Part of the NanoScience and Technology book series (NANO)


In this book we covered several aspects connected with the physical properties of nanorods. In the following, we will summarize the major advances in this field, with emphasis on the present and foreseen applications, and we will give an outlook on what, in our opinion, will be the most significant advances and challenges laying ahead in this fascinating area of research.
