The book "Doped Nanomaterials and Nanodevices" summarizes research activities into the fundamental properties and applications of doped nanomaterials. Much attention has been focused on nanomaterials in order to take advantage of their unique properties resulting from quantum size confinement and surface effects. Quantum size confinement affects the energy structure and physical properties of doped nanomaterials and nanodevices. Luminescence phenomena are being investigated extensively in doped nanoparticles, with the hope of finding applications in optical storage, radiation detection, infrared detection, and dosimetry. Near-infrared and upconversion luminescence nanoparticles are particularly promising for biological imaging because auto-fluorescence can be overcome and higher imaging resolutions can be obtained. Doped insulator nanomaterials including carbon nanotubes represent a new type of high-efficiency luminescent material. As a new kind of biological labeling agent, insulator nanoparticles are less toxic than semiconductor nanoparticles and are promising for cancer detection, diagnosis, and treatment. Doped nanomaterials are expected to make significant contributions to nanotechnology for practical applications in the fields of electronics, photonics, optics, homeland security, and medical sciences. The book contains state-of-the-art review chapters focused on different aspects of doped nanomaterials and their based nanodevices. The book has been divided into three volumes.
