Computational Nanotechnology: Modeling and Applications with by Sarhan M. Musa

By Sarhan M. Musa

Applications of nanotechnology proceed to gasoline major recommendations in components starting from electronics, microcomputing, and biotechnology to drugs, patron provides, aerospace, and effort creation. As growth in nanoscale technological know-how and engineering ends up in the continuing improvement of complex fabrics and new units, more desirable tools of modeling and simulation are required to accomplish a far better quantitative knowing of subject on the nanoscale.


Computational Nanotechnology: Modeling and functions with MATLAB® offers specialist insights into present and rising equipment, possibilities, and demanding situations linked to the computational recommendations concerned about nanoscale learn. Written by way of, and for, these operating within the interdisciplinary fields that contain nanotechnology—including engineering, physics, chemistry, biology, and medicine—this e-book covers a extensive spectrum of technical info, learn principles, and functional wisdom. It provides an advent to computational equipment in nanotechnology, together with a more in-depth examine the idea and modeling of 2 vital nanoscale structures: molecular magnets and semiconductor quantum dots.


Topics coated include:




  • Modeling of nanoparticles and complicated nano and MEMS systems



  • Theory linked to micromagnetics



  • Surface modeling of skinny films



  • Computational recommendations used to validate hypotheses that will not be obtainable via conventional experimentation



  • Simulation tools for numerous nanotubes and modeling of carbon nanotube and silicon nanowire transistors


In regard to functions of computational nanotechnology in biology, members describe monitoring of nanoscale buildings in cells, results of assorted forces on mobile habit, and use of protein-coated gold nanoparticles to higher comprehend protein-associated nanomaterials. Emphasizing the significance of MATLAB for organic simulations in nanomedicine, this wide-ranging survey of computational nanotechnology concludes by way of discussing destiny instructions within the box, highlighting the significance of the algorithms, modeling software program, and computational instruments within the improvement of effective nanoscale systems.
