The journal concentrates on the materials and technologies associated with nanotechnology?s place in the man-made background that we live in. Among others, we cover the properties of new or modified nanomaterials, their synthesis, their energy efficiency and cost, the impact of such technologies on the environment, and theoretical models of such materials.
Nanotechnology Law & Business (NLB) is entirely devoted to the legal, business, and policy aspects of nanotechnology and more generally small scale technologies. The journal addresses patent prosecution and litigation, venture financing of start-up companies, legislative and regulatory initiatives
Nanotechnology Weekly brings together in one publication the broad spectrum of new research being done in nanotechnology, or the science of the very small. Reports include biotechnology, materials science, fluid mechanics, alloys and compounds, composite materials, polymers and physical chemistry.
The journal is characterized by the rapid reporting of reviews, original research, and application studies across all sectors, including engineering, optics, bio-medicine, cosmetics, textiles, resource sustainability and science. Applied research into nano-materials, particles, nano-structures and fabrication, diagnostics and analytics, drug delivery and toxicology constitute the primary direction of the journal.
Nanotoxicology invites contributions addressing research relating to the potential for human and environmental exposure, hazard and risk associated with the use and development of nano-structured materials.
Nanotube Therapy is focused on the chemistry, biology, and engineering involved in the application of nanotube technology for the improvement of human health. Material properties, novel devices, in vitro, in vivo, and clinical studies are all within the scope of the journal.
This volume is intended to orient the reader in the fast developing field of semiconductor nanowires, by providing a series of self-contained monographs focusing on various nanowire-related topics. Each monograph serves as a short review of previous results in the literature and description of methods used in the field, as well as a summary of the authors recent achievements on the subject. Each report provides a brief sketch of the historical background behind, the physical and/or chemical principles underlying a specific nanowire fabrication/characterization technique, or the experimental/theoretical methods used to study a given nanowire property or device.
Understanding and building up the foundation of nanowire concept is a high requirement and a bridge to new technologies. Any attempt in such direction is considered as one step forward in the challenge of advanced nanotechnology. In the last few years, InTech scientific publisher has been taking the initiative of helping worldwide scientists to share and improve the methods and the nanowire technology. This book is one of InTech?s attempts to contribute to the promotion of this technology.
This potentially unique work offers various approaches on the implementation of nanowires. As it is widely known, nanotechnology presents the control of matter at the nanoscale and nanodimensions within few nanometers, whereas this exclusive phenomenon enables us to determine novel applications. This book presents an overview of recent and current nanowire application and implementation research worldwide. We examine methods of nanowire synthesis, types of materials used, and applications associated with nanowire research. Wide surveys of global activities in nanowire research are presented, as well.
