Nanoscale Structure and Assembly at Solid-Fluid Interfaces. by X. Y. Liu

By X. Y. Liu

We all have examine the large capability inherent in nanotechnology and the fascinating impression it has had in altering our way of life within the twenty first century. one of many simple concerns confronting us is the best way to fabricate units or fabrics at the nano scale. what's the simple physics governing the formation of nano levels? How can organic structures encourage us to formulate nano scale architectures, within the manner nature has continually performed and keeps to do? those are major components of concentration during this e-book. the purpose of this reference is to take us to the foundation of those matters: the solid-fluid interfacial constructions and the elemental interactions among structural devices that confirm the kinetics of nano debris and meeting formation, and for that reason the ensuing buildings and functionalities of the nano levels and units. via taking a clean examine the radical nano constitution engineering and floor probing applied sciences from a world point of view of primary ideas, the 2 volumes of this ebook direct our concentration from the macroscopic part to the nano constructions starting from inorganic to bio nano fabrics. that includes contributions from a few foreign specialists within the similar fields, this e-book deals a finished and synergistic investigate those demanding concerns by way of theoretical modeling, laptop simulations, complex floor probing and fabrication and interface characterizations. The publication additionally presents a hyperlink to the nanostructure engineering of a few novel fabrics enjoying an enormous function in advancing applied sciences during this box. quantity I specializes in either the theoretical and experimental facets of crystal surfaces and solid-fluid interfacial buildings, the influence of ordering and disordering of the interfacial molecules at the kinetics of crystalline subject, and particularly at the nano crystalline part and the formation of self-organized nanofiber networks. Expertly written chapters extend the present wisdom on surface/interfacial buildings linked to bulk levels to the micro/nano structural area, providing examples of the characterization and manipulation of self-organized nano buildings. the subject material covers additionally the rules and applied sciences bearing on nano stages, surface/interface constitution formation and characterization, and fabrication. quantity II is dedicated to the meeting of bio-related nano buildings and hybrid nano fabrics and platforms. The half on bio-related nanostructures makes a speciality of the aggregation and trend formation of protein molecules, or biomaterials within the bulk and at the floor of specified substrates. find out how to regulate the method of biomineralization, organic matrices, hierarchical buildings and different bio-related fabrics through counting on strong tools, corresponding to templating, AFM, Chemoselective Ligation, scanning probe nanolithography can be taken care of intimately. moreover, leading edge thoughts to engineer advanced nano buildings reminiscent of molecular layout and molecular self meeting are highlighted.

Metallic Micro and Nano Materials: Fabrication with Atomic by Masumi Saka (auth.), Masumi Saka (eds.)

By Masumi Saka (auth.), Masumi Saka (eds.)

This ebook specializes in the steel Nano- and Micro-materials (NMMs) fabricated through actual thoughts corresponding to atomic diffusion. a brand new know-how for fabricating NMMs through atomic diffusion is gifted. varieties of atomic diffusion are taken care of; one is a phenomenon because of electron stream in excessive density and referred to as electromigration and the opposite is pressure migration which relies on a gradient of hydrostatic tension in a fabric. In 3 components, the ebook describes the speculation of atomic diffusion, the assessment of actual homes and the therapy and purposes of metal NMMs. the recent equipment reminiscent of atomic diffusion are anticipated are anticipated to be the most important for the fabrication of NMMs sooner or later and to partly exchange tools in line with chemical reactions.

Nanoscale Fluid Transport: From Molecular Signatures to by Tuan Anh Ho

By Tuan Anh Ho

This thesis demonstrates how molecular modeling recommendations can be utilized to realize major insights into a variety of purposes which are more and more attracting learn curiosity due to their societal value. It provides cutting edge rules that, via changing the elemental actual phenomena happening on the solid/liquid interface, enable the fluid shipping in nanochannels to be manipulated with a view to enhance the functionality of the sensible functions. The functions explicitly thought of during this thesis are the layout of drag-reducing and self-cleaning surfaces; water desalination; and shale gasoline exploration – all of that are, to some degree, ruled through nanoscale fluid delivery. total, this thesis comes in handy for college students and researchers coming into the sector who desire to know the way molecular modeling can enhance the functionality in quite a lot of purposes.

Carbon Nanotubes by M. Endo, S. Iijima, M.S. Dresselhaus

By M. Endo, S. Iijima, M.S. Dresselhaus

Carbon nanotubes were studied broadly with regards to fullerenes, and including fullerenes have opened a brand new technology and know-how box on nano scale fabrics. an entire diversity of matters from the training, constitution, homes and statement of quantum results in carbon nanotubes compared to 0-D fullerenes are mentioned. moreover, complementary experiences on carbon nanoparticles akin to carbon nano-capsules, onion-like graphite debris and metal-coated fullerenes are coated. This booklet goals to hide contemporary examine and improvement during this quarter, and so offer a handy reference software for all researchers during this box. it's also was hoping that this publication can serve to stimulate destiny paintings on carbon nanotubes.
