Nanotubes and Nanowires (Handbook of Nanophysics)

Klaus D. Sattler


extensive learn on fullerenes, nanoparticles, and quantum dots within the Nineteen Nineties resulted in curiosity in nanotubes and nanowires in next years. guide of Nanophysics: Nanotubes and Nanowires makes a speciality of the elemental physics and most up-to-date purposes of those very important nanoscale fabrics and buildings. each one peer-reviewed bankruptcy includes a broad-based advent and complements knowing of the cutting-edge medical content material via basic equations and illustrations, a few in color.

This quantity first covers key points of carbon nanotubes, together with quantum and electron shipping, isotope engineering, and fluid move, earlier than exploring inorganic nanotubes, similar to spinel oxide nanotubes, magnetic nanotubes, and self-assembled peptide nanostructures. It then specializes in germanium, gallium nitride, gold, polymer, and natural nanowires and their homes. The publication additionally discusses nanowire arrays, nanorods, atomic wires, monatomic chains, ultrathin gold nanowires, and a number of other nanorings, together with superconducting, ferromagnetic, and quantum dot nanorings.

Nanophysics brings jointly a number of disciplines to figure out the structural, digital, optical, and thermal habit of nanomaterials; electric and thermal conductivity; the forces among nanoscale gadgets; and the transition among classical and quantum habit. Facilitating conversation throughout many disciplines, this landmark ebook encourages scientists with disparate pursuits to collaborate on interdisciplinary tasks and comprise the idea and technique of alternative components into their paintings.
