This monograph for young researchers and professionals looking for a comprehensive reference offers an advanced treatment of the topic that extends beyond an introductory work.
As such, it systematically covers the inorganic nanostructures in the breadth needed, while presenting them together with the surface science tools used to characterize them, such as electron spectroscopy, and scanning probe techniques. The unique challenges in the fabrication of nanostructures are illustrated, and set into the context of controlling structure, dimensionality and electronic properties.
