Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


This chapter we will describe the concepts of nanotechnology and nanoelectronics, then we will go on to the general fundamentals of the fabrication of nanostructures by FEBID and FIBID techniques with potential applications in superconductivity and spintronics. This is the general framework within which this thesis is classified, which is devoted largely to the fabrication and characterization of nanostructures that exhibit ferromagnetic or superconducting properties.
