    In the past few decades, thousands of nanorelated products have been produced, and the volume of nanotechnology literature has increased tremendously. At the same time, the influence of nanotechnology on environment, health, and safety (EHS) issues has become a concern. The United States and the European Union (EU), as well as international organizations such as the International Organization for ... View full abstract»

    The electric knife is one of the indispensable surgical devices widely used in surgical operation. However, it has not been remarkably improved since its invention several decades ago. For example, thermal damage of the current radiofrequency electric knife, which is one of the most nonintrusive type of electric knives, is more than several hundred micrometers. A laser device, which was invented a... 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.
