Nano-Architectured and Nanostructured Materials : Fabrication, Control and Properties
The book identifies new nanometric architectures that would be of particular interest for applications and the technological route to reach them. Nano-architectures of interest are for optical, electrical, magnetic, mechanical properties and reactivity, as well as for specific applications such as catalysis and medical diagnostic and drug delivery. Nano-architectures would be metals, alloys, ceramics, semi-conductors, polymers or hybrids inorganic-polymers materials. The book places special emphasis on crucial technical aspects of the fabrication, and the control and the characterisation of complex nano-architectures.

Prof. Dr. Hans-Jorg Fecht is head of the Materials Division of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Ulm, director of the center for Micro- and Nanomaterials at Ulm, and also leads a group at the Institute of Nanotechnology of Research Center Karlsruhe. He received his Ph.D. in Materials Science in 1984 from the University of Saarbrucken, then spent several years in the USA at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and CIT in Pasadena. He returned to Germany to professorships in Augsburg, Berlin, and since 1997, in Ulm. He has received the G.W. Leibniz award of the German Research Foundation (DFG), and has (co-)authored more than 200 technical papers. He is co-organizer of several European conferences and on several European advisory boards. Professor Yannick Champion is with the CNRS Research Center for Chemical Metallurgy in Vitry-sur-Seine. His research concentrates on nanocrystalline metals and materials and characterization and improvement of their mechanical properties. He was awarded several national and international prizes for his scientific work and co-organized several scientific conferences and serves on ther Editorial and Advisory Boards of international journals.
"...this book represents a really valuable resource for scientists and engineers working in this emerging field of materials science." (Polymer News, October 2005) "...the compiled articles will appeal to students who look for a starting point in the field..." (Journal of Metals Online, September 6, 2005)
