  • Summary

    The development of nanostructured materials represents a new and fast evolving application of recent research in physics and chemistry. Novel experimental tools coupled with new theory have made this possible. Topics covered in this book include nanocrystals, semiconductor heterostructures, nanotubes, nanowires, and manipulation and fabrication techniques. The core of the book consists of ten lectures by five distinguished researchers, Paul Alivisatos, D.D. Awschalom, Sumio Iijima, Charles Lieber and Phaedon Avouris, presented at an Advanced Study Institute in Hong Kong in January 1999. It should interest materials physicists and chemists as well as materials scientists with an interest in the growth and characterisation of sophisticated materials.
