Nanomaterials are being incorporated into products all around us, having an incredible impact on durability, strength, functionality, and other material properties. There are a vast number of nanomaterials presently available, and new formulations and chemistries are being announced daily.

Nanomaterials: A Guide to Fabrication and Applications provides product developers, researchers, and materials scientists with a handy resource for understanding the range of options and materials currently available. Covering a variety of nanomaterials and their applications, this practical reference:

  • Discusses the scale of nanomaterials and nanomachines, focusing on integrated circuits (ICs) and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)
  • Offers insight into different nanomaterials’ interactions with chemical reactions, biological processes, and the environment
  • Examines the mechanical properties of nanomaterials and potential treatments to enhance the nanomaterials’ performance
  • Details recent accomplishments in the use of nanomaterials to create new forms of electronic devices
  • Explores the optical properties of certain nanomaterials and the nanomaterials’ use in optimizing lasers and optical absorbers
  • Describes an energy storage application as well as how nanomaterials from waste products may be used to improve capacitors

Featuring contributions from experts around the globe, Nanomaterials: A Guide to Fabrication and Applications serves as a springboard for the discovery of new applications of nanomaterials.


"This book would be useful to those working in the development of nanomaterials, with a specific interest in one or more of the applications described, or for learning about nanomaterial properties in the subject areas presented."
