    Particulate air pollution comprising inhalable particles with dp les 10 mum is an important determinant of the severity of the overall air pollution level. Among these, the airborne UFPs and NPs with d les 0.1 - 0.3 mum form a particular class of particles because of recent insights that the particle toxicity per unit particle mass is inversely proportional to the particle size. The tox... View full abstract»

    This article reveals how moving from bulk materials to the nanoscale can significantly change device performance for energy storage and conversion. The development of high-performance Li-ion batteries can benefit from the distinct properties of nanomaterials, such as high surface areas, short diffusion paths, and a large quantity of active sites, as well as freedom for volume change during chargin...

    Microtechnology or microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) is a viable and promising method to facilitate such highly compact power sources through the integration of a fuel cell with all operation units of a fuel processor. Using microtechnology to process high-density hydrocarbon fuels appears to be an encouraging method to supply hydrogen fuel for feeding portable fuel cells. In addition, microte...

    Ecological awareness is all important for our environment. How to transfer the waste heat to electric power from exhaust pipes is discussed, which might serve to decrease the consumption of petroleum. We have presented a model of a thermal resistor network to estimate the power generated with thermoelectric generator (TEG) modules and investigated a concept of harvesting waste heat with TEG in aut...

    Simulation tools as part of a virtual prototyping environment enable scientists and design engineers to answer "what-if" questions before actual costly experimentation and physical prototyping. Over the last 40 years, there has been an explosion in the use of simulation tools to predict electrical, thermal, and mechanical behavior of materials and the reliability of devices that contain microsyste...

Aims & Scope

The scope of  IEEE Nanotechnology Magazine is all aspects of nanotechnology including theory, analysis, design, implementation, and applications related to creation of materials, devices, structures, etc. by manipulating matter at the nanometer length scale and taking advantage of novel (physical, chemical, electrical, mechanical, optical, magnetic, biological) properties which arise solely due to the nanometer scale. Contents are written at a general level aimed at a broad audience. The magazine publishes articles covering new research and developments toward a broad audience, tutorials, and surveys in the field of nanotechnology in addition to industry news, research news, education news, policy news, opinion pieces, book reviews, updates on people, introduction to new tools and techniques, funding and meetings news, patent summary, and commercialization.
