Low-dimensional solids are of fundamental interest in materials science due to their anisotropic properties. Written not only for experts in the field, this book explains the important concepts behind their physics and surveys the most interesting one-dimensional systems and discusses their present and emerging applications in molecular scale electronics. Chemists, polymer and materials scientists as well as students will find this book a very readable introduction to the solid-state physics of electronic materials.
In this completely revised and expanded third edition the authors also cover graphene as one of the most important research topics in the field of low dimensional materials for electronic applications. In addition, the topics of nanotubes and nanoribbons are widely enlarged to reflect the research advances of the last years.

Siegmar Roth is founding director of Sineurop Nanotech GmbH Stuttgart, Germany, a company synthesizing carbon nanotubes, graphene and related materials. He has obtained his PhD in Physics at the University of Vienna, Austria, and his Habilitation at the University of Karlsruhe, Germany. After some years at Siemens in Erlangen, Germany, he joined the Institut Laue Langevin and later on the High Field Magnet Lab in Grenoble, from where he moved to Stuttgart to become leader of the Research Group on Synthetic Nanostructures at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research. Between 2009 and 2012 he was visiting professor at the School of Electrical Engineering of Korea University.
David L. Carroll is professor at the Wake Forest University. He is a trained materials scientist and received his PhD from Wesleyan University, Middletown, USA. After a stay as postdoctoral fellow at the department of materials science and engineering, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia from 1993-1995, he joined the Max-Planck-Institute for solid state research in Stuttgart, Germany. In 1997 he became Assistant Professor at Clemson University and 2001 Associate Professor. He moved with his group to Wake Forest University in 2003, where he founded the Center for Nanotechnology and Molecular Materials.
"Students seeking to develop a rigorous scientific foundation for an in-depth understanding of one-dimensional metals will need to read the supporting references. Researchers seeking guidance to the current literature and clarification of concepts will find it adequate for some topics..."

"The book is successful in providing a general idea about one-dimensional metals and very nicely covers the basics and application part. The whole book is written in a very readable style, with lot of figures and cartoon presentations, which makes both reading a good pleasure and easy to understand."
