Handbook of Nanophysics: Nanotubes and Nanowires by Klaus D. Sattler

By Klaus D. Sattler

Extensive study on fullerenes, nanoparticles, and quantum dots within the Nineteen Nineties ended in curiosity in nanotubes and nanowires in next years. guide of Nanophysics: Nanotubes and Nanowires makes a speciality of the elemental physics and most recent purposes of those vital nanoscale fabrics and buildings. every one peer-reviewed bankruptcy encompasses a broad-based advent and complements figuring out of the state of the art medical content material via basic equations and illustrations, a few in colour. This quantity first covers key features of carbon nanotubes, together with quantum and electron shipping, isotope engineering, and fluid movement, prior to exploring inorganic nanotubes, similar to spinel oxide nanotubes, magnetic nanotubes, and self-assembled peptide nanostructures. It then makes a speciality of 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 several 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 items; and the transition among classical and quantum habit. Facilitating verbal exchange throughout many disciplines, this landmark ebook encourages scientists with disparate pursuits to collaborate on interdisciplinary initiatives and contain the speculation and method of alternative components into their paintings.

Fractal concepts in condensed matter physics

Concisely and obviously written through most excellent scientists, this booklet offers a self-contained advent to the fundamental recommendations of fractals and demonstrates their use in more than a few issues. The authors’ unified description of other dynamic difficulties makes the e-book super available.

Defects at Oxide Surfaces

This publication provides the fundamentals and characterization of defects at oxide surfaces. It offers a cutting-edge assessment of the sector, containing details to a number of the forms of floor defects, describes analytical the way to examine defects, their chemical job and the catalytic reactivity of oxides.

Mesoscopic Theories of Heat Transport in Nanosystems

This ebook provides generalized heat-conduction legislation which, from a mesoscopic standpoint, are appropriate to new functions (especially in nanoscale warmth move, nanoscale thermoelectric phenomena, and in diffusive-to-ballistic regime) and while stay alongside of the velocity of present microscopic learn.

Introduction to magnetic random-access memory

Magnetic random-access reminiscence (MRAM) is poised to interchange conventional desktop reminiscence in line with complementary metal-oxide semiconductors (CMOS). MRAM will surpass all different kinds of reminiscence units by way of nonvolatility, low strength dissipation, quick switching velocity, radiation hardness, and sturdiness.
