Markets, the leading source for international market research and market
data, has announced the addition of a new handbook "optics
of nanomaterials" to their offering.
While the chemistry, physics, and optical properties of simple atoms and molecules
are quite well understood, this book demonstrates that there is much to be learned
about the optics of nanomaterials. Through comparative analysis of the size-dependent
optical response from nanomaterials, it is shown that although strides have
been made in computational chemistry and physics, bridging length scales from
nano to macro remains a major challenge. Organic, molecular, polymer, and biological
systems are shown to be potentially useful models for assembly. Our progress
in understanding the optical properties of biological nanomaterials is important
driving force for a variety of applications.
Researchers working in the field of optics and materials science (physics and
chemistry of nano-materials, surface science, linear and nonlinear optics);
graduates and postgraduates studying related fields.
