New book on nanophotonics and nanofabrication
(Nanowerk News) Starting out with a review of the principles of nanophotonics, this book covers a wide range of novel nanofabrication technologies. The internationally recognized editor pioneered this field of research and here he has gathered together a team of authors to highlight the technical details and procedures for both discrete particle as well as surface structure generation. They also illustrate the application potential of different materials, including biological, inorganic and artificial ones.
An invaluable monograph for materials scientists, chemists, physicists, telecommunications engineers, surface and physical chemists.
