This book comprises four chapters.

  • Chapter 1 explains the basics of epitaxial growth and demonstrates the epitaxial growth by Molecular Beam Epitaxy methods in detail. This explains the analyzing techniques of growth and various examples of epitaxial film with growth mechanism in detail. This chapter also explains in depth the electronics properties of epitaxial materials and also provides the future directions.
  • Chapter 2 introduces to self assembly and explains its principles. It also explains the self assembly of different nano metals and compounds in detail. This chapter focuses on efficiency self assembled Nanomaterials and demonstrates their several applications.
  • Chapter 3 explains the top down and bottom up approaches in general and also demonstrates in depth High Energy Ball Milling as Top Down Approach. In Bottom Up Approach category several techniques are discussed. Under this category several system which utilize bottom up approach for the preparation of nano based materials are discussed in details.
  • Chapter 4 explains about hybrid Nanomaterials and also hybrid techniques for the formation of Nanomaterials in detail. It explains various applications of hybrid Nanomaterials.
