Comprehensive Book on Nanomaterials and Devices

Omar Manasreh, an electrical engineering professor at the University of Arkansas’ College of Engineering, has authored a research book titled ‘Introduction to Nanomaterials and Devices’. It is a comprehensive reference book to nanotechnology.

The book describes the advancement of semiconductor nanomaterials, bulk semiconductors and semiconductor thin films, and discusses quantum mechanics theory and its application to electrical and optical properties of nanomaterial structures. It explains new phenomena on the basis of traditional physics concepts and introduces basic nanomaterial concepts and instruments derived from these concepts. It covers the basic properties of nanomaterial and semiconductor systems such as quantum wires and quantum dots, and quantum structures like multiple and single quantum wells.

John Wiley and Sons is the publisher of the textbook, which is a valuable reference tool for students, researchers and practitioners interested in nanomaterials.

In 2003, Manasreh joined the University of Arkansas. Since then, he has been awarded a public research funding of over $8 million, which has been utilized to build an advanced research laboratory with equipment, including device fabrication, nanomaterial characterization, and device testing and assessment.

Manasreh investigates the theoretical and experimental optoelectronic properties of nanostructures, superlattices, semiconductors and related equipment. He has vast research experience in photovoltaic materials and devices, electronic and optoelectronic applications, and nanomaterial growth. His latest work is on optoelectronic devices like infrared detectors and multicolor detectors for focal plane arrays.

Manasreh has released over 190 papers in various technical journals and presented over 60 papers at several national and international conferences. He is a member at the University of Arkansas’ Institute for Nanoscience and Engineering.
