    NanocrystalQuantum DotsSecond EditionEdited by

    Victor I. KlimovLos Alamos National Laboratory, New Mexico, USA

    A review of recent advancements in colloidalnanocrystals and quantum-confined nanostructures,Nanocrystal Quantum Dots is the second edition ofSemiconductor and Metal Nanocrystals: Synthesis andElectronic and Optical Properties, originally publishedin 2003. This new title reflects the books alteredfocus on semiconductor nanocrystals.

    Gathering contributions from leading researchers,this book contains new chapters on carrier multipli-cation (generation of multiexcitons by single pho-tons), doping of semiconductor nanocrystals, andapplications of nanocrystals in biology. Otherupdates include:

    New insights regarding the underlying mecha-nisms supporting colloidal nanocrystal growth

    A revised general overview of multiexciton phe-nomena, including spectral and dynamical signa-tures of multiexcitons in transient absorption andphotolumines cence

    Analysis of nanocrystal-specific features of multi-exciton recombination

    A review of the status of new field of carrier mul-tiplication

    Expanded coverage of theory, covering theregime of high-charge densities

    New results on quantum dots of lead chalco-genides, with a focus studies of carrier multiplica-tion and the latest results regarding Schottkyjunction solar cells

    The book also includes a review of recent progressmade in biological applications of colloidal nanocrys-tals, as well as a comparative analysis of the advan-tages and limitations of techniques for preparing bio-compatible quantum dots. The authors summarizethe latest developments in the synthesis and under-standing of magnetically doped semiconductornanocrystals, and they present a detailed discussionof issues related to the synthesis, magneto-optics,and photoluminescence of doped colloidalnanocrystals as well. A valuable addition to the pan-theon of literature in the field of nanoscience, thisbook presents pioneering research from expertswhose work has led to the numerous advances of thepast several years.

    Introduction toNanoscience andNanotechnologyGabor L. Hornyak, Harry F. Tibbals, Joydeep Dutta, and John J. Moore

    The maturation of nanotechnology has revealed itto be a distinct discipline rather than a specializationwithin a larger field. Its textbook cannot afford to bea chemistry, physics, or engineering text focused onnano. It must be an integrated, multidisciplinary,and specifically nano textbook. The archetype of the modern nano textbook, Introduction toNanoscience and Nanotechnology builds a solidbackground in characterization and fabricationmethods while integrating the physics, chemistry,and biology facets. The remainder of this color textfocuses on applications, examining engineeringaspects as well as nanomaterials and industry-specif-ic applications in such areas as energy, electronics,and biotechnology.
