Silver nanoparticles have unique optical, electrical and biological properties that have attracted significant attention due to their potential use in many applications, such as catalysis, biosensing, drug delivery and nanodevice fabrication. This book highlights scientific advancements and recent applications of silver nanoparticles nanotechnology with a key focus on nanocomposite coatings and advanced characterization techniques. "Silver nanoparticles" is a collection of seventeen chapters written by experts in their respective fields. These reviews are representative of the current research areas in silver nanoparticle nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Micro and Nano: No Small Matter. Science at the nano- and microscale is currently receiving enormous wordwide interest. Small provides the very best forum for experimental and theoretical studies of fundamental and applied interdisciplinary research at these dimension.
Smart Materials and Structures is a multi-disciplinary journal dedicated to technical advances in (and applications of) smart materials, systems and structures; including intelligent systems, sensing and actuation, adaptive structures, and active control.
Unlike many journals which focus primarily on individual classes of materials or particular applications, Soft Materials draw on all physical, chemical, materials science, and biological aspects of soft matter. Featured topics include polymers, biomacromolecules, colloids, membranes, Langmuir-Blodgett films, liquid crystals, granular matter, soft interfaces, complex fluids, surfactants, gels, nanomaterials, self-organization, supramolecular science, molecular recognition, soft glasses, amphiphiles, and foams.
This journal covers fundamental and applied research in the field of soft nanoscience, which includes polymers and colloids. This will necessarily address nanostructured polymers (e.g. block copolymers), nanocomposites, physical gels, microemulsions, surface/interface modification, new processes (e.g. electrospinning/spraying), confinement effects, the organic/biological interface, and responsive/functional polymers. Results may be experimental, theoretical or simulation in nature.
Spin electronics is a rapidly emerging field which is based on taking advantage of the unique properties of the spin of the electron, the nucleus and other fundamental particles, as well as that of the photon. Spin electronics has special importance as conventional electronics reaches its physical limitations. SPIN aims to provide a forum for the presentation of research and review articles of interest to all researchers in the field.
Superlattices and Microstructures is a journal devoted to the dissemination of the science and technology of synthetic heterostructures, including individual and collective use of semiconductors, metals and insulators for the exploitation of their unique properties.
Swiss Nano-Cube is the national knowledge and education platform in Switzerland for micro and nanotechnology. It adresses teachers and students from vocational schools, secondary schools as well as higher professional schools.
This journal is devoted to the rapid dissemination of original research papers of relevance to inorganic and metal-organic chemists and nano-scientists engaged in synthesis and characterization of Inorganic, Main Group, Metal-Organic and Nano-Particulate Constructs.
This wikibook on nanoscience and nanotechnology gathers information about the various tools, methods and systems to provide students, researchers and everyone else an open-source handbook and overview guide to this vast interdisciplinary and expanding field - a book that can be adjusted as new things appear and improved by you!
Ultramicroscopy is an established journal that provides a forum for the publication of original research papers, invited reviews and rapid communications. The scope of Ultramicroscopy is to describe advances in instrumentation, methods and theory related to all modes of microscopical imaging, diffraction and spectroscopy in the life and physical sciences.
Bridging the gap between fundamental materials discovery and advances in technology, the journal has a particular focus on the novel functionalities of materials. The journal covers fabrication techniques, unique characteristics of new materials, nanomaterials, composites, metamaterials, magnetic and photonic materials, porous materials, biomaterials, energy materials, photovoltaics, organic electronics, and unusual mechanic properties.
