Part of the Engineering Materials book series (ENG.MAT.)


Nanostructured materials are becoming of major significance, and their investigations require a comprehensive approach. Depending on the size of the smallest feature, the interaction of light with structured materials can be very different. The chapter identifies the nanostructures unique properties that make the nanostructure for varying applications and detailed about the properties.
