    Inorganic materials in the form of thin films are ubiquitous in various applications. In the last two to three decades, the research community and industry have grown thin films of silicon, germanium, III-V compounds, various oxides, nitrides, antimonides, metals, and dielectrics using techniques such as chemical vapor deposition (CVD), metal organic CVD (MOCVD), and molecular beam epitaxy (MBE). ...

    Few technologies on the near-term horizon offer the potential for game-changing results as do CNT products. In an age where the state of the art in global defense, transportation, and energy depends on meaningful advancement and delivery of novel materials, it is critical to view scalability to be as important as product performance itself. To date, few nanotechnology manufacturers have solved the... View full abstract»

    Limitations of dielectrophoretic (DEP) assembly for gold particles and optical dielectrophoretic (ODEP) manipulation of spherical particles are theoretically analyzed in this article. The results in the "Gold Nanoparticle Assembly" section reveal that the core-shell sphere polarization model is effective for characterizing the frequency-dependent mechanism of DEP manipulation, which concludes that...

    Solder paste is a homogeneous and kinetically stable mixture of solder alloy powder, flux, and vehicle, which is capable of forming metallurgical bonds at a given soldering condition. The thermal properties of tin/silver/copper (SnAgCu) alloy nanoparticles of different sizes were studied by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The particle size-dependent melting point and latent heat of fusion... View full abstract»

    In the previous issue, I focused on R&D trends and also referred to concerns regarding the United States and the importance of maintaining steady funding by the public and private sectors for emerging technologies such as nanotech. The overall R&D funding climate is always a leading indicator of future innovation activity, and delays or reductions can spread out the time necessary to bring... View full abstract»

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.
