Magnetism and Spintronics in Carbon and Carbon Nanostructured Materials Excerpt :

Magnetism and Spintronics in Carbon and Carbon Nanostructured Materials offers coverage of electronic structure, magnetic properties and their spin injection, and the transport properties of DLC, graphene, graphene oxide, carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, and their different composite materials. This book is a valuable resource for those doing research or working with carbon and carbon-related nanostructured materials for electronic and magnetic devices. Carbon-based nanomaterials are promising for spintronic applications because their weak spin-orbit (SO) coupling and hyperfine interaction in carbon atoms entail exceptionally long spin diffusion lengths (~100μm) in carbon nanotubes and graphene. The exceptional electronic and transport features of carbon nanomaterials could be exploited to build multifunctional spintronic devices. However, a large spin diffusion length comes at the price of small SO coupling, which limits the possibility of manipulating electrons via an external applied field. Assesses the relative utility of a variety of carbon-based nanomaterials for spintronics applications Analyzes the specific properties that make carbon and carbon nanostructured materials optimal for spintronics and magnetic applications Discusses the major challenges to using carbon nanostructured materials as magnetic agents on a mass scale

Tribology and Characterization of Surface Coatings Excerpt :

TRIBOLOGY AND CHARACTERIZATION OF SURFACE COATINGS The book provides updated information on the friction and wear behavior of coatings used in various industrial applications. Surface modification is a cost-effective process of increasing the life of components so that the whole device need not be changed if the surface is worn out. The tribological behavior of biological implants is currently an active topic and a thorough discussion is one of the book’s features. Tribology and Characterization of Surface Coatings explores key issues which are important in the research and development of surface coatings by providing updated information on friction and wear behavior of coatings used in different industrial applications. It covers the various coating deposition techniques, tribological response of nanocomposite coatings, multilayer hardfacing, and wear testing methods for coatings at nanoscale. The use of nanostructures may alter the tribological, characterization, and mechanical properties of the materials. Thermal spraying is the most widely used technique in industry for the deposition of coatings and their tribological properties need to be determined. This book also includes the recent trends in biotribology and the materials used in implants to counter the abrasive wear. Audience The book will serve as a reference to researchers, scientists, academicians, industrial engineers, and students who work in the fields of materials/polymer science and mechanical engineering. Apart from their applications to aerospace and electronics industries, the coatings are also used in the field of biomedical engineering.

The Physics and Chemistry of Nanosolids Excerpt :

A comprehensive textbook that addresses the recent interest in nanotechnology in the engineering, materials science, chemistry, and physics communities In recent years, nanotechnology has become one of the most promising and exciting fields of science, triggering an increasing number of university engineering, materials science, chemistry, and physics departments to introduce courses on this emerging topic. Now, Drs. Owens and Poole have revised, updated, and revamped their 2003 work, Introduction to Nanotechnology, to make it more accessible as a textbook for advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level courses on the fascinating field of nanotechnology and nanoscience. The Physics and Chemistry of Nanosolids takes a pedagogical approach to the subject and assumes only an introductory understanding of the physics and chemistry of macroscopic solids and models developed to explain properties, such as the theory of phonon and lattice vibrations and electronic band structure. The authors describe how properties depend on size in the nanometer regime and explain why these changes occur using relatively simple models of the physics and chemistry of the solid state. Additionally, this accessible book: Provides an introductory overview of the basic principles of solids Describes the various methods used to measure the properties of nanosolids Explains how and why properties change when reducing the size of solids to nano-dimensions, and what they predict when one or more dimensions of a solid has a nano-length Presents data on how various properties of solids are affected by nanosizing and examines why these changes occur Contains a chapter entirely devoted to the importance of carbon nanostructured materials and the potential applications of carbon nanostructures The Physics and Chemistry of Nanosolids is complete with a series of exercises at the end of each chapter for readers to enhance their understanding of the material presented, making this an ideal textbook for stu

Graphene Excerpt :

Often described as a "miracle material", graphene's potential applications are extraordinary, ranging from nanoscale 'green' technologies, to sensors and future conductive coatings. This book covers the topic of 'graphene' – the history, fundamental properties, methods of production and applications of this exciting new material. The style of the book is both scientific and technical – it is accessible to an audience that has a general, undergraduate-level background in the sciences or engineering, and is aimed at industries considering graphene applications. As the graphene topic is a broad-reaching and rapidly moving field of research, the aim of this book is therefore to provide information about graphene and its current and future applications that are immediately implementable, relevant and concise. After reading this book, the reader will have sufficient knowledge and background to move forward independently into graphene R&D and to apply the knowledge therein. Although the book will be self-contained, each chapter has copious references to enable further reading, research and exploration of the chapter topics.
