Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5ld42q/nanosilicon) has announced the addition of Elsevier Science and Technology's new report "Nanosilicon" to their offering.
Properties of nanosilicon in the form of nanoparticles, nanowires, nanotubes, and as porous material are of great interest. They can be used in finding suitable components for future miniature devices, and for the more exciting possibilities of novel optoelectronic applications due to bright luminescence from porous silicon, nanoparticles and nanowires. New findings from research into metal encapsulated clusters, silicon fullerenes and nanotubes have opened up a new paradigm in nanosilicon research and this could lead to large scale production of nanoparticles with control on size and shape as well as novel quasi one-dimensional structures. There are possibilities of using silicon as an optical material and in the development of a silicon laser.
In this book leading experts cover state-of-the-art experimental and theoretical advances in the different forms of nanosilicon. Furthermore, applications of nanosilicon to single electron transistors, as photonic material, chemical and biological sensors at molecular scale, and silicon nanowire devices are also discussed. Self-assemblies of silicon nanoforms are important for applications.
These developments are also related to cage structures of silicon in clathrates. With an interesting focus on the bottlenecks in the advancement of silicon based technology, this book provides a much-needed overview of the current state of understanding of nanosilicon research.
Key Topics Covered:
1. Silicon Nanoparticles: New photonic and electronic material at the transition between solid and molecule
2. Cluster Assembled Silicon Networks
3. Metal Encapsulated Clusters of Silicon - Silicon fullerenes and other caged polyhedral forms
4. Porous Silicon - Sensors and future applications
5. Silicon Nanowires and Nanowire Heterostructures
6. Theoretical Advances in the Electronic and Atomic Structures of Silicon Nanotubes and Nanowires
7. Phonons in Silicon Nanowires
8. Quasi-One-Dimensional Silicon Nanostructures
9. Low Dimensional Silicon as a Photonic Material
10. Nanosilicon Single-Electron Transistors and Memory
