Nanoscale Physics for Materials Science

Nanoscale Physics for Materials Science Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Although there are many books available on the preparation, properties, and characterization of nanomaterials, few provide an interdisciplinary account of the physical phenomena that govern the novel properties of nanomaterials. Addressing this shortfall, Nanoscale Physics for Materials Science covers fundamental cross-disciplinary concepts in materials science and engineering. It presents a comprehensive description of the physical phenomena and changes that can be expected when macroscopically sized materials are reduced to the nanometer level.

The text is divided according to physical phenomena and interactions. After reviewing the necessary theoretical background, the authors address the electrical, optical, and magnetic properties as functions of size and distance. They discuss the energy spectrum, the charging effect, tunneling phenomena, electronically induced stable nanostructures, absorption and scattering, electromagnetic interactions, magnetism, ferromagnetic domain-wall-related phenomena, and spin transport in magnetic nanostructures. Problem sets are included at the end of each chapter.

Providing an excellent treatment of physical phenomena not covered in similar books, this text explores the electrical, optical, and magnetic properties of materials at the nanoscale level. It delves into the dramatic physical changes that occur on scales where the quantum nature of objects starts dominating their properties.

Book News Annotation:

Intended as a textbook for graduate students, this volume is a cross-disciplinary work dedicated to describing physical phenomena that undergo quantitative or qualitative changes as the size of the objects under study gets down into the range of 0.1-1.0 nanometers. Here their quantum nature becomes more important, and thus the first chapter is devoted to an extensive discussion of the fundamentals of quantum mechanics and band structure. This is followed by lengthy discussions of the electrical, optical, and magnetic properties of nanoscale materials. Full of drawings and mathematical equations, each chapter ends with some problems to engage the reader. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Based on a progressive multi-disciplinary graduate course at the prestigious Tokyo Institute of Technology, this unique work offers an accessible approach to the nanoscale physics phenomena behind the unusual properties of nanomaterials. A current resource for material scientists, engineeers and physicists, as well as students, the book brings together the work of four leading experts, each of whom targets his specific area of expertise.

Crosses various fields to explore basic cross-disciplinary concepts in traditional as well as cutting-edge aspects of materials science and engineering

In relation to materials at the nanoscale, it covers fundamentals of quantum mechanics and band structure, electronic states and electrical properties, optical properties and interactions, and magnetic and magnetotransport properties. The book includes worked examples. A solutions manual is available for qualifying instructors.

Drawing from material taught at the multidisciplinary Global Center of Excellence project (G-COE) located at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, a world-leader in Materials and Polymer Science, this unique and invaluable resource -

  • Provides graduate programs with the first textbook to look at nanoscale physics phenomena behind the unusual properties of nanomaterial
  • Includes fundamentals as well as cutting-edge aspects
  • Takes an accessible, cross-disciplinary approach that can easily be understood by materials scientists and engineers, as well as physicists
