Physical Fundamentals of Nanomaterials systematically describes the principles, structures and formation mechanisms of nanomaterials, in particular the concepts, principles and theories of their physical properties as well as the most important and commonly used preparation methods. The book aims to provide readers with a basic understanding of how nanomaterials are synthesized as well as their resultant physical properties It thefore focuses on the science of nanomaterials rather than applications, serving as an excellent starting point for researchers, materials scientists and advanced students who already possess a basic knowledge of chemistry and physics.

  • Provides thorough coverage of the physics and processes involved in the preparation of nanomaterials

  • Contains separate chapters for various types of synthesis methods, including gas phase, liquid phase, solid phase, and self-assembly

  • Coverage of properties inludes separate chapters on mechanical, thermal, optical, electrical and magnetic
