Methods for the synthesis of nanoparticles and nanomaterials

Synthesis of nanomaterials is what I am learning by taking Dr. Ferreira's course "Nanomaterials". Though it seems sort of way off the Mechanics projects we are doing, it does great help for better understanding of the materials properties at the Nano-scale level. I post a brief intruction about the methods for the synthesis of nanoparticles here, and hope you can get rough concepts about it.

Dr. Zhigang Suo and his students at Harvard have set up a new multi-blog serving the research community in mechanics. Anyone can participate. See Why should you post in iMechanica and many other posts for details. My first post was on Modeling Place. We have been doing well here, but iMechanica offers much more. I urge you to register and post in iMechanica. Over time, we will migrate from Modeling Place to iMechanica, to be part of a larger community.

Nanodot: the original nanotechnology weblog


Nanotechnology: from Feynman to Funding


Nanotube resonators break gigahertz barrier


Selected review article by Prof. Suo

In Dr Suo's homepage, he posted his favorite review articles.

1. Micromechanics of macroelectronics
2. Reliability of interconnect structures
3. Motions of microscopic surfaces in materials
4. Mixed-mode cracking in layered materials

some of artilcles were mentioned by Dr Huang in his thin film mechanics class. These are really good articles.
