Chapter 7 describes various methods of fabrications and characterization of nanomaterials. In addition to the traditional semiconductor processing methods such as molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and metal—organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD), the use of nanochemistry, which utilizes wet chemical synthesis approach, is also described. Some characterization techniques introduced are specific to nanomaterials.
