About this book

This book summarizes the electrochemical routes of nanostructure preparation in a systematic and didactic manner. It provides a comprehensive overview of electrodeposition, anodization, carbon nanotube preparation and other methods of nanostructure fabrication, combining essential information on the physical background of electrochemistry with materials science aspects of the field.

The book includes a brief introduction to general electrochemistry with an emphasis on physico-chemical aspects, followed by a description of the sample preparation methods. In each chapter, an overview of the particular method is accompanied by a discussion of the relevant physical or chemical properties of the materials, including magnetic, mechanical, optical, catalytic, sensoric and other features. While some preparation methods are discussed in connection with the theories of physical electrochemistry (e.g. electrodeposition), the book also covers methods that are more heuristic but nonetheless utilize electric current (e.g. anodization of porous alumina or synthesis of carbon nanotubes by means of electric arc discharge).

About the author

László Péter graduated as a teacher of physics and chemistry in 1992 and obtained his Ph.D. degree (chemistry) in 1995 at the Eötvös University of Budapest, Hungary. He spent two years at the University of Texas at Austin (USA) as a postdoctoral researcher and one year at the Hitachi Research Laboratory (Japan) as a visitor scientist. He then joined the research institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, now called the Wigner Research Centre for Physics, where he works as a scientific advisor. He became Doctor of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 2013. Besides the electrodeposition of magnetic/non-magnetic multilayers which is his major field, he also deals with structural analysis of electrodeposited alloys, corrosion studies, composition depth profile analysis of electrodeposited metals, electrochemical hydrogen permeation, electrochemical impedance analysis and scanning electron microscopic investigation of various physico-chemical systems. He is the co-author of 100research papers, 2 book chapters and 1 textbook.
