Nanotechnology Product Type
   Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Nanocrystals / Quantum Dots       Quantum dots, artificial atoms, quantum bits or nanocrystals are are so small that their energies or optical properties are determined by particle size and shape due to quantum confinement effects and not the bulk material properties of the material. Quantum dots can be manufactured using semiconducting or conducting materials.  Colloidal dispersions or quantum dots have useful photo-emission properties.  Applications for quantum dots include optical displays (LEDs, flat panel displays), memory (Flash memory), cryptography systems, photovoltaics (solar cells), storage media, flexible electronics, neural networks, telecommunications components and quantum computing.   
   Nano Fiber / Nanowire       Solid fibers or wires have a nanoscale diameter such as a nanowires, nanorods, quantum wires, nano wire arrays or nano fibers. Length may exceed nanoscale dimensions.  Nanowire may provide high conductivity interconnects within future integrated circuit devices. 
   Nanotube       Nanotubes are toroidal-shaped fullerene molecules or strings of C60 carbon molecules stacked into a nanosized carbon tube shape.  Depending on their structure, nanotubes can serve as conductors that conduct electricity as efficiently as copper or semiconductors. Long filament nanotubes can be used as reinforcements in composites to produce high strength and lightweight materials. Nanotubes have also been synthesized from other materials.  Aggregates of nanotubes are called nanohorns.  Gas or liquid molecules can be trapped inside a nanotube, providing a potential mechanism for gene insertion or drug nanoencapsulation and delivery. 
   Nanogel / Nanoporous (Aerogel)       Nanogels, aerogels, hydrogels or other nanoporous material have a pore structure on the nanometer scale. Silica aerogel's pore network (2 to 50 nm) accounts for 95% of the material's volume. The fine, open porosity of nanogels can be used for thermal insulation, as a scaffold for nanocomposite manufacturing, and to capture fragrances, chemical, catalysts or biochemicals for later delivery or analysis.  
   Nanostructured Material / Compound       Nanostructured materials include compounds, composites, alloys, ceramics or other finished consolidated products with a crystal size or structure on a nanoscale.  The nanostructured materials can be fabricated through a variety of means such as nanoparticle additions to a metal, ceramic or polymer matrix; severe thermomechanical processing of an alloy; chemical or electrochemical synthesis; and vapor deposition (CVD, PVD, etc.) 
   Nano Device       Electronic, optical, mechanical or electromechanical devices are built on a nanoscale or with nanosized components. 
   Nano Powder / Particulate       Powders or particulates have a nanoscale particle size or an average size within the nanoscale range ( 1 to 100 nm). 
   Fullerenes       Fullerenes or buckyballs are carbon (C60) molecules having a cage-like structural arrangement of 60 or more atoms. The surface of the fullerene sphere consists of a mixture of twelve rings with five carbon atom members with the balance of rings having six carbon atoms.  The name for these materials was derived from Buckminster Fuller due to similarity between the molecules and the geodesic dome structures that Fuller invented. Gas or liquid molecules can be trapped inside the buckyball, providing a potential mechanism for drug nanoencapsulation and delivery.

Specifications
   Particle / Feature Size:       The diameter or width of the nanoparticle, nanotube, nano powder or particulate.  On consolidated nanomaterials or nano devices, this is the diameter or width of the nanoscale feature or crystal. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Specific Surface Area (SSA):       Specific surface area (SSA) is the surface area of the particulate in terms of mass per unit surface area.  On  very small particles, specific surface area may be easier to determine than a direct measurement of crystal size.  Specific surface area can provide an indication of average particle size, but not particle size range or distribution.  Typically, gas absorption techniques such as Brunauer-Emmett-Teller absorption (BET) are used to determine SSA.
