Nanostructures Preparation


Nanostructure covers the major concepts and fundamentals of nanoscience and nanotechnology confirming characteristics, properties, and applications of numerous nanostructures. Nanostructures is the significant source of reference for early-career researchers, practicing materials scientists and engineers seeking a focused overview of the science of nanostructures, systems of nanostructured, and their industrial implementations. Also the nanostructures refer to structures or materials that have at least one dimension falling in nanometer scale between 1 and 100 nm. The different sub-fields of nanotechnology focus on the fabrication (synthesis), characterization, and application of nanostructures. Clearly, there are two approaches to preparation or fabrication of the nanostructures which are bottom-up and top down. In addition to wide effort in the nanostructures fabrication, the present research and development of nanostructure are focused on the investigation of fundamental properties of materials such as, optical, electrical, and mechanical properties at the scale of Nano, and the development of novel implementations in broad domain of engineering fields. The goals of this workshop are to provide the excellent opportunity to present latest topics (Nanomaterials) and inexpensive methods or techniques of nanostructures fabrication (preparation) such as seed layer preparation and nanostructures growth with their implementations related to the field of nanoelectronic (optoelectronics) devices with discussion the key aspects of them.
