About this product
- DescriptionThis book presents the diversity of recent advances in carbon natubes from a broad perspective that will be useful for scientists as well as for graduate students and engineers. Presenting leading-edge research in this dynamic field, this volume is an introduction to the physical concepts needed for investigating carbon natubes and other one-dimensional solid-state systems. Written for a wide scientific readership, each chapter consists of an instructive approach to the topic and sustainable ideas for solutions. Carbon natubes, with their extraordinary mechanical and unique electronic properties, have garnered much attention in recent years. With a broad range of potential applications, including naelectronics, composites, chemical sensors, biosensors, microscopy, naelectromechanical systems, and many more, the scientific community is more motivated than ever to move beyond basic properties and explore the real issues associated with carbon natube-based applications. Carbon natubes are exceptionally interesting from a fundamental research point of view. They open up new perspectives for various applications, such as na-transistors in circuits, field-emission displays, artificial muscles, or added reinforcements in alloys. This book reviews the recent progress in modeling of carbon natubes and their composites. The advantages and disadvantages of different methods are discussed. The ability of continuum methods to bridge different scales is emphasized. Recommendations for future research are given by focusing on what each method has to learn from the na-scale. The scope of the book is to provide current kwledge aiming to support researchers entering the scientific area of carbon natubes to choose the appropriate modeling tool for accomplishing their study and place their efforts to further improve continuum methods.
