Silicon Carbide Nanostructures
Silicon carbide nanostructures exhibit a range of fascinating and industrially important properties, such as stability of photoluminescence, inertness to chemical surroundings, and good biocompatibility. These properties have generated an increasing interest in the materials, which have great potential in a variety of applications across the fields of microelectronics, optoelectronics, biomedical engineering, and medicine. Silicon carbide is a promising substitute for silicon, especially in high power, high temperature and high frequency microelectronic devices. Recent breakthrough pertaining to the synthesis of ultra-high quality SiC single-crystals have advanced our understanding of silicon carbide and brought the materials closer to real applications in microelectronics.
Silicon Carbide Nanostructures: Fabrication, Structure, and Properties is the first book to bring together in a single volume the most up-to-date information on the fabrication techniques, properties and potential applications of low dimensional SiC nanostructures such as nanocrystallites, nanowires, nanotubes and colloids.
