WILEY-VCH Publication, Germany
This book is divide into two sections (A) Nanomaterials synthesized by lasers and (B) Nanomaterials Characterization using various laser based spectroscopic methods. This book is devoted to all undergraduate, postgraduate, primary stage and experienced researcher in the field of nanomaterials. The researchers working in the field of laser processing of materials can be benefited extremely by reading various state of art techniques used for the synthesis of nanomaterials using various pulsed and CW laser systems. Scientist and researchers, who are engaged in the conventional laser based atomic and molecular spectroscopy can be stimulated to use their laser systems in the processing and characterization of nano-materials. Experienced scientist and researchers from all around the world have contributed their best work as chapters of this book. This is the unique book in the field of nanomaterials processing by lasers.
The first in-depth treatment of the synthesis, processing, and characterization of nanomaterials using lasers, ranging from fundamentals to the latest research results, this handy reference is divided into two main sections. After introducing the concepts of lasers, nanomaterials, nanoarchitectures and laser-material interactions in the first two chapters, the book goes on to discuss the synthesis of various nanomaterials in vacuum, gas and liquids. The second half discusses various nanomaterial characterization techniques involving lasers, from Raman and photoluminescence spectroscopies to light dynamic scattering, laser spectroscopy and such unusual techniques as laser and photo acoustic, laser ultrasound, and laser-induced thermal pulses.
The specialist authors adopt a practical approach throughout, with an emphasis on experiments, set-up, and results. Each chapter begins with an introduction and is uniform in covering the basic approaches, experimental setups, and dependencies of the particular method on different parameters, providing sufficient theory and modeling to understand the principles behind the techniques.
Highly relevant to both researchers and those working in the industry.
