  • Relaxation of the Chemical Bondby Chang Q Sun

    Springer 2014; US$ 279.00

    The aim of this book is to explore the detectable properties of a material to the parameters of bond and non-bond involved and to clarify the interdependence of various properties. This book is composed of four parts; Part I deals with the formation and relaxation dynamics of bond and non-bond during chemisorptions with uncovering of the correlation... more...

  • Scanning Tunneling Spectroscopy of Magnetic Bulk Impuritiesby Henning Prüser

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    Magnetic impurities in a non-magnetic host metal have been?actively explored in condensed matter physics?in recent?last decades. From?both fundamental and applied?viewpoints these systems are very interesting because they can exhibit strong electronic correlations that give rise to various fascinating phenomena beyond the single particle picture. Up... more...

  • Electronic Properties of Graphene Heterostructures with Hexagonal Crystalsby John Wallbank

The author’s research work utilizes ion track etching polymer nanochannels... more...

  • Inorganic Nanoarchitectures by Organic Self-Assemblyby Stefan Guldin

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    Macromolecular self-assembly - driven by weak, non-covalent, intermolecular forces - is a common principle of structure formation in natural and synthetic organic materials. The variability in material arrangement on the nanometre length scale makes this an ideal way of matching  the structure-function demands of photonic and optoelectronic devices.... more...
