A collection of highly selected, peer-reviewed chapters, this book showcases the research of an international roster of scientists. It covers nanomaterials with emphasis on synthesis, characterization, and applications. It also presents emerging developments in nanotechnology in areas as diverse as medicine, energy, electronics, and agriculture. In addition to engineering aspects, the book discusses the physics, chemistry and biotechnology behind the fabrication and device designing.Jang et al have grown epitaxial (001) BiFeO3 films on (001) STO substrates, which are subjected to a compressive strain due to the lattice mismatch of a1.4%. ... under 450K as well as go through a unique orbital ordering resulting in ferromagnetism at 105K (Atou et. al., 1999). ... with regard to volume in BiMnO3 which can be related to the occurrence of a few percent of Bi vacancies (Gajek at el., 2007).
