Nanostructured Materials and Nanotechnology VI, Volume 33, Issue 7


This issue features fourteen peer-reviewed papers originating from The 6th International Symposium on Nanostructured Materials and Nanotechnology. It includes Nanostructured coatings by cluster beam deposition; a new greener synthetic route to cadmium/lead selenide and telluride nanoparticles; and much more. Held in January 2012, during the 36th International Conference on Advanced Ceramics and Composites (ICACC), the symposium covered a broad range of issues, including synthesis, processing, modeling, and structure-property correlations in nanomaterials and nanocomposites, enabling scientists, engineers, and technologists from around the world to explore the latest developments in the field.
