    Scanning probe microscopy (SPM) analysis of materials is reliant upon direct physical interaction between a scanning probe and a sample surface. This physical interaction provides a range of analysis and surface modification techniques that are unique in microscopy and offers particular advantages and limitations. Precise computer-controlled positioning capabilities of SPM instrumentation continue... View full abstract»

    Carbon nanotube (CNT) bundles are extremely interesting for engineering applications because of their density, elastic modulus, and mechanical strength. In particular, ambitious structures such as space elevators or superbridges (i.e., kilometer-long suspended bridges) could be conceived by exploiting the unique properties provided by CNT technology.Many experimental studies exist for the evaluati...

    The vision of GT-PRC's 3D systems is to go beyond 3D ICs to miniaturize the entire electronic or bioelectronic system components to nanoscale, such as passive components, system interconnections, thermal structures, and power supplies. Recent advances in the synthesis of nanomaterials with outstanding properties combined with novel processing technologies can lead to highly miniaturized, highly fu... View full abstract»

    In the September 2008 issue of IEEE Nanotechnology Magazine, I wrote an article discussing why we might not achieve a nanotechnology gold rush without the development of standards. My message was very simple: standards are needed to achieve a high degree of interoperability, create order in the marketplace, simplify production requirements, manage the potential for adverse environmental impacts, a...

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.
