Handbook of Nanoceramics and Their Based Nanodevices contributes a broader awareness and understanding of the most recent advances and emerging new aspects of nanoceramics from science to engineering to medicine. This handbook covers synthesis, functionalization, processing, and characterization of nanoceramics in the form of nanocomposites, nanoparticles, quantum dots, nanotubes, nanowires, nanorods, nanocrystals, nanofilms, superlattice, and bulk; structure-property relationship at nanometer scales; functional nanoceramics; structural nanoceramics; metal-ceramic nanocomposites; polymer-ceramic nanocomposites; ceramic-ceramic nanocomposites; nanoporous ceramics; electrical, electronic, magnetic, optoelectronic, optical, thermal, thermoelectric, mechanical, dielectric, ferroelectric, piezoelectric, pyroelectric, chemical properties of nanoceramics; nanoceramics for fuel cell, battery, gas sensor, acoustic wave sensor, biosensor, field emission display, photonic device, pyroelectric device, capacitor, conductor, nonvolatile memories, information storage device, semiconductor, transistor, catalytic, structural, biological, photocatalytic, electrochemical and environmental sensing applications. low and high-k ceramics for nanoelectronic applications. This book focuses on an interdisciplinary approach of nanoceramics by blending their nanoscale chemistry, physics, engineering, and biology. This is the first handbook ever published on nanostructured ceramic materials and their device applications. The five volumes summarize the advances in nanoscale ceramics made over the past decades. This handbook is a unique source of the in-depth knowledge of synthesis, processing, fabrication, spectroscopy, physical properties and device applications of nanoscale ceramics. This handbook contains 79 state-of-the-art review chapters written by more than 150 world leading experts from 20 countries. Over 10,000 bibliographic citations and thousands of figures, tables, photographs, chemical structures and equations, this handbook is written by the most renowned scientists from the international scientific community in the world. It has been divided into five volumes based on thematic topics:

Volume 1. Synthesis and Processing
Volume 2. Nanocomposites
Volume 3. Characterization and Properties
Volume 4. Electronic Applications
Volume 5. Sensors, Fuel Cells, and Biomedical Applications

This handbook is intended for a very wide range of audience working in the fields of ceramics and nanotechnology., therefore, it covers all aspects of nanoscale ceramics from science to engineering and device applications. This handbook is a valuable reference source for scientists, research professionals working in R&D laboratories, students, college and university professors working in the fields of nanotechnology, ceramic science and technology, powder and colloidal science, synthetic and crystal chemistry, glass materials, materials science, composites, solid-state physics, electrical and electronics engineering, photonic technology, medical sciences, bioceramic science and technocrats, everyone who is involved in nanoceramics.
