Part of the Springer Series in Materials Science book series (SSMATERIALS, volume 248)


This chapter reviews the application of isotopic materials science in different fields of nanotechnology and nanoscience. The application of stable isotopes is very briefly described: in first step nonlinear excitons in bulk isotope-mixed materials as well as phonon-related isotope effect: thermal expansion, thermal conductivity, and lattice constants. Part of this chapter is devoted to very interesting results connecting with isotope-mixed graphene and its application in nanoelectronics as well as nano-optics. Semiconducting graphene is based on the electronic excitation energy renormalization by the strong (nuclear) interaction. It was shown very useful for quantum processors that have used the low-dimensional structures (quantum wells, wires, and dots) in isotope-mixed compounds including graphene. The materials of this chapter stress very perspective of the new field of nanotechnology—isotopic materials science.
