Probably the leading team that is driving forward the work on nanogenerators for converting mechanical energy into electricity is Zhong Lin Wang's group at Georgia Tech. So far, we have covered their exciting work in at least half a dozen Nanowerk Spotlights about nanopiezotronics and nanogenerators. To provide a comprehensive and coherent review about the development of nanogeneratos, Wang, Distinguished Professor and Director, Center for Nanostructure Characterization, has organized this book mainly based on our published papers to provide a coherent coverage about the nanogenerators from fundamental materials, basic physics principles and theory, scientific approach, engineering-scale up and technological applications, so that readers can get a full picture about the development of this technology. The entire 139-page book is composed of 11 chapters with hundreds of figures.
The magazine Nanoindustriya supports and promotes original works of domestic and Russian-speaking foreign specialists, introduces readers to the perspectives of development of new areas of nanotechnology and nanomaterials.

The journal brings together research from scientists and engineers working at the juncture of nanomaterials and energy, helping identify new and ever more efficient energy sources with a cost-benefit focus.
The aim of the journal is to publish peer-reviewed papers at the forefront of nanoscale science and technology, bringing together the science and applications of nanoscale and nanostructured materials with an emphasis on the synthesis, processing, characterization, and applications of materials containing nanometric dimensions or nanostructures that enable novel/enhanced properties or functions. The journal will highlight continued growth and new challenges in the nanotechnology field, both for application development and for basic research.
Nanomaterials and the Environment (NATE) exists to serve the needs of this diverse community, providing a forum for the prompt communication of original and innovative developments in nanomaterials and the environment, and in an effort to improve their utilisation and safety. NATE covers, but is not limited to, the development and use of nanoparticles, nanomaterials and nanocomposite devices in environmental applications for water, soil and air decontamination, as environmental monitoring devices, and their use in civil engineering and built environment applications.
The book series Nanomaterials for the Life Sciences, successor to the highly acclaimed series Nanotechnology for the Life Sciences, provides an in-depth overview of all nanomaterial types and their uses in the life sciences. Each volume is dedicated to a specific material class and covers fundamentals, synthesis and characterization strategies, structure-property relationships and biomedical applications.
Contributions to the journal consist of research on nano- and micro- flows and thermal energy transfer in equipment, thermal systems, and applied thermodynamic processes in the nano- and micro- fields of mechanical engineering and related industries. Theory and fundamental research in fluids and solids in nano - field are appropriate for the journal, as work on mass, charge and energy transfer in all kinds of applied problems with long-term, archival goals.
Nanomedicine addresses the important challenges and advances in medical nanoscale-structured materials and devices, biotechnology devices and molecular machine systems and nanorobotics, delivering this essential information in concise, clear and attractive article formats, a valuable information source for all players in the field and across the scientific community.
Nanomedicine publishes basic, clinical, and engineering research in the innovative field of nanomedicine. Article categories include basic nanomedicine, diagnostic nanomedicine, experimental nanomedicine, clinical nanomedicine, and engineering nanomedicine, pharmacological nanomedicine.
The primary goal of this peer-reviewed journal is to dissipate the newest results of nanotechnological research. Experimental as well as theoretical contributions are considered. Works which may promote the transfer of new scientific results to application-oriented development are especially welcome. It is anticipated that revealing structure-property relationships and developing novel materials and methods will help in achieving this goal.
This quarterly, peer reviewed journal covers the basic science and engineering of nanoscale and microscale energy conversion, transport, storage, mass transport, and reactions. In addition, the journal addresses their integration and uses in devices and systems in the fields of medicine, transportation, energy, environment, and information.
