Guide Through the Nanocarbon Jungle

Buckyballs, nanotubes, graphene and beyond
David Tománek


This practical guide in a glossary format with more than 300 entries, 100 figures and 2000 cross-references helps to quickly identify (in contrast to a web search) relevant information for most topics related to nanocarbons. The compendium is rounded off with tables including the timelines of fullerenes, nanotubes and graphene, illustrating the growing interest in the field of carbon nanostructures. Supplementary information, linked to each entry, is a dynamically growing resource containing multimedia material, additional references and links.

About Editors

David Tománek studied physics in Switzerland and received his PhD from the Free University in Berlin. While holding a position as Assistant Professor of Physics in Berlin, he engaged in theoretical research in nanostructures at the AT&T Bell Laboratories and the University of California at Berkeley. He established the field of computational nanotechnology at Michigan State University, where he holds a position as Full Professor of Physics. His scientific expertise lies in the development and application of numerical techniques for structural, electronic and optical properties of surfaces, low-dimensional systems and nanostructures. Since working on his PhD thesis, he has promoted the use of computer simulations to understand atomic-level processes at surfaces and in atomic clusters.
