Plasma Nanoscience : from nature's mastery to deterministic plasma-aided nanofabrication
Ostrikov, K. (2007) Plasma Nanoscience : from nature's mastery to deterministic plasma-aided nanofabrication. IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science, 35(2), pp. 127-136.
This paper introduces the plasma-nanoscience research area and shows the way from Nature's mastery in assembling nanosized dust grains in the Universe to deterministic plasma-aided nanofabrication. The concept of deterministic nanoassembly is explained, and the multidisciplinary approach to bridge the spatial gap of nine orders of magnitude between the sizes of plasma reactors and atomic building units is discussed. Ongoing numerical simulation and experimental efforts on highly controlled synthesis of carbon nanotip and semiconducting quantum-dot structures show potential benefits of using ionized-gas environments in nanofabrication. © 2007 IEEE.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
