The development of nanostructured materials represents a new and fast evolving application of recent research in physics and chemistry. Novel experimental tools coupled with new theory have made this possible. Topics covered in this book include nanocrystals, semiconductor heterostructures, nanotubes, nanowires, and manipulation and fabrication techniques. The core of the book consists of ten lectures by five distinguished researchers, Paul Alivisatos, D.D. Awschalom, Sumio Iijima, Charles Lieber and Phaedon Avouris, presented at an Advanced Study Institute in Hong Kong in January 1999. It should interest materials physicists and chemists as well as materials scientists with an interest in the growth and characterisation of sophisticated materials.

Editorial Reviews

From an Advanced Study Institute, apparently held during 1998 in Hong Kong, 32 invited, oral, and poster papers discuss preparing and characterizing nanostructured materials as well as the relevant physics and chemistry. Among their specific topics are synthesizing nanowires from laser ablation, producing very long aligned carbon nanotubes, tribological properties of self-assembled monolayers, and preparing narrowly distributed novel stable and soluble polyacetylene nanoparticles. The location encouraged the reporting of much Asian science that be less known in the wide world than that from the west. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
