By M. Meyyappan

Carbon nanotubes, with their outstanding mechanical and certain digital houses, have garnered a lot awareness long ago 5 years. With a extensive diversity of strength functions together with nanoelectronics, composites, chemical sensors, biosensors, microscopy, nanoelectromechanical structures, and plenty of extra, the medical group is extra influenced than ever to maneuver past uncomplicated houses and discover the true concerns linked to carbon nanotube-based applications.

Taking a complete examine this varied and dynamic topic, Carbon Nanotubes: technological know-how and purposes describes the field's a number of points, together with houses, development, and processing innovations, whereas concentrating on person significant software components. recognized authors who perform the craft of carbon nanotubes every day current an outline on buildings and homes, and talk about modeling and simulation efforts, progress by means of arc discharge, laser ablation, and chemical vapor deposition. functions turn into the point of interest in chapters on scanning probe microscopy, carbon nanotube-based diodes and transistors, box emission, and the advance of chemical and actual sensors, biosensors, and composites.

Presenting up to date literature citations that categorical the present nation of the technology, this ebook totally explores the advance part of carbon nanotube-based functions. it's a worthwhile source for engineers, scientists, researchers, and execs in a variety of disciplines whose concentration continues to be at the energy and promise of carbon nanotubes.

Editor Meyya Meyyappan will obtain the Pioneer Award in Nanotechnology from the IEEE Nanotechnology Council on the IEEE Nano convention in Portland, Oregon in August, 2011
