Characterization of Nanocomposites: Technology and Industrial Applications

Frank Abdi, Mohit Garg
April 03, 2017

These days, advanced multiscale hybrid materials are being produced in the industry, studied by universities, and used in several applications. Unlike for macromaterials, it is difficult to obtain the physical, mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties of nanomaterials because of the scale....

Magneto Luminous Chemical Vapor Deposition

Hirotsugu Yasuda
March 29, 2017

The magneto luminous chemical vapor deposition (MLCVD) method is the perfect example of the "front-end green process." It employs an entirely new process that expends the minimum amount of materials in gas phase, yields virtually no effluent, and therefore requires no environmental remediation....

Christian von Borczyskowski, Eduard Zenkevich
October 13, 2016

Nanotechnology is one of the growing areas of this century, also opening new horizons for tuning optical properties. This book introduces basic tuning schemes, including those on a single quantum object level, with an emphasis on surface and interface manipulation of semiconducting and metallic...

Kinetic Theory of Nucleation

Eli Ruckenstein, Gersh Berim
June 22, 2016

Explore a Kinetic Approach to the Description of Nucleation – An Alternative to the Classical Nucleation Theory Kinetic Theory of Nucleation presents an alternative to the classical theory of nucleation in gases and liquids—the kinetic nucleation theory of Ruckenstein–Narsimhan–Nowakowski (RNNT)....

Nanofibers of Conjugated Polymers

A. Sezai Sarac
June 09, 2016

Conjugated polymer composites with high dielectric constants are being developed by the electronics industry in response to the need for power-grounded decoupling to secure the integrity of high-speed signals and to reduce electromagnetic interference. Electrically conducting polymers are materials...
