This is the first comprehensive study of its kind in nanostructured materials, formed by a diversity of synthesis techniques, and with broad applications. Interest in nanostructures has been building up quite a momentum in the various contributing fields, but the scope of this particular work is unique. This report reviews the status of research and development in nanoparticles, nanostructured materials, and nanodevices worldwide, with particular focus on comparisons between the United States and other leading industrialised countries. Topics covered include particle synthesis and assembly, dispersions and coatings of nanoparticles, high surface area materials, functional nanoscale devices, bulk behaviour of nanostructured materials, and biological methods and application. The final chapter examines related government funding programmes around the world. Site reports of visits conducted by the WTEC panel to leading laboratories in Japan and Europe are also given. Audience: This volume will be of interest to researchers from a wide range of disciplines whose work involves materials science, condensed matter physics, chemistry, biological sciences, engineering, and computer and information sciences. It can also be recommended as a text for a graduate course in materials science or solid state physics.
Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc.
