About this book

This book provides a comprehensive summary of nanowire research in the past decade, from the nanowire synthesis, characterization, assembly, to the device applications. In particular, the developments of complex/modulated nanowire structures, the assembly of hierarchical nanowire arrays, and the applications in the fields of nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, quantum devices, nano-enabled energy, and nano-bio interfaces, are focused. Moreover, novel nanowire building blocks for the future/emerging nanoscience and nanotechnology are also discussed.Semiconducting nanowires represent one of the most interesting research directions in nanoscience and nanotechnology, with capabilities of realizing structural and functional complexity through rational design and synthesis. The exquisite control of chemical composition, morphology, structure, doping and assembly, as well as incorporation with other materials, offer a variety of nanoscale building blocks with unique properties.

Reviews

“The book is well worth reading. It is clear, well-organized, and informative. It is well focused on NWs and provides an overview of the extensive literature on this topic. … It is helpful for researchers new to the field of NWs because it provides a useful list of many of the papers available on the subject. It is also useful to experts in the field because it stimulates ideas for new experiments.” (Rosaria A. Puglisi, MRS Bulletin, Vol. 42, July, 2017)
