Plasmonic Effects In Metal-semiconductor Nanostructures

Metal-semiconductor nanostructures represent an important new class of materials employed in designing advanced optoelectronic and nanophotonic devices, such as plasmonic nanolasers, plasmon-enhanced light-emitting diodes and solar cells, plasmonic emitters of single photons, and quantum devices operating in infrared and terahertz domains. The combination of surface plasmon resonances in conducting structures, providing strong concentration of an electromagnetic optical field nearby, with sharp optical resonances in semiconductors, which are highly sensitive to external electromagnetic fields, creates a platform to control light on the nanoscale. The design of the composite metal-semiconductor system imposes the consideration of both the plasmonic resonances in metal and the optical transitions in semiconductors - a key issue being their resonant interaction providing a coupling regime.

In this book the reader will find descriptions of electrodynamics of conducting structures, quantum physics of semiconductor nanostructures, and guidelines for advanced engineering of metal-semiconductor composites. These constituents form together the physical basics of the metal-semiconductor plasmonics, underlying many effective practical applications. The list of covered topics also includes the review of recent results, such as the achievement of a strong coupling regime, and the preservation of non-classical statistics of photons in plasmonic cavities combined with semiconductor nanostructures.

This collection presents the papers presented in the symposium on extraction of rare metals as well as rare extraction processing techniques used in metal production. Paper topics include the extraction and processing of elements like antimony, arsenic, calcium, chromium, hafnium, gold, indium, lithium, molybdenum, niobium, rare earth metals, rhenium, scandium, selenium, silver, strontium, tantalum, tellurium, tin, tungsten, vanadium, and zirconium. Rare processing techniques presented include bio leaching, molecular recognition technology, recovery of valuable components of commodity metals such as magnesium from laterite process wastes, titanium from ilmenites, and rare metals from wastes such as phosphors and LCD monitors.

An excerpt from -New Technical Books, Vol. 1 [1915]:

Johnstone, Sydney J. The rare earth industry, including the manufacture of incandescent mantles, pyrophoric alloys, and electrical glow lamps. Together with a chapter on the industry of radioactive substances, by Alexander S. Russell ... London: Crosby Lockwood & Son, 1915. xii, 136 p. illus. 4°. (Manuals of chemical technology, no. 2.)

"The importance at the present time of the rare earths and radioactive substances can hardly be over-estimated. Out of their technical utilisation most important industries have recently arisen, the whole subject of gas and electrical lighting has been revolutionised, the match industry has been attacked, while certain branches of surgery and medicine have entirely changed their course within a few years. With the advent of the rarer elements into technology, moreover, has dated the discovery of a whole series of very remarkable steels, which have again reacted on the engineering industries, and on the progress of invention in a way which at present it is difficult to adequately estimate."-From the preface.

This is a practical, well illustrated treatise dealing less with the pure chemistry of rare earths than with their industrial applications. There are numerous bibliographical and patent references.

Reviewed in Engineering and Mining Journal, Nov. 20, 1915; in Mining Magazine, Sept., 1915; inElectrical Engineering, Sept. 30, 1915; in Engineer, Nov. 12, 1915, p. 461.


Comprehensive Organometallic Chemistry Ii

RRP $676.00

The individual chapters in this volume cover the scope and impact of main group organometallic compounds and reagents on organic synthesis during the last ten to fifteen years. In a number of chapters, topics are dealt with in detail that either were not covered at all in "COMC" (eg selenium, tellurium) or were given scant attention (eg oxymercuration, organoantimony compounds). Certain topics, like directed metallation and LiKOR bases have only achieved prominence in synthesis in the last ten years, and are now reviewed by leading experts.
