Anisotropic Nanomaterials: Preparation, Properties, and by Quan Li

By Quan Li

In this ebook anisotropic one-dimensional and two-dimensional nanoscale construction blocks and their meeting into interesting and qualitatively new practical buildings embracing either demanding and tender elements are defined. Contributions from best specialists relating to very important elements like synthesis, meeting, houses and functions of the above fabrics are compiled right into a reference publication. The anisotropy, i.e. the direction-dependent actual houses, of fabrics is interesting and chic and has sparked the hunt for anisotropic fabrics with valuable homes. With this sort of interest, fabric scientists have ventured into the area of nanometer size scale and feature explored the anisotropic nanoscale development blocks resembling steel and nonmetallic debris in addition to natural molecular aggregates. It seems that the anisotropic nanoscale construction blocks, as well as direction-dependent homes, show size and morphology dependence of actual houses. in addition, ordered arrays of anisotropic nanoscale construction blocks provide novel homes into the ensuing procedure which might be solely diverse from the homes of person ones. certainly, those promising houses have certified them as permitting development blocks of twenty first century fabrics technological know-how, nanoscience and nanotechnology. Readers will locate this e-book professionally important and intellectually stimulating within the speedily rising zone of anisotropic nanomaterials.

Quan Li, Ph.D., is Director of the natural Synthesis and complex fabrics Laboratory on the Liquid Crystal Institute of Kent kingdom collage, the place he's additionally Adjunct Professor within the Chemical Physics Interdisciplinary application. He has directed research
projects funded via US Air strength examine Laboratory (AFRL), US Air strength workplace of clinical examine (AFSOR), US military examine workplace (ARO), US division of security Multidisciplinary collage study Initiative (DoD MURI), US nationwide technological know-how origin (NSF), US division of power (DOE), US nationwide Aeronautics and house management (NASA), Ohio 3rd Frontier, and Samsung Electronics, between others.

5 Silicon Nanowire Based Solar Cells and Anodes for Li-Ion Batteries Energy generation from renewable sources and storage of electrical energy are among the most pressing technical challenges for our society. These fields can benefit from silicon nanowires [9] as well, as they have the potential to increase the optical absorption and collection efficiency in solar cells [8, 125, 126]. Single nanowire solar cells can be used to study the parameters that influence the performance of nanowire based photovoltaics [126–129].
