About this book


This book provides a comprehensive overview of contemporary basic research, emerging technology, and commercial and industrial applications associated with the electrophoretic deposition of nanomaterials.  This presentation of the subject involves a historical survey, as well as discussions of the underlying theory of electrophoresis, dielectrophoresis, and the colloidal deposition of microscale and nanoscale materials.  This includes an assessment of the experimental equipment and procedures for electrophoretic aggregation, manipulation, and deposition of nanoparticles, nanotubes, and other nanomaterials.  Additional chapters explore the specific science and technology of electrophoretic film formation, using widely studied and application-driven nanomaterials, such as carbon nanotubes, luminescent nanocrystals, and nanoscale ceramics.  The concluding chapters explore industrial applications and procedures associated with the electrophoretic deposition of nanomaterials.
