Biosensors and Bioelectronics is the principal international journal devoted to research, design, development and application of biosensors and bioelectronics. It is an interdisciplinary journal serving professionals with an interest in the exploitation of biological materials and designs in novel diagnostic and electronic devices including sensors, DNA chips, electronic noses, lab-on-a-chip.
The main objective of this book is to give in-depth understanding of the physical electronics and mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes. In other words, this book is intended to provide a profound knowledge of these electrical and mechanical characteristics allowing the reader to further appreciate the potential and applications of carbon nanotubes. Readers of this book should have a strong background on physical electronics and semiconductor device physics. Philanthropists and readers with strong background in quantum transport physics and semiconductors materials could definitely benefit from the results presented in the chapters of this book. Especially, those with research interests in the areas of nanoparticles and nanotechnology. This book has been outlined as follows: A review on the literature and increasing research interests in the field of carbon nanotubes. Fabrication techniques followed by an analysis on the physical properties of carbon nanotubes. The device physics of implemented carbon nanotubes applications along with proposed models in an effort to describe their behavior in circuits and interconnects. And ultimately, the book pursues a significant amount of work in applications of carbon nanotubes in sensors, nanoparticles and nanostructures, and biotechnology.
Carbon nanotubes are one of the most intriguing new materials with extraordinary properties being discovered in the last decade. The unique structure of carbon nanotubes provides nanotubes with extraordinary mechanical and electrical properties. The outstanding properties that these materials possess have opened new interesting researches areas in nanoscience and nanotechnology. Although nanotubes are very promising in a wide variety of fields, application of individual nanotubes for large scale production has been limited. The main roadblocks, which hinder its use, are limited understanding of its synthesis and electrical properties which lead to difficulty in structure control, existence of impurities, and poor processability. This book makes an attempt to provide indepth study and analysis of various synthesis methods, processing techniques and characterization of carbon nanotubes that will lead to the increased applications of carbon nanotubes.
The field of Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering seeks to understand, so that we may ultimately control, the mechanical, chemical, and electrical processes of the cell. The aims of this journal are to publish experimental and theoretical studies that advance our understanding of (1) the biomechanics of cells, including their interaction with the extracellular environment, and of biomolecules, including proteins, lipids, polysaccharides, and nucleic acids; (2) the chemical thermodynamics, kinetics, and transport processes associated with biomolecular interactions and cellular processes; and (3) electrical processes that underlie cell behavior.
Current Nanoscience publishes authoritative reviews, original research and highlight reports and, written by experts in the field on all the most recent advances in nanoscience and nanotechnology. All aspects of the field are represented including nano- structures, nano-bubbles, nano-droplets, nanofluids, synthesis, properties, assembly and devices. Applications of nanoscience in biotechnology, medicine, pharmaceuticals, physics, material science and electronics are also covered.
The main purpose of this book is to describe important issues in various types of devices ranging from conventional transistors (beginning chapters of the book) to molecular electronic devices whose fabrication and operation is discussed in the last few chapters of the book. As such this book can serve as a guide for identifications of important areas of research in micro, nano and molecular electronics.
A completely electronic Journal for research papers on fundamental theory and experiments at
frontiers of science and technology relating to surfaces, interfaces,
thin films, fine particles, nanowires, nanotubes, and other
nanometer-scale structures, and their interdisciplinary areas such as
crystal growth, vacuum technology, and so on.
This newsletter appears quarterly and provides scientific articles, reports and general information in the field of Nanotechnology and more specifically "Emerging Nanoelectronics". This newsletter will also publish relevant information about Projects funded by the European Commission.
Massimo Marrazzo of Italy-based design firm Biodomotica® has published a new addition to his free e-book on printed flexible electronics. Marrazzo believes that the work of future product designers dealing with flexible electronics will be more akin to fashion and graphic designers, where the focus is on style and concept rather than function.
This book describes some nanowires fabrication by electrodeposition technique and their potential applications. Understanding the design, size dependent properties and working principles of electrodeposited nanowires described here, requires a multidisciplinary background of physics, chemistry, materials science, electrical engineering, or bioengineering.

Emerging Materials Research brings new vision and insight to the field of materials science. Materials Research is constantly evolving and correlations between process, structure, properties and performance which are application specific require expert understanding at the macro-, micro- and nano-scale. Through this journal, editor-in-chief, Professor N. M Ravindra, New Jersey Institute of Technology, USA, invites researchers across science and engineering to identify revolutionary and diverse applications for new and evolving materials.
Originally published in 1986, K. Eric Drexler's Engines of Creation laid the theoretical foundation for the modern field of nanotechnology and articulated the amazing possibilities and dangers associated with engineering at the molecular scale. Unique for both its style and substance, the book is today recognized as the seminal work in nanotechnology and has earned Drexler the title of "Father of Nanotechnology." Engines of Creation 2.0: The Coming Era of Nanotechnology ? Updated and Expanded, is an ebook-only version. In addition to an updated look and feel for the ebook, Engines of Creation 2.0 has been expanded to include the first known lecture on nanotechnology by physicist Richard Feynman, the landmark open letter debate between Dr. Drexler and the late nanotech pioneer and Nobel laureate Dr. Richard Smalley, analysis of the debate by Ray Kurzweil, and a number of new additions by Dr. Drexler, including his advice to aspiring nanotechnologists.
