In recent years there has been a rapid explosion of interest in nanotechnology. The field has captured the imagination of scientists, engineers, governments, environmentalist as well as the general public. Nanotechnology has been featured in popular novels, films and mainstream media. The importance of nanotechnology has been recognised by awards of three noble prizes over the last 50 years. Internationally governments in USA, Europe, China, Japan and India have made significant amounts of funding available for nanotechnology research with expectation of creating jobs and energising the economy. The range and number of products based on nanotechnology developments have also increased rapidly over the last decade.
In order to translate nanotechnology developments into products then manufacturing of nanostructure on a large scale reproducibly and cost effectively become important considerations. These manufacturing capabilities need to be developed and enhanced. Nanotechnology is such a broad field it requires concentrated effort from multidisciplinary team of experts to move the field forward in terms of manufacturing of nanostructures.
A single volume such this can only cover a small spectrum of materials and manufacturing methods.
This book contains 15 chapters from international experts focusing on topics such as processing and synthesis of nanomaterials, gas condensation, vacuum deposition such as chemical vapordeposition and chemical vapor condensation, pulsed laser deposition, mechanical attrition, high energy milling, sol-gel techniques, hydrolysis, condensation, growth and agglomeration and electrodeposition. It brings together a team of international experts on nanotechnology and we hope it will arouse interest of academics, research students and industrialist and stimulate further debate and research into manufacturing of nanostructures for a range of applications.
Edited by Professor Waqar Ahmed and Co-Edited by Dr Nasar Ali.
