Plasma technology, and its application at the nanoscale, faces new challenges in the synthesis of well-defined nanomaterials, in terms of their size, shape, and composition. With numerous examples of the synthesis of various classes of nanomaterials, this book provides a comprehensive overview of recent developments and advancements in plasma processing of nanomaterials. Combining both experimental and theoretical work, it describes the successful application of plasma processing to synthesize, modify, and process nanomaterials as well as the use of plasma processing in nanoe1ectronics, catalysis, energy sensors, and nanomedicine.
