This monograph covers most essential things an advanced researcher needs to know attempting to fabricate exotic nanostructures and intricate nano–arrays in low–temperature plasma environments. In an easy–to–follow and systematic way, the book reveals the state–of–the art "know–hows" gained from authors work in this area: how to generate and control the plasma, how to develop suitable plasma nanofabrication facilities, how to tailor the plasma–based process to synthesize specific nanostructures and several others. Various examples of successful applications of plasma–aided nanofabrication include synthesis and post–processing of carbon nanotubes and other high–aspect–ratio nanostructures, microporous films, low–dimensional quantum confinement structures, bioceramic coatings, and other nanocrystalline and nanostructured materials with a broad range of applications ranging from protective and functional coatings to biogenetic and nanoelectronic devices. The level of complexity in this book varies from the common knowledge to the expert level to make it suitable not only to researchers, engineers, and graduate students specializing in relevant areas but also to high school teachers, students and general public interested in nanotechnology.

Kostya (Ken) Ostrikov is a leader of the Plasma Nanoscience@Complex Systems team at the University of Sydney, Australia. After receiving his Doctor of Science (Habilitation) degree and professorial appointment in 1996, he has been awarded 6 prestigious fellowships to work with leading research universities in the UK, Germany, Japan, Singapore, and Australia. His research interests are in the areas of applied and industrial physics, and research topics include low–temperature plasmas for nanofabrication, synthesis of functional materials and bio–compatible coatings, development of industrial process specifications and integrated plasma facilities for materials synthesis and surface modification, as well as several fundamental topics including atomic assemblies and growth kinetics of various nanostructures with different dimensionality, as well as complex (dusty) plasmas, surface phenomena in surface science, materials science, and nanoplasmonics, and nanoparticle–related phenomena in space physics and astrophysics.

Shuyan Xu is the founding leader of the Plasma Sources and Applications Research Center of NIE/NTU, Singapore. His research interests include the development of novel RF power deposition schemes, deposition and understanding of growth kinetics of nano–structured functional films, biocompatible coatings, plasma–aided nanofabrication of large–area nanopatterns of quantum dots and carbon microemitter structures for micro–/optoelectronic and biomedical applications.
