Carbon Nanomaterials (Advanced Materials and Technologies) by Yury Gogotsi,Volker Presser

By Yury Gogotsi,Volker Presser

First Self-Contained resource fullyyt devoted to Nanocarbons

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) allure a great deal of awareness for his or her digital, mechanical, optical, and chemical features. yet nanostructured carbons are usually not restricted to nanotubes and fullerenes—they additionally exist as nano-diamonds, fibers, cones, scrolls, whiskers, and graphite polyhedral crystals. whereas very good papers and articles exist scattered throughout numerous journals, a finished, unmarried quantity concentrated easily on carbon-based nanostructures was once unavailable, formerly.

Featuring the contributions of remarkable leaders within the box, Carbon Nanomaterials brings jointly the main updated examine findings at the exact houses, useful synthesis, and genuine purposes for all sorts of carbon-related nanomaterials. The authors emphasize the significance of nanotexture and floor chemistry in numerous amendment tools used to customise houses for a variety of functions. in addition they draw recognition to demanding situations that needs to be addressed ahead of they're absolutely built-in into the following iteration of technology and engineering functions. the ultimate bankruptcy is devoted to reading the well timed software of carbon nanotubes as a composite fabric for sunlight cells and electric hydrogen garage.  

Carbon Nanomaterials offers a huge survey of various carbon-based nanomaterials within the context of commercially on hand nanomaterials in addition to rising applied sciences and destiny purposes within the fields of molecular electronics, sensoring, nano- and micro electromechanic units, field-emission monitors, power garage, and composite materials.

Nanostructured Coatings (Nanostructure Science and Technology)

This e-book grants sensible perception right into a large diversity of fields concerning challenging coatings, from their deposition and characterization as much as the hardening and deformation mechanisms permitting the translation of effects. The textual content examines relationships among structure/microstructure and mechanical homes from primary ideas, via kinds of coatings, to characterization thoughts.

Nano-Oncology, the Turning Point: Discover the Wave of Knowledge that Makes Fighting Cancer with Nanotechnology Real (nanowiki ebook series 4)

"Far from the general public notion that nanotechnology and nanomedicine are nonetheless trending themes of technology fiction"· An creation to the Nano-Oncology, the main Promising and up to date Contribution to struggle melanoma· The cutting-edge of this New Paradigm, the melanoma NanomedicineCancer is a number one reason for disease-related mortality, and with the expanding lifespan, it truly is envisioned to be the reason for 50% of deaths within the 1st global inhabitants.

Nuclear Radiation Nanosensors and Nanosensory Systems (NATO Science for Peace and Security Series B: Physics and Biophysics)

This number of chosen assessment papers specializes in subject matters resembling electronic radiation sensors and nanosensory platforms for nanotechnology applications and built-in X-ray/PET/CT detectors; nanophosphors and nanocrystal quantum dots as X-ray radiation sensors; the luminescence potency of CdSe/ZnS QD and UV-induced luminescence potency distribution; investigations dedicated to the quantum and multi-parametrical nature of mess ups and the modeling thereof utilizing quantum seek and quantum question algorithms; sum-frequency-generation, IR fourier and raman spectroscopy equipment; in addition to investigations into the vibrational modes of viruses and different pathogenic microorganisms aimed toward developing optical biosensory structures.

Ultrasonic Spectroscopy: Applications in Condensed Matter Physics and Materials Science

Ultrasonic spectroscopy is a method widespread in solid-state physics, fabrics technological know-how, and geology that makes use of acoustic waves to figure out basic actual houses of fabrics, resembling their elasticity and mechanical strength dissipation. This e-book offers whole assurance of the most matters proper to the layout, research, and interpretation of ultrasonic experiments.
