This is the 2nd edition of the original “Nanostructures and Nanomaterials” written by Guozhong Cao and published by Imperial College Press in 2004. This important book focuses not only on the synthesis and fabrication of nanostructures and nanomaterials, but also includes properties and applications of nanostructures and nanomaterials, particularly inorganic nanomaterials. It provides balanced and comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals and processing techniques with regard to synthesis, characterization, properties, and applications of nanostructures and nanomaterials. Both chemical processing and lithographic techniques are presented in a systematic and coherent manner for the synthesis and fabrication of 0-D, 1-D, and 2-D nanostructures, as well as special nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes and ordered mesoporous oxides. The book will serve as a general introduction to nanomaterials and nanotechnology for teaching and self-study purposes.

In 2006, "Or-Nano," a French scientific network on gold nanoparticles was created in France. The research group saw the need for a gathering of specialists on gold nanoparticles to facilitate deeper scientific exchange between the different scientific communities. The result is this book which provides a broad introduction to the fascinating and beautiful world of gold nanoparticles. This volume traces the fascinating history of gold nanoparticles which began in ancient times with red ruby glass, and reached its zenith at the end of the 17th century. It also provides an in-depth investigation into the use of gold nanoparticles over the ages an important aspect that is almost never treated in scientific books. Each chapter provides a lucid overview of the different aspects of gold nanoparticles including synthesis, optical and thermal properties, interaction with surfaces, catalysis, reactivity, biosensors, and nanomedicine. There is an ample focus on promising fields where gold nanoparticles are already creating breakthroughs such as in catalysis, cancer therapy and plasmonics. The issue of toxicity is also discussed comprehensively. The work may be used as an advanced textbook by graduate students and young scientists who need an introduction to gold nanoparticles. It will also be suitable for experts in the related areas of chemistry, biology, material science, and physics, who are interested to broaden their knowledge and provide an overview of the subject. The explanations in the book are detailed enough to capture the interest of the reader, and complete enough to provide the necessary background material needed to delve further into the subject and explore the literature.

This unique volume provides a broad introduction to plasmon resonances in nanoparticles and their novel applications. Here, plasmon resonances are treated as an eigenvalue problem for specific boundary integral equations and general physical properties of plasmon spectrum are studied in detail. The coupling of incident radiation to specific plasmon modes, the time dynamics of their excitation and dephasing are also analytically treated. Finally, the applications of plasmon resonances to SERS, light controllability (gating) of plasmon resonances in semiconductor nanoparticles, the use of plasmon resonances in thermally assisted magnetic recording (TAMR), as well as in all-optical magnetic recording and for enhancement of magneto-optic effects are presented.

Tomorrow’s nanoscientist will have a truly interdisciplinary and nano-centric education, rather than, for example, a degree in chemistry with a specialization in nanoscience. For this to happen, the field needs a truly focused and dedicated textbook. This full-color masterwork is such a textbook. It introduces the nanoscale along with the societal impacts of nanoscience, then presents an overview of characterization and fabrication methods. The authors systematically discuss the chemistry, physics, and biology aspects of nanoscience, providing a complete picture of the challenges, opportunities, and inspirations posed by each facet before giving a brief glimpse at nanoscience in action: nanotechnology. This book is written to provide a companion volume to Fundamentals of Nanotechnology. The two companion volumes are also available bound together in the single volume, Introduction to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Qualifying instructors who purchase either of these volumes (or the combined set) are given online access to a wealth of instructional materials. These include detailed lecture notes, review summaries, slides, exercises, and more. The authors provide enough material for both one- and two-semester courses.
