About this book

This book gives a comprehensive review of the present status of research in this fast moving field by researchers actively contributing to the advances. After a short introduction and a brief review of the relation between carbon nanotubes, graphite and other forms of carbon, the synthesis techniques and growth mechanisms for carbon nanotubes are described. This is followed by reviews on nanotube electronic structure, electrical, optical, and mechanical properties, nanotube imaging and spectroscopy, and nanotube applications.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Various aspects of nanotubes are ... treated in fourteen chapters, starting with a survey of historical and conceptual aspects by M. S. Dresselhaus and Ph. Avouris. … This volume gives a comprehensive, and at the same time representative, survey of the present status of research in this fast-moving field. The wide spectrum of key theoretical and experimental aspects is covered on 447 pages. The volume certainly represents an excellent contribution to carbon-based materials science." (Z. Slanina, Fullerens, Nanotubes, and Carbon Nanostructures, Vol. 10 (2), 2002)
