    Nanoelectrode ensemble (NEE) films have attracted increasing interest in recent years due to their unique combination of electrochemical (EC) characteristics, including ultrafast electron transfer reactions, high signal-to-noise (S/N) ratios, and enhanced detection sensitivity [1]-[3]. NEEs are nanotechology-based electroanalytical tools that find application in a variety of fields ranging from se... View full abstract»

    Progress has been made to increase awareness and funding to investigate worker exposure during the nanotechnology production process; however, compliance with widely accepted safety procedures for nanoworkers has yet to be fully realized [7]. The call for further emphasis on this topic was raised by the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies (2012) and also in a recent article in IEEE Nanotechnology... View full abstract»

    In this article, We focus on silicon nanowire (SiNW)-based resonators that were fabricated and employed to sense aerosol nanoparticles (NPs) by measuring resonant frequency shifts induced by the mass of stuck NPs. The fabrication of SiNW arrays was performed using inductively coupled plasma (ICP) cryogenic dry etching and multiple thermal oxidations. The SiNWs were coated with gold (Au) for contac...

    We present a silicon nanofin (Si-NF) that can be actuated bidirectionally by electrostatic force between two contact surfaces. The switch is able to maintain its contact leveraging on van der Waals force, which holds the Si-NF to either terminal without an on-hold bias, thus exhibiting bistable hysteresis behavior. The measured pull-in voltage (VPI) and reset voltage (VRESET) are 10 and -12 V, res... 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.
