Description: Nanotechnology is a rapidly growing field based on interdisciplinary science. It is, therefore, not surprising that there is an interest for nanotechnology amongst physicists, chemists, engineers and biologists. Many universities, all over the world, have already introduced nanotechnology at undergraduate and post-graduate levels. India is no exception. This book will give an introduction to nanotechnology and methods of making nanomaterials (physical, chemical, biological and hybrid). Various analysis techniques (microscopies and spectroscopies) with reference to nanomaterials have been discussed. Structure, thermal, optical, magnetic, transport properties of the nanomaterials have been elaborated with appropriate examples. Applications of nanotechnology in electronics, optoelectronics, energy (solar cells), cosmetics, textile, medicine etc. have been discussed. In order to understand nanotechnology some basic understanding about quantum mechanics and solid state physics (chemistry) is essential which is also briefly discussed in the book. Achapter is included to enable some simple, low cost experiments to be carried out in a teaching laboratory on nanotechnology.
