Unconventional nanomanufacturing on a substrate

Nanostructured materials may be defined as those materials whose structural elements (clusters, crystallites or molecules) have dimensions in the 1- to 100-nm range. The explosion in both academic and industrial interest in these materials over the past decade arises from the remarkable variations in...

Tunable Plasmonic Metamaterial

Plasmonic metamaterials are artificial materials typically composed of noble metals in which the features of photonics and electronics are linked by coupling photons to conduction electrons of metal (known as surface plasmon). These rationally designed structures have spurred interest noticeably since...

Effect of Dimensionality on Function : Fibers vs Films

The properties of materials are not only dependent upon their chemistry, but also on their physical shape, i.e., the properties of a material in its fiberous form may be different than when it is in the form of a film. Here, polymeric nanofilms and electrospun nanofibers, which may be sputter coated...

Green synthesis of nanoparticles

There are many definitions for nanotechnology and nanomaterials due to their multidisciplinary nature. The general definition of nanomaterials is that the structures have at least one dimension in the range of 100 nm or smaller. The definition for nanotechnology is that it is a discipline to investigate...
