B-C-N Nanotubes and Related Nanostructures by Chee Huei Lee, Vijaya K. Kayastha (auth.), Yoke Khin Yap

By Chee Huei Lee, Vijaya K. Kayastha (auth.), Yoke Khin Yap (eds.)

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and Boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) are a part of the so-called B-C-N fabric approach, consisting of novel nanostructures of carbon (C), doped-carbon, boron (B), boron nitride (BN), carbon nitride (CNx), boron-carbon nitride (BxCyNz), and boron carbide (BxCy). BNNTs and CNTs are structurally related and percentage striking mechanical homes, yet they range in chemical, organic, optical, and electric houses. accordingly, hybrid nanotubes developed of B, C, N components are anticipated to shape a brand new classification of nanotubes with tunable houses among these of CNTs and BNNTs. additionally, those B-C-N nanostructures will extra improve and supplement the functions of CNTs and BNNTs. With contributions from top specialists, B-C-N Nanotubes and similar Nanostructures is the 1st ebook to hide all theoretical and experimental features of this rising fabric approach, and meets the necessity for a finished precis of the large advances in examine on B-C-N fabrics lately.

Mind Fields

"Imagine a global the place surgical procedure isn't any longer wanted. think being able to examine and service harm to the human mind with no creating a unmarried incision. you're imagining a nanobot, a programmable robotic in regards to the measurement of a unmarried human cellphone. "
— Dr. Sandi Fletcher, Johns Hopkins collage; June five, 2045

Special Agent hint McKnight imagines a really diversified global; a global during which nanobots implanted within the human mind can be utilized to regulate the activities and suggestions in their host, turning any guy into the suitable killing desktop, even person who might assassinate the President of the us. This renegade NSA agent infiltrates the lab of Dr. Fletcher to scouse borrow her nanomedicine study with the intention to strengthen his mind-control weapon, yet quickly arouses her suspicions. Fletcher enlists the aid of Baltimore police detective Richie Kincade, and the pair quickly locate themselves stuck up in an online of espionage that locations them without delay within the cross-hairs of the seditious NSA agent, a guy feared even via these inside of his personal association. As McKnight's plan unfolds, Kincade realizes that he and the great health care provider have simply been pawns in a online game that neither of them have been ready to play, yet that won't cease them from taking part in to win.

Carbon nanotubes: properties and applications

Carbon Nanotubes takes a huge examine CNTs and the instruments used to check them. It opens with a normal creation to the elemental features and the background of CNTs, by way of discussions on synthesis equipment and the expansion of "peapod" buildings. insurance then strikes to digital homes and band constructions of single-wall nanotubes (SWNTs), magnetic houses, Raman spectroscopy of digital and chemical habit, and electromechanical houses and purposes in NEMS.
