Defects in Nanocrystals: Structural and Physico-Chemical Aspects discusses the nature of “small” semiconductor systems and the effect of the size and shape on their thermodynamic and optoelectronic properties at the mesoscopic and nanoscopic level. The nanostructures considered in this book are individual nanometric crystallites, nanocrystalline films, and nanowires of which the thermodynamic, structural, and optical properties are discussed in detail. The work:

  • Outlines the influence of growth processes on their morphology and structure

• Describes the benefits of optical spectroscopies in the understanding of the role and nature of defects in nanostructured semiconductors

• Considers the limits of nanothermodynamics

• Details the critical role of interfaces in nanostructural behavior

• Covers the importance of embedding media on the physico-chemical properties of nanostructured semiconductors

• Explains the negligible role of core point defects vs. surface and interface defects

Written for researchers, engineers, and those working in the physical and physicochemical sciences, this work comprehensively details the chemical, structural, optical properties of semiconductor nanostructures for development of more powerful and efficient devices.
