Key Features

  • Discusses opto-electronic nanomaterials and their characterization and properties from an engineering perspective, enabling the commercialization of key emerging technologies
  • Provides scalable techniques for nanowire structure growth, manipulation, and assembly (i.e. synthesis)
  • Thoroughly revised, now including increased coverage of nanomaterial characterization, new photonic devices, and nano-manipulation, allowing readers to familiarize themselves with the latest developments in the field


Nano Optoelectronic Sensors and Devices: Nanophotonics from Design to Manufacturing, Second Editioncovers the development of nano-optoelectronic devices by first discussing the fundamental structure of nanodevices and the significance of nanomaterials and nanostructures in photonic devices.

A section is devoted to the discussion of the processes used to manufacture nanodevices in order to meet the challenges and difficulties of design and fabrication using nanomaterials. These include the development of the thermal annealing and packaging process to maintain the stability and reliability of the nanodevices. Other optoelectronic devices, including solar cells, graphene-based optical sensors and devices, nanowire-based infrared detectors, and advances in infrared imaging are also covered.

The materials contained here familiarize the reader with the latest developments in the design and manufacturing of nano-optoelectronic devices, and on the latest techniques in nanomanipulation and nanoassembly. The principles explored here also allow engineers to turn nanomaterials into commercially usable devices.


Industrial R&D and Academic communities including optical engineers, photonics engineers, instrumentation engineers, electronics engineers, functional optoelectronic materials engineers and others seeking practical information regarding the development of nanophotonic devices and technologies
