Section 4

Question Answer
Three distinct features of nanoscale materialssize (or volume) effects, surface effects, interaction between domains
What makes size unique?size of clusters, grains (or particle) is on the order of a characteristic length scale of a physical phnomenon; also has an impact on the fundamental structure of materials
What makes surface effects unique?significant fraction of atoms contained in surface or interface regions like layered fimls or nanocrystalline materials; surfaces and interfaces play a major role in the fundamental structure and stability
What makes interaction between domains unique?structural interaction across interfaces; remote interactions like arrays of quantum dots
