Abstract

Nanoparticles, nanotubes, nanobelts, nanoneedles, nanosheets, nanowires, nanopillars: the variety of nanostructured interfaces that can be created and modified using plasma processes is virtually endless. This is great news for modern technologies because plasma-generated nanomaterials have unique properties that can benefit many industrial fields, ranging from electronics and photonics to medicine and biology. Using versatile plasma techniques to produce nanoengineered structures has many advantages over other conventional methods. This stems from the fact that plasma processes are environmentally friendly and time-efficient, capable of creating unique materials unachievable by other means. Plasma processes are also readily scalable and transferable to industrial use. In recent years, proactive approaches in this field have led to breakthroughs in plasma nanofabrication, generating nanoengineered materials with properties that could not be equaled via other techniques such as self-assembly or classic lithography.
