Inorganic Nanostructures: Properties and Characterization

By: Keith Williams (author), Petra Reinke (author)Hardback

1 - 2 weeks availability


This monograph for young researchers and professionals looking for a comprehensive reference offers an advanced treatment of the topic that extends beyond an introductory work. As such, it systematically covers the inorganic nanostructures in the breadth needed, while presenting them together with the surface science tools used to characterize them, such as electron spectroscopy, scanning probe, near-field and Raman techniques. Also includes magnetism of small particles.
