Theory of Scanning Tunneling Microscopy
by Samir Lounis - arXiv , 2014
The goal of this manuscript is to review the basics behind the theory accompanying Scanning Tunneling Microscopy. Contents: Introduction; Description of scanning tunneling microscopy; Modeling currents; Examples of simulations and experiments.
Lecture Notes on Nanomagnetism
by Olivier Fruchart - Institut Neel, Grenoble , 2011
Nanomagnetism may be defined as the branch of magnetism dealing with low-dimension systems and/or systems with small dimensions. These notes are mainly devoted to magnetic ordering, magnetic domains, magnetization reversal, and more.
Optical properties of semiconductor nanostructures: decoherence versus quantum control
by Ulrich Hohenester - arXiv , 2004
Optical spectroscopy and quantum control of semiconductor quantum dots has become a vivid field of research. The recent progress in both theory and experiment is reviewed, with emphasis on theoretical and computational concepts.
Quantum Transport in Semiconductor Nanostructures
by C.W.J. Beenakker, H. van Houten - arXiv , 2004
In this review we present a self-contained account of three novel transport regimes in semiconductor nanostructures. The experimental and theoretical developments in this field have developed hand in hand, a balance that we maintained here as well.
Polymer Thin Films
by Abbass A Hashim - InTech , 2010
Written for researchers who have chosen to study an area that appeals to them and one in which they show a genuine interest. It is targeted together to form the knowledge pathway to obtain an advanced polymeric research in polymer thin film.
The Quantum Hall Effect: Novel Excitations and Broken Symmetries
by Steven M. Girvin - arXiv , 1999
These notes present an introduction to most aspects of the integer and fractional quantum Hall effects. This is followed by an extensive discussion of quantum Hall ferromagnetism. The effective field theories are derived and discussed in some detail.
Computational Nanoscience: Do It Yourself!
by Johannes Grotendorst, Stefan Bluegel, Dominik Marx - NIC , 2006
This volume focuses on the application of electronic structure calculations and dynamical simulation techniques covering aspects of solid state physics, surface and nanoscience, chemical reactions and dynamics, magnetism and electron transport, etc.
Introduction to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
by M. Kuno , 2005
These notes about nanoscience and nanotechnology should explain to the student some of the underlying concepts behind 'nano'. It describes to the student the physics rather than just providing a qualitative overview of developments in the field.
Engines of Creation: The Coming Era of Nanotechnology
by Eric Drexler - Anchor , 1986
This book heralds the new age of nanotechnology, which will give us thorough and inexpensive control of the structure of matter. Drexler examines the enormous implications of these developments for medicine, the economy, and the environment.
Essentials of Nanotechnology
by Jeremy Ramsden - BookBoon , 2009
The book introduces the reader to the world of Nanotechnology, the basis of the next technological revolution. The author explains the basic concepts and definitions regarding choice of materials, then it proceeds to discuss the areas of application.
Nanomaterials - A Sojourn
by B Viswanathan - National Centre for Catalysis Research , 2006
Nanomaterials today have pervaded every sphere of human activity and can be presented in various formats. Sector-wise application of nanomaterials yields a synthesis approach and probably easy to comprehend. This approach is adopted in the book.
Unbounding the Future: the Nanotechnology Revolution
by E. Drexler, C. Peterson, G. Pergamit - William Morrow and Co. , 1991
An examination of the benefits and dangers of the new nanotechnology revolution. The book delivers scenarios of nanotechnology at work, some thrilling, some terrifying, all compelling. The authors give a deep sense of things that will happen.
