    This book covers various facets of nanomaterials and their applications including low-dimensional materials along with discussions on in vitro cell imaging, bioanalyses, UV laser applications of scheelite-type nanomaterials, and nanosized cyanobridged metal-organic frameworks, including high spin transition metal ions. It explains transition metal dichalcogenides and magnetic tunnel junction devices as an alternative to complementary metal-oxide semiconductors. One of the main aims of this book is to grow interest in the atomistic simulation process and characterization of these nanoscale devices.

    • Details the recent advances in the application of nanomaterials for nanoelectronics devices, sensors, and memories
    • Describes the first-principles approach to ultrasensitive electrically doped biosensors
    • Discusses the application of nanomaterials in spintronic devices, specifically magnetic tunnel junction devices with new architectures
    • Covers nanomaterials in water purification and conducting polymer nanocomposites in electrochemical supercapacitors
    • Presents the theoretical background of next-generation MRI contrast agents with nanosized cyanobridged metal-organic frameworks including high spin transition metal ions

    This book is aimed at researchers and graduate students of materials engineering and nanoelectronics.
