About the book

Human civilization has witnessed drastic advancements in science and technology that has resulted in outbursts in the sectors of industrialization, urbanization, globalization, transportation, etc. Plenty of new materials have been introduced by scientists to fulfill the necessities for advancement. Among them the youngest allotrope of carbon – the Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs), a ~1 nm diameter cylindrical structure composed by a single atomic layer of hexagonally arranged C atoms, that floodgate of interest in 1-D nanostructures as 'omnipotent' materials. Due to the extraordinary characteristics of carbon nanotubes like - (i) high surface reactivity, (ii) ultra-high aspect ratio, (iii) high electrical conductivity, (iv) extraordinary thermal, optical and mechanical properties, etc, they have attracted the fancy of many researchers from the discovery of CNTs. Indeed, the electronics and electrical capabilities of CNTs have surpassed all traditional materials and unprecedented research interest has been focused on the exploration of the fascinating characteristics of CNTs towards electronics applications.

The book aims to cover, but not limited to, the Chemical, Physical and Electronic characteristics of CNTs and Electrochemical properties and applications. Contributions are also expected in the field of CNTs based High-Performance Thin Film Electronics, Field-Effect Transistors & Microelectronics Devices. Turning to special applications, the final section of the book is envisioned to explore CNTs in Renewable Energy Applications and Advancement in CNTs based Chemical sensors.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Romina Rovan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
