    The term solar cell usually brings photovoltaics to mind. Indeed, the direct conversion of sunlight to electricity has dominated the realm of solar-energy harvesting for the past 50 years. However, researchers have now begun to re-evaluate the possibilities of thermionic and thermoelectric energy conversion because of some of their attractive features. These processes involve the conversion of hea... View full abstract»

    The economic growth in many parts of the world during the past decade was sustainable because of affordable energy prices. The dependence on oil and electricity has made energy a vital component of our energy needs. In the 20th century, the population quadrupled, and our energy demand increased by 16 times. The exponential energy demand is exhausting our fossil fuel supply at an alarming rate. Abo... View full abstract»

    The rising global energy demand has stressed the need to develop and implement novel materials and methods for sustainably harvesting, conserving, and using energy. The ability to control the interconversion of energy from one form to another with a high rate and efficiency at low cost is essential. Electrochemistry is a fundamental science to study the conversion between electrical and chemical e... View full abstract»

    In this article, we discuss the fabrication and characterization of a 32-channel array of single-walled carbon nanotube thin film (SWCNT-TF) chemiresistor sensors. By simply varying the SWCNT-TF device geometry from a length-to-width (L/W) ratio of 1.5:1-15:1, the device switching characteristics were tuned, which provided a unique platform for the investigation of analyte-dependent sensing mechan...

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.
