Summary and Info
Nanotechnology - the creation and utilization of functional materials, devices, and systems with dimension on the order of 0.1 to 100 nanometers, and exhibiting novel properties and functions - is now a major international research initiative. Significant roles of nanotechnologies are foreseen in medicine, electronics, structural materials, catalysis, fluid separations, power generation, environmental management, and materials design. This new book focuses on the synthesis and processing of nanomaterials, nanophase formation/structure in glasses and glass-ceramics, formation and microstructure properties, nanophase separation, nano-structures, and more. This timely volume is sure to provide readers with the latest information in the rapidly developing area of ceramic nanotechnology. Papers presented at the 2002 Annual Meeting, St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
