About this book
This book presents nanotechnology fundamentals and applications in the key research areas of information technology (electronics and photonics) and alternative (solar) energy. Three major technology areas – electronics, photonics and solar energy -- are linked on the basis of similar applications of nanostructured materials in research and development. By bridging the materials physics and chemistry at the atomic scale with device and system design, integration, and performance requirements, tutorial chapters from worldwide leaders in the field provide a coherent picture of theoretical and experimental research efforts and technology development in these highly interdisciplinary areas. The tutorials combine the treatment of fundamentals with discussion of some of the critical challenges facing science and technology today. • Provides an authoritative overview of the current status and future trends of nanoelectronics, photonics, and solar energy • Presents broad-ranging tutorials on both theoretical and experimental aspects of key topics in nanotechnology • Written by recognized international experts in each area • Addresses the needs of both graduate students and nanotechnology "gurus"
