    With greater knowledge comes greater responsibility and greater liability. When it comes to nanotechnology, our ability to understand the potential risks is unprecedented, thanks in part to the asbestos mass tort experience. If the nanotechnology industry wants to avoid a similar catastrophe, the lessons of the asbestos litigation should be heeded now. View full abstract»

    We will examine the mobility and high-field velocity in graphene placed upon various substrates, such as boron nitride (BN), silicon carbide (SiC), or silicon dioxide (SiO2). The transport is subject to the intrinsic phonons in graphene as well as flexural modes, but it is the remote polar modes from the substrate and impurities sited between the substrate layer and graphene that domina...

    This article describes the development of an inexpensive but robust and easy-to-use point-of-care diagnostic device that can be used for the detection of dengue fever at the molecular level (i.e., the detection of dengue virus using a piece of paper). To date, the clinical diagnosis of dengue fever mainly relies on enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay-based examinations for a specific antigen. Howeve... 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.
