The journal is characterized by the rapid reporting of reviews, original research, and application studies across all sectors, including engineering, optics, bio-medicine, cosmetics, textiles, resource sustainability and science. Applied research into nano-materials, particles, nano-structures and fabrication, diagnostics and analytics, drug delivery and toxicology constitute the primary direction of the journal.
Nanotube Therapy is focused on the chemistry, biology, and engineering involved in the application of nanotube technology for the improvement of human health. Material properties, novel devices, in vitro, in vivo, and clinical studies are all within the scope of the journal.
This volume is intended to orient the reader in the fast developing field of semiconductor nanowires, by providing a series of self-contained monographs focusing on various nanowire-related topics. Each monograph serves as a short review of previous results in the literature and description of methods used in the field, as well as a summary of the authors recent achievements on the subject. Each report provides a brief sketch of the historical background behind, the physical and/or chemical principles underlying a specific nanowire fabrication/characterization technique, or the experimental/theoretical methods used to study a given nanowire property or device.
Understanding and building up the foundation of nanowire concept is a high requirement and a bridge to new technologies. Any attempt in such direction is considered as one step forward in the challenge of advanced nanotechnology. In the last few years, InTech scientific publisher has been taking the initiative of helping worldwide scientists to share and improve the methods and the nanowire technology. This book is one of InTech?s attempts to contribute to the promotion of this technology.
This potentially unique work offers various approaches on the implementation of nanowires. As it is widely known, nanotechnology presents the control of matter at the nanoscale and nanodimensions within few nanometers, whereas this exclusive phenomenon enables us to determine novel applications. This book presents an overview of recent and current nanowire application and implementation research worldwide. We examine methods of nanowire synthesis, types of materials used, and applications associated with nanowire research. Wide surveys of global activities in nanowire research are presented, as well.
This book describes some nanowires fabrication and their potential applications, both as standing alone or complementing carbon nanotubes and polymers. Understanding the design and working principles of nanowires described here, requires a multidisciplinary background of physics, chemistry, materials science, electrical and optoelectronics engineering, bioengineering, etc. This book is organized in eighteen chapters. In the first chapters, some considerations concerning the preparation of metallic and semiconductor nanowires are presented. Then, combinations of nanowires and carbon nanotubes are described and their properties connected with possible applications. After that, some polymer nanowires single or complementing metallic nanowires are reported. A new family of nanowires, the photoferroelectric ones, is presented in connection with their possible applications in nonvolatile memory devices. Finally, some applications of nanowires in Magnetic Resonance Imaging, photoluminescence, light sensing and field-effect transistors are described.
The Open Nanomedicine Journal aims to rapidly publish original scientific articles that focus on the advances of nanomedicine. The Open Nanomedicine Journal is a peer-reviewed nanomedicine journal publishing research articles, reviews, and letters in the field of nanomedicine. The journal publishes the articles of original research in the field of nanomedicine focusing on new advances on the medical applications of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
The Open Nanoscience Journal is a peer-reviewed Open Access online journal, which publishes research articles, reviews, and letters in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, encompassing biotechnology, medicine, pharmaceuticals, chemistry, physics, biology, materials science and electronics.
Optical Nanoscopy is devoted to the rapid dissemination of original works on principles, development, and applications of optical imaging with spatial resolution substantially better than half the wavelength of light. The journal will have an emphasis on far- field optical approaches with resolution at the nanometer scale, as well as on advancements of near-field optical microscopy.
Particle and Fibre Toxicology is interested in receiving manuscripts which report new scientific data, hypotheses and reviews on the toxicological effects of particles and fibres. The journal functions as a forum for scientific debate and communication between toxicology and disciplines that develop (nano)particles for future applications.
In 2004 a new era in material science was opened: the era of graphene or, more generally, of two-dimensional materials. Graphene is the strongest and the most stretchable known material, it has the record thermal conductivity and the very high mobility of charge carriers. It demonstrates many interesting fundamental physical effects and promises a lot of applications, among which are conductive ink, terahertz transistors, ultrafast photodetectors and bendable touch screens. In 2010 Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics "for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene". The two volumes Physics and Applications of Graphene - Experiments and Physics and Applications of Graphene - Theory contain a collection of research articles reporting on different aspects of experimental and theoretical studies of this new material.
This textbook is written for researchers who have chosen to study an area that appeals to them and one in which they show a genuine interest. It is targeted together to form the knowledge pathway to obtain an advanced polymeric research in polymer thin film.
