Nano-Micro Letters (NML) is an online Open Access journal that emphasizes the bottom-up approach in the length scale from Nano to Micro. The key for nanotechnology to reach industrial applications is to assemble, to modify, and to control the nanostructures in the Micro scale. NML aims to provide a publishing platform crossing the boundaries, from Nano to Micro, and from science to technology.
Topics are: Diagnosis of diseases including cancer, cardiovascular, infectious diseases; Molecular modelling in diagnosis; Enzyme and membrane technologies; Quantum dot fluorescence technologies for monitoring toxins and pathogens.
This book contains 16 chapters. In the first part, there are 8 chapters describing new materials and analytic methods. These materials include chapters on gold nanoparticles and Sol-Gel metal oxides, nanocomposites with carbon nanotubes, methods of evaluation by depth sensing, and other methods. The second part contains 3 chapters featuring new materials with unique properties including optical non-linearities, new materials based on pulp fibers, and the properties of nano-filled polymers. The last part contains 5 chapters with applications of new materials for medical devices, anodes for lithium batteries, electroceramics, phase change materials and matrix active nanoparticles.

This book is a result of contributions of experts from international scientific community working in different areas and types of nanofibers. The book thoroughly covers latest topics on different varieties of nanofibers. It provides an up-to-date insightful coverage to the synthesis, characterization, functional properties and potential device applications of nanofibers in specialized areas.
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 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.
This is an annual publication of original research conducted by undergraduates from around the county. The journal disseminates the results of undergraduate research in the broad fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Nanoscape is an educational outreach project of the Northwestern University Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC), which is part of the International Institute for Nanotechnology (IIN), both of which are under the direction of Professor Chad A. Mirkin.
