Micro and Nanofabrication Using Self Assembled Biological Nanostructures Book Review:

Self-assembled nanostructures based on peptides and proteins have been investigated and presented as biomaterials with an impressive potential for a broad range of applications such as microfabrication, biosensing platforms, drug delivery systems, bioelectronics and tissue reparation. Through self-assembly peptides can give rise to a range of well-defined nanostructures such as nanotubes, nanofibers, nanoparticles, nanotapes, gels and nanorods. However, there are challenges when trying to integrate these biological nanostructures in the development of sensing devices or drug-delivery systems – challenges such as controlling the size during synthesis, the stability in liquid environments and manipulation. In "Micro and Nanofabrication Using Self-assembled Biological Nanostructures" the options and challenges when using self-assembled peptide nanostructures in micro and nanofabrication are discussed. The publication covers different ways to manipulate, deposit and immobilize on specific locations these biological nanostructures in order to use them in the fabrication of new structures or as part of biosensing platforms. Examples where researchers used biological nanostructures for those types of applications are provided. Finally, future applications are discussed as well as parameters to accelerate and expand the use of these biological building blocks in nano- and micro-fabrication processes by taking advantage of their impressive properties such as low-cost and short synthesis time.

Self Assembled Peptide Nanostructures Book Review:

The self-organization of bionanostructures into well-defined functional machineries found in nature has been a priceless source of ideas for researchers. The molecules of life, proteins, DNA, RNA, etc., as well as the structures and forms that these molecules assume serve as rich sources of ideas for scientists or engineers who are interested in developing bio-inspired materials for innovations in biomedical fields. In nature, molecular self-assembly is a process by which complex three-dimensional structures with well-defined functions are constructed, starting from simple building blocks such as proteins and peptides. This book introduces readers to the theory and mechanisms of peptide self-assembly processes. The authors present the more common peptide self-assembled building blocks and discuss how researchers from different fields can apply self-assembling principles to bionanotechnology applications. The advantages and challenges are mentioned together with examples that reflect the state of the art of the use of self-assembled peptide building blocks in nanotechnology.

Nanomaterial Synthesis and Integration for Sensor and Energy Applications Book Review:

Nanostructures have unique properties that will be leveraged for next generation sensor and energy applications: large surface-to-volume ratios, increased sensitivity at lower input power levels, and higher current densities all contribute to increased functionality of nanostructure devices. The synthesis and integration of carbon-, metal-, and metal oxide-based nanostructures for sensor and energy applications are studied with the goal of nano-to-micro devices utilizing well-established micro- and nano-fabrication tools and techniques: (1) self-assembled, integrated carbon nanotube gas/pressure sensors; (2) titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanostructures for energy applications; and (3) silver nanowires and graphene for biological and optical sensing platforms. Suspended carbon nanotubes are grown by in situ heating of microstructures, self-assembled and integrated directly for electrothermal gas/pressure sensing. Titanium dioxide nanoswords, synthesized by induction heating, exhibit large areas of crystalline faces demonstrating enhanced photocatalytic activity. TiO2 nanosword synthesis is scaled for bulk growth and combined with microfabrication techniques to study solar absorption under visible light irradiation for photoelectrochemical cell applications. Silver nanowires are synthesized using oblique angle deposition (OAD), allowing for control over nanowire porosity and morphology based on substrate deposition angle. Graphene devices are fabricated using nanoimprint lithography (NIL) techniques. Suspended carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are grown by in situ heating of microstructures, allowing for the placement of CNTs at specific locations without conventional global furnace heating during the synthesis process. These CNT devices are self-assembled and the integration process monitored via electrical feedback. Electrothermal pressure sensing with selective gas and pressure sensing applications has been demonstrated. Furthermore, control and improvement of the self-assembled contact resistances of nano-to-micro interfaces have been investigated by means of local annealing via Joule heating. Titanium dioxide nanoswords have been synthesized using a rapid induction heating technique. These rutile-phase, single-crystalline nanostructures, typically 40-90 nanometers in thickness, 200-1000 nanometers in width, and up to tens of micrometers in length, exhibit large areas of exposed crystalline faces that show an enhanced photocatalytic reaction. Scaling up the synthesis method for bulk growth and ease of integration with existing microfabrication techniques has been studied for enhanced solar absorption of the titania nanostructures for possible large-scale water splitting applications under direct sunlight. In the third area of this dissertation, silver nanowires arrays were synthesized using oblique-angle deposition (OAD). Based on the angle of metal deposition, the thin-film porosity and nanowire morphology can be controlled. These nanostructure substrates have been used as biological test platforms for nanotoxicology studies, with trends indicating cell viability decreased as the thin film porosity increased. Finally, experimental results of graphene nanopatterning with nanoimprint lithography (NIL) for electrical and optical devices are discussed. Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) graphene is transferred onto silicon oxide substrates and patterned using different NIL mold configurations.

Handbook of Nanoscience Engineering and Technology Book Review:

In his 1959 address, "There is Plenty of Room at the Bottom," Richard P. Feynman speculated about manipulating materials atom by atom and challenged the technical community "to find ways of manipulating and controlling things on a small scale." This visionary challenge has now become a reality, with recent advances enabling atomistic-level tailoring and control of materials. Exemplifying Feynman’s vision, Handbook of Nanoscience, Engineering, and Technology, Third Edition continues to explore innovative nanoscience, engineering, and technology areas. Along with updating all chapters, this third edition extends the coverage of emerging nano areas even further. Two entirely new sections on energy and biology cover nanomaterials for energy storage devices, photovoltaics, DNA devices and assembly, digital microfluidic lab-on-a-chip, and much more. This edition also includes new chapters on nanomagnet logic, quantum transport at the nanoscale, terahertz emission from Bloch oscillator systems, molecular logic, electronic optics in graphene, and electromagnetic metamaterials. With contributions from top scientists and researchers from around the globe, this color handbook presents a unified, up-to-date account of the most promising technologies and developments in the nano field. It sets the stage for the next revolution of nanoscale manufacturing—where scalable technologies are used to manufacture large numbers of devices with complex functionalities.
