This journal establishes a dedicated channel for physicists, material scientists, chemists, engineers and computer scientists who are interested in photonic crystals and photonic band gaps. The Journal will help shed light on the latest developments in this growing field of science that will see the emergence of faster telecommunications and ultimately computers that use light instead of electrons to connect components. The Journal features mainly original research work in experiment, theory and applications.
Physica E contains papers and invited review articles on the fundamental and applied aspects of physics in low-dimensional systems, including semiconductor heterostructures, mesoscopic systems, quantum wells and superlattices, two-dimensional electron systems, and quantum wires and dots. Both theoretical and experimental contributions are invited. Topics suitable for publication in this journal include spin related phenomena, optical and transport properties, many-body effects, integer and fractional quantum Hall effects, single electron effects and devices, and other novel phenomena.
Plasmonics publishes peer-reviewed articles that both advance and report on the knowledge and practice of the interactions of free-metal electrons, Plasmons. Coverage includes theory, physics, and applications of surface plasmons in metals, and rapidly emerging areas of nanotechnology, biophotonics, sensing, biochemistry and medicine. The journal covers the theory, synthesis and optical properties of noble metal nanostructures, patterned surfaces, continuous or grated surfaces and devices. Applications include surface-enhanced spectroscopic properties, such as Raman scattering or fluorescence, as well developments in techniques such as surface plasmon resonance and near-field scanning optical microscopy.
Precision Engineering - Journal of the International Societies for Precision Engineering and Nanotechnology is devoted to the multidisciplinary study and practice of high accuracy engineering, metrology, and manufacturing. The journal takes an integrated approach to all subjects related to research, design, manufacture, performance validation, and application of high precision machines, instruments, and components, including fundamental and applied research and development in manufacturing processes, fabrication technology, and advanced measurement science.
This journal publishes review and research articles, and guest edited thematic issues on recent patents in the field of nanotechnology. A selection of important and recent patents on nanotechnology is also included in the journal.
This multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal covers fundamental and applied research in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Scope of the journal includes: all aspects of nanoscale science and technology dealing with materials synthesis, processing, nanofabrication, nanoprobes, spectroscopy, properties, biological systems, nanostructures, theory and computation, nanoelectronics, nano-optics, nano-mechanics, nanodevices, nanobiotechnology, nanomedicine and nanotoxicology.
Science and Technology of Advanced Materials provides an international forum for refereed original contributions and reviews covering all aspects of materials science, including theoretical analysis, synthesis and processing, phase and structure analyses, characterization, properties, engineering and applications. This interdisciplinary journal covers advances in research on solids, liquids and colloids, and issues at the forefront of the field, such as nano-, bio- and ecomaterials.
SAM is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal consolidating research activities in all experimental and theoretical aspects of advanced materials in the fields of science, engineering and medicine including synthesis, fabrication, processing, spectroscopic characterization, physical properties, and applications of all kinds of inorganic and organic materials, metals, semiconductors, superconductors, ceramics, glasses, ferroelectrics, low and high-k dielectrics, sol-gel materials, liquid crystals, biomaterials, organics and polymers, their based electronics, optics, photonics and biological devices.
Scripta Materialia is a LETTERS journal of Acta Materialia, providing a forum for the rapid publication of short communications on the relationship between the structure and the properties of inorganic materials. The emphasis is on originality rather than incremental research. Short reports on the development of materials with novel or substantially improved properties are also welcomed. Emphasis is on either the functional or mechanical behavior of metals, ceramics and semiconductors at all length scales.
Micro and Nano: No Small Matter. Science at the nano- and microscale is currently receiving enormous wordwide interest. Small provides the very best forum for experimental and theoretical studies of fundamental and applied interdisciplinary research at these dimension.
Unlike many journals which focus primarily on individual classes of materials or particular applications, Soft Materials draw on all physical, chemical, materials science, and biological aspects of soft matter. Featured topics include polymers, biomacromolecules, colloids, membranes, Langmuir-Blodgett films, liquid crystals, granular matter, soft interfaces, complex fluids, surfactants, gels, nanomaterials, self-organization, supramolecular science, molecular recognition, soft glasses, amphiphiles, and foams.
This journal covers fundamental and applied research in the field of soft nanoscience, which includes polymers and colloids. This will necessarily address nanostructured polymers (e.g. block copolymers), nanocomposites, physical gels, microemulsions, surface/interface modification, new processes (e.g. electrospinning/spraying), confinement effects, the organic/biological interface, and responsive/functional polymers. Results may be experimental, theoretical or simulation in nature.
