    The center for Nanotechnology, Materials Science, and Microsystems (CNMM) at the National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) was established in 2006, founded by the National Science Council (NSC). It consists of three parts, including core-facility clean rooms, the Nanomeasurement Laboratory, and a metallurgical factory. They work synergjstically to serve faculties, graduate students, and scientists with... View full abstract»

    New SERS active substrates were successfully prepared for the identification of Staphylococcus aureus and R6G. The surface-enhancement effect by the substrates enables rapid identification of bacteria and chemical species. The enhancement capability can be controlled by tuning the surface roughness of the substrates through varying treatment durations. View full abstract»

    The optical tweezer, with the ability to apply force and deformation on a micro scaled object on the order of piconewton (pN, 10~12 N) and nanometer (nm, 10~9 m), is utilized in this study to manipulate primitive myeloblasts from acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients for biomechanical properties characterization. Mcrobeads are attached to cell surfaces serving as handles. Cells are stretched by mo... View full abstract»

    As the feature size of interconnect technology continues to scale down to nanometer sizes, the state-of-the-art Cu interconnect is expected to run into its physical limit in the near future. Carrier scattering at surfaces and grain boundaries leads to a dramatic increase of Cu resistivity at the nanoscale, resulting increasing resistance capacitance signal delay. The Cu interconnect is becoming mo... 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.
