About this Textbook

This exploratory textbook starts with fundamentals that satisfy the needs of a diverse group of educators, researchers and students aspiring to engage in research and engineering of nanomaterials. It bridges the gap between undergraduate students in science and engineering who have not yet chosen a specific career path, graduate students still considering different disciplines and the cross-cutting scientific topics in nanomaterials. It extends to methods of common practice in the field, spanning experimental, and theoretical techniques. The extensive use of nanomaterials, such as carbon nanotubes, in the future of global technological solutions underscores the relevance of this text aimed at students and researchers with a range of interests. “Advances in Nanomaterials: Fundamentals, Properties and Applications,” is ideal for senior undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and general science enthusiasts interested in nanomaterials across contexts ranging from solar energy, structural engineering, to medical devices, to semiconductors.
