Nanomaterials: An introduction to synthesis, properties and applications

(Nanowerk News) This first full-colored introduction to nanomaterials and nanotechnology addresses in particular the needs of engineers who have to know the special phenomena and potentials, without going into too much scientific detail of the physics and chemistry involved.
Based on the author's own successful courses, Nanomaterials: An Introduction to Synthesis, Properties and Applications shows how to produce nanomaterials and use them in engineering applications for novel products. Following an introduction, the text goes on to treat synthesis, characterization techniques, thermal, optical, magnetic and electronic properties, processing and, finally, emerging applications.
Engineers looking for a sound introduction to the "nano world" will find this especially useful, since the features of nanomaterials are discussed from an application-oriented perspective.
