The discovery of new materials and the manipulation of their exotic properties for device fabrication is crucial for advancing technology. Nanoscience, and the creation of nanomaterials have taken materials science and electronics to new heights for the benefit of mankind.Advanced Materials and Nanosystems: Theory and Experiment covers several topics of nanoscience research. The compiled chapters aim to update students, teachers, and scientists by highlighting modern developments in materials science theory and experiments. The significant role of new materials in future technology is also demonstrated. The book serves as a reference for curriculum development in technical institutions and research programs in the field of physics, chemistry and applied areas of science like materials science, chemical engineering and electronics.

This part covers 12 topics in these areas:

  • - Recent advancements in nanotechnology: a human health Perspective.
  • - An exploratory study on characteristics of SWIRL of AlGaAs/GaAs in advanced bio based nanotechnological systems.
  • - Electronic structure of the half-Heusler ScAuSn, LuAuSn and their superlattice.
  • - Recent trends in nanosystems.
  • - Improvement of performance of single and multicrystalline silicon solar cell using low-temperature surface passivation layer and antireflection coating.
  • - Advanced materials and nanosystems.
  • - Effect of nanostructure-materials on optical properties of some rare earth ions doped in silica matrix.
  • - Nd2Fe14B and SmCO5: a permanent magnet for magnetic data storage and data transfer technology.
  • - Visible light induced photocatalytic activity of MWCNTS decorated sulfide based nano photocatalysts.
  • - Organic solar cells.
  • - Neodymium doped lithium borosilicate glasses.
  • - Comprehensive quantum mechanical study of structural features, reactivity, molecular properties and wave function-based characteristics of capmatinib.


Students, teachers, and scientists in the field of physics, chemistry and materials science.


First of all, I would like to congratulate Dr Dibya Prakash Rai for successfully publishing the first edited version of the book entitled “Advanced Materials and Nanosystems: Theory and Experiment”. Nothing surprised me more than the fact that, in comparison to his first release, Dr. Rai prepared the second edited book in such a short period. I know Dr. Rai since when he joined MSc. Physics at Mizoram University in 2007 and he has completed his Ph.D. degree under my supervision in 2013. He was a very hardworking student and later he emerged as a promising researcher. He has a dynamic personality with exceptional leadership qualities which reflect his intellectuality in management by coordinating the authors and the publishers, as a result, he could compile two edited books within a short period.

I'm overjoyed today for two reasons. First, my student has followed the route I've shown him. Second, for his achievements and efforts in a subject that I have always been passionate about (R & D). The title of the book makes me very happy. I wanted to read the full book, but I only had time to skim over each chapter of this edited book due to time constraints. All the chapters and the titles are diverse, very attractive, and cover most of the latest research topics. Though I would love to read every chapter thoroughly once it is published.

The content in this book is concise and thorough, and it covers current advanced materials and nanosystems research. This book takes us on a voyage to a newly found mystical realm that allows us to view atoms with the invention of transmission electron microscopy (TEM). We can now manipulate atoms to obtain useful information thanks to technological advancements. Electronics experts working with integrated circuits competed in a size-minimizing race that progressed from micro to submicron dimensions, bringing them closer and closer to the nanoscale. When scientists eventually get to the point where they can use a single electron as the basis of electronics, the entire concept of electronics will have to be rethought.

This evolution is not limited to electronics, since other disciplines of study such as mechanics, optics, chemistry, and biology have begun to develop their nanoworlds, which we now refer to as microsystems. Nanosystems, on the other hand, do not yet exist. It will take some time for them to emerge from the laboratory. As one must read this book to understand the difficulties and latest technical advancements, in the said topics, which raise the curtain from certain unclear concepts. As a result, we must be conscious of the ongoing difficulties and the stakes.

I'd like to encourage Dr. Rai for publishing a series of volumes of such books every year. I also encourage all the material scientists, engineers, and scholars to read this book and contribute to it.

Once again I would like to congratulate & wish you all the good luck !!!
