About the book

The nanostructured materials (NMs)- the heart of 21st-century nanotechnology- are materials with a microstructure and a length scale of nanometers. NMs may be defined as those materials whose structural elements - cluster, crystal, and molecule - have dimensions of 1-100 nm range. The explosion in both academic and industrial interest in NMs arises from the remarkable variations in fundamental electrical, optical, and magnetic properties that occur from a macroscopic solid to accountable atomic particles.

This book intends to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art in the synthesis, investigation, and simulation of functional NMs as well as the related applications, focusing on the outstanding physical and chemical behaviors at the micro/nanoscale. Carbon family (CVD graphene, graphene oxides, carbon nanotubes, and artificial diamond), and other nanostructures (nanofibers, nanocomposites, hexagonal-boron nitride (hBN), transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), magnetic materials, 2D oxides, hydroxides, perovskites, mono element structures, superconducting compounds, nanowires, nanofoams, nanopillar, nanoribbon, nanorings, nanoplates, nanoshells, black phosphorous, silicene, MXenes, metamaterials, quantum heterostructures, etc.) play a drastically key role in nanoscale science and technology and are thus demonstrated in-depth. Recent emerging achievements of NMS-based device fabrications and their prospect capabilities are addressed.
