About the Book

This book examines in detail the physical properties and device applications of semiconductor nanocrystals and metal nanoparticles. It begins with a comprehensive review of the synthesis and characterization of various semiconductor nanocrystals and metal nanoparticles and goes on to discuss in detail their optical, light emission, and electrical properties. Additionally, it illustrates many exciting applications in nanoelectronic devices (new generation of memories, single-electron devices), optoelectronic devices (silicon light emitters, solar cells), and photonic devices (sub-wavelength waveguides).
