  • Graphitic Nanofibersby Juzer Jangbarwala

    Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 50.00

    The world of nanomaterials is complex; there is dubiety as well as unrealistic optimism about costs, practicality, timing for the availability of, and the true capabilities of products featured in the news. The progress of the industry is being affected from the incertitude generated by the multitudinous names used, coupled with lack of... more...

  • Quantifying Interactions of Biomolecules with Inorganic Surfacesby Abhijeet Patra

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 91.98

    This thesis demonstrates the adaptation of existing techniques and principles towards enabling clean and precise measurements of biomolecules interacting with inorganic surfaces. In particular, it includes real-time measurement of serum proteins interacting with engineered nanomaterial. Making meaningful and unambiguous measurements has been an evolving... more...

  • Growth and Transport in Nanostructured Materialsby Angel Yanguas-Gil

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 47.53

    This book will address the application of gas phase thin film methods, including techniques such as evaporation, sputtering, CVD, and ALD to the synthesis of materials on nanostructured and high aspect-ratio high surface area materials. We have chosen to introduce these topics and the different application fields from a chronological perspective: we... more...

  • Rubber Nano Blendsby Gordana Markovic; P M Visakh

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 137.44

    This book summarizes the preparation, characterization and applications of rubber based nano blends. Rubbers from natural and synthetic polymers and their blends are discussed in the individual chapters, including nitrile, polyurethane, chlorosulphonated, polybutadiene, styrene butadiene, polychloroprene rubbers. In each chapter, contributors from... more...

  • Stimuli-Responsive Interfacesby Takeshi Kawai; Mineo Hashizume

    Springer Singapore 2016; US$ 81.40

    This book introduces recent progress in stimuli-responsive interfaces constructed on colloidal materials such as micelles and vesicles and on solid material surfaces. There is discussion of the effect of stimuli such as light, heat, pH, and electric field on changes in the morphology of the molecules at the interfaces and that of colloidal materials.... more...

  • Control of Magnetotransport in Quantum Billiardsby Christian Morfonios; Peter Schmelcher

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 42.28

    In this book the coherent quantum transport of electrons through two-dimensional mesoscopic structures is explored in dependence of the interplay between the confining geometry and the impact of applied magnetic fields, aiming at conductance controllability. After a top-down, insightful presentation of the elements of mesoscopic devices and transport... more...

  • Active Plasmonic Devicesby Diana Martín Becerra

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 91.98

    This thesis investigates the effect of the magnetic field on propagating surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs), or surface plasmons for short. Above all, it focuses on using the magnetic field as an external agent to modify the properties of the SPPs, and therefore achieving active devices. Surface plasmons are evanescent waves that arise at metal?dielectric... more...

  • Quantum Dots for Quantum Information Processing: Controlling and Exploiting the Quantum Dot Environmentby Martin J. A. Schütz

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 91.98

    This thesis offers a comprehensive introduction to surface acoustic waves in the quantum regime. It addresses two of the most significant technological challenges in developing a scalable quantum information processor based on spins in quantum dots: (i) decoherence of the electronic spin qubit due to the surrounding nuclear spin bath, and (ii) long-range... more...

  • Chiral Nanophotonicsby Martin Schäferling

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 84.57

    This book describes the physics behind the optical properties of plasmonic nanostructures focusing on chiral aspects. It explains in detail how the geometry determines chiral near-fields and how to tailor their shape and strength. Electromagnetic fields with strong optical chirality interact strongly with chiral molecules and, therefore, can be used... more...

  • Nutraceuticalsby Alexandru Grumezescu

    Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 200.00

    Nutraceuticals , the fourth volume in the Nanotechnology in the Agri-Food Industry series, is an invaluable resource for anyone in the food industry who needs the most current information about scientific advances in this field. Nutraceuticals are gaining significant attention because of their apparent safety, as well as their nutritional and... more...
