Multiscale Modeling: From Atoms to Devices

Pedro Derosa, Tahir Cagin
September 12, 2017

While the relevant features and properties of nanosystems necessarily depend on nanoscopic details, their performance resides in the macroscopic world. To rationally develop and accurately predict performance of these systems we must tackle problems where multiple length and time scales are coupled...

Growing Graphene on Semiconductors

Nunzio Motta, Francesca Iacopi, Camilla Coletti
September 05, 2017

Graphene, the wonder material of the 21st century, is expected to play an important role in future nanoelectronic applications, but the only way to achieve this goal is to grow graphene directly on a semiconductor, integrating it in the chain for the production of electronic circuits and devices....

Handbook of Granular Materials

Scott V. Franklin, Mark D. Shattuck
September 01, 2017

Granular systems arise in a variety of geological and industrial settings, from landslides, avalanches, and erosion to agricultural grains and pharmaceutical powders. Understanding the underlying physics that governs their behavior is the key to developing effective handling and transport...

Handbook of Nanophysics: Clusters and Fullerenes

Klaus D. Sattler
August 30, 2017

The field of nanoscience was pioneered in the 1980s with the groundbreaking research on clusters, which later led to the discovery of fullerenes. Handbook of Nanophysics: Clusters and Fullerenes focuses on the fundamental physics of these nanoscale materials and structures. Each peer-reviewed...
