Nanomaterials: Quantum Dots, Nanowires and Nanotubes

By Timothy D. Sands

Purdue University

Published on

Abstract

What is a quantum dot? What is a nanowire? What is a nanotube? Why are they interesting and what are their potential applications? How are they made? This presentation is intended to begin to answer these questions while introducing some fundamental concepts such as wave-particle duality, quantum confinement, the electronic structure of solids, and the relationship between size and properties in nanomaterials.

A more recent version of this talk titled "Nanotubes and Nanowires: One-dimensional Materials" is available.

Breeze Presentations use Macromedia Breeze and only require installation of the Flash Player to view.
