About this product
- DescriptionGlass Nacomposites: Synthesis, Properties and Applications provides the latest information on a rapidly growing field of specialized materials, bringing light to new research findings that include a growing number of techlogies and applications. With this growth, a new need for deep understanding of the synthesis methods, composite structure, processing and application of glass nacomposites has emerged. In the book, world rewned experts in the field, Professors Karmakar, Rademann, and Stepav, fill the kwledge gap, building a bridge between the areas of nascience, photonics, and glass techlogy. The book covers the fundamentals, synthesis, processing, material properties, structure property correlation, interpretation thereof, characterization, and a wide range of applications of glass nacomposites in many different devices and branches of techlogy. Recent developments and future directions of all types of glass nacomposites, such as metal-glasses (e.g., metal nawire composites, naglass-mesoporous silica composites), semiconductor-glass and ceramic-glass nacomposites, as well as oxide and n-oxide glasses, are also covered in great depth. Each chapter is logically structured in order to increase coherence, with each including question sets as exercises for a deeper understanding of the text.
- Author BiographyProfessor Karmakar has over 32 years' of research experience on the preparation, characterization and property evaluation of different types of glass nanocomposites, glasses (viz. chalcogenide, silicate, borosilicate, fluorophosphate, phosphate, borate, silica, etc.), glass-ceramics, ceramic oxide powders, gels etc. His notable R&D contributions are in the process technology development of nanometal- and semiconductor-glass hybrid nanocomposites, Nd- and Er-doped phosphate laser glass, phosphate based radiation sensitive (RPL) glass, high density radiation resistant lead silicate (RSW) glass, optical glass, ultra-low expansion transparent glass-ceramics, machineable glass-ceramics, ferroelectric glass-ceramic nanocomposite, rare-earth (RE) doped luminescent glasses and glass-ceramics, rare-earth doped nanocrystalline nonlinear optical (NLO) glass-ceramic nanocomposites, thermally cyclable glass-based solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) sealants, and high purity silica glass by sol-gel technique. Prof. Dr. Klaus Rademann has over 30 years of research experience on the preparation, characterization and property evaluation of different types of nanoparticles in the gas phase, nanoparticle synthesis, nanoparticle growth mechanisms, electronic structure determination, catalysis, and electronic energy transfer on fractals. He has also studied electron and energy transfer processes in porous VYCOR glass by employing spectroscopy. During the last 8 years he succeeded in the fabrication of long term stable soda lime silicate glasses doped with metal nanoparticles and their respective oxides for optical applications. Rare-earth (RE) doped luminescent glasses and glass-ceramics, nanometal- and semiconductor-glass hybrid nanocomposites are in the focus of his current studies. Prof. Stepanov has over 25 years' research, teaching and professional experience in the Nanoscience, particularly in the area of Glass Nanocomposites. He was awarded the degree of Doctor of Science for his work on synthesis and optical properties of metamaterials with metal nanoparticles. His research interests are Nanooptics, Nanoplasmonics, Metal nanoparticles, Porous materials, Metamaterials, Nonlinear optics, Laser annealing and Ion implantation.
