HORIBA Scientific Applications Scientist Authors/Edits New Book on Nanotechnology

24 July 2014


Book focuses on principles and applications of photoluminescence in the nanoscale semiconductor field

HORIBA Scientific, global leader in Raman and Fluorescence spectroscopy systems, is proud to announce that Adam Gilmore, Applications Scientist in Fluorescence, is the author of a new book entitled, “Luminescence: The Instrumental Key to the Future of Nanotechnology.”

The new book, published by Pan Stanford Publishing, presents an overview of modern photoluminescence instruments, techniques, applications and data analysis. Broken into three sections, the first offers a comprehensive introduction to photophysics, instruments and methodologies of nanomaterial luminescence. The two remaining sections include research from industry experts who have impacted, or will impact, today’s world. 

Chapters delve into the following topics:

  • Important Spectral and Polarized Properties of Semiconducting SWNT Photoluminescence
  • Advanced Aspects of Photoluminescence Instrumentation for Carbon Nanotubes
  • Developments in Catalytic Methodology for (n,m) Selective Synthesis of SWNTs
  • Single-Walled Carbon Nanotube Thin-Film Electronics
  • Single-Walled Carbon Nanotube-Based Solution-Processed Organic Optoelectronic Devices
  • Exciton Energy Transfer in Carbon Nanotubes Probed by Photoluminescence
  • Advances in Dispersal Agents and Methodology for SWNT Analysis
  • Time Domain Luminescence Instrumentation
  • Key Approaches to Linking Nanoparticle Metrology and Photoluminescence
  • Nanometer-Scale Measurements Using FRET and FLIM Microscopy
  • Cancer Detection and Biosensing Applications with Quantum Dots
  • Zinc Oxide Nanoparticles in Biosensing Applications
  • Use of QDOT Photoluminescence for Codification and Authentication Purposes
  • Characterization Approaches for Blue and White Phosphorescent OLEDs

“It is a great honor to collaborate with Dr. Adam Gilmore on his latest comprehensive book on Luminescence,” said Stanford Chong, Director and Publisher of Pan Stanford Publishing. “Filled with 143 illustrations in 404 pages, the book strengthens our objective to further promote key scientific developments worldwide in various formats ranging from print to electronic. Written in an approachable manner, the book is designed to inspire students and new scientists into the field.”

“This book grows out of Dr. Adam Gilmore’s recognition by the community as a leader in the development of optical analysis methods for nanomaterials,” said Ishai Nir, Director of HORIBA’s Fluorescence Division. “His standing has allowed him to gather contributions from the innovators in the field, and has resulted in what will be the definitive reference on the subject for years to come.”

Pan Stanford is offering an introductory offer to HORIBA Scientific’s nanotechnology community for a 20% discount on the purchase of the book.  Information on the book and this offer can be found at: http://www.crcpress.com/product/isbn/9789814241953
