Nanomaterials: Quantum Dots, Nanowires, and Nanotubes

What is a quantum dot? What is a nanowire? What is a nanotube? Why are they interesting and what are their potential applications? How are they made? This presentation is intended to begin to answer these questions while introducing some fundamental concepts such as wave-particle duality, quantum confinement, the electronic structure of solids, and the relationship between size and properties in nanomaterials....
