Item description for Understanding Carbon Nanotubes: From Basics to Applications (Lecture Notes in Physics) by A. Loiseau, P. Launois, P. Petit, S. Roche & J. P. Salvetat...

This volume presents the foundations of carbon nanotube science including the most recent developments and the prospects for technological applications. Each chapter begins with a tutorial introduction to the relevant interdisciplinary topics from physics, chemistry or materials science. These summaries of the essential background knowledge are followed by detailed presentations of specific issues. The latter include: polymorphism of carbon and the microstructure of its phases; synthesis methods and growth mechanisms; structural analysis by electron microscopy; spectroscopic methods; electronic structure; transport; mechanical and surface properties of nanotubes and composites. All readers, be they students or experienced researchers, will come to appreciate how progress in nanotube science is intimately linked to advances in experimental and computational tools.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about Understanding Carbon Nanotubes: From Basics to Applications (Lecture Notes in Physics)?

now comes the hard work  Nov 11, 2006
Now comes the hard work.

Several years ago, in the 90s, carbon nanotubes were first seen when C60 (fullerenes) were made using electric arc discharges. The exciting potential for nanotubes was quickly recognised. It is part of the road to this still hypothetical future that this book is devoted. It draws together ideas from chemistry, physics and material science.

Hence, one synthesis method uses Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD), which is a longstanding idea used in making surface films. But the book also looks at possible ways by which the nanotubes actually grow, at the atomic level. Researchers want ways to precisely control the nanotubes that are made.

The physics is also interesting. A nanotube can be a quasi one or two dimensional structure. Very useful for investigating quantum phenomena, as well as larger scale properties like electrical and thermal conductivities.
