This comprehensive reference for young researchers and professionals offers an advanced treatment that extends beyond an introductory work. It covers the inorganic nanostructures in the breadth needed, presenting them with the surface science tools used to characterize them.
