New Book - Growth and Transport in Nanostructured Materials (PVD, CVD & ALD)

Here is a good Christmas gift for the scientist you really care about.

Growth and Transport in Nanostructured Materials

Reactive Transport in PVD, CVD, and ALD

Authors: Angel Yanguas-Gil, Northwestern-Argonne Inst. of Science and Engineering, Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, USA 

This book will address the application of gas phase thin film methods, including techniques such as evaporation, sputtering, CVD, and ALD to the synthesis of materials on nanostructured and high aspect-ratio high surface area materials. We have chosen to introduce these topics and the different application fields from a chronological perspective: we start with the early concepts of step coverage and later conformality in semiconductor manufacturing, and how later on the range of application branched out to include others such as energy storage, catalysis, and more broadly nanomaterials synthesis.
