About this product
- DescriptionThe importance and actuality of natechlogy is unabated and will be for years to come. A main challenge is to understand the various properties of certain nastructures, and how to generate structures with specific properties for use in actual applications in Electrical Engineering and Medicine. One of the most important structures are nawires, in particular superconducting ones. They are highly promising for future electronics, transporting current without resistance and at scales of a few nameters. To fabricate wires to certain defined standards however, is a major challenge, and so is the investigation and understanding of these properties in the first place. A promising approach is to use carbon natubes as well as DNA structures as templates. Many fundamental theoretical questions are still unanswered, e.g. related to the role of quantum fluctuations. This work is tackling them and provides a detailed analysis of the transport properties of such ultrathin wires. It presents an account of theoretical models, charge transport experiments, and also conveys the latest experimental findings regarding fabrication, measurements, and theoretical analysis. In particular, it is the only available resource for the approach of using DNA and carbon natubes for nawire fabrication. It is intended for graduate students and young researchers interested in nascale superconductivity. The readers are assumed to have kwledge of the basics of quantum mechanics and superconductivity.
- Author BiographyAlexey Bezryadin is Professor with the Micro- and Nanotechnology Laboratory and the Biophotonics Group at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Previous assignments have taken him to CNRS Low-Temperature Research Center (CRTBT), France, the University of Delft, NL, and Harvard University. His research interests encompass techniques to enable novel investigations of systems with dimensions approaching 5 nm, fabrication of nanowires, loops, and SQUIDs by using carbon nanotubes as substrates, and also DNA templates.
