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.
Silver nanoparticles have unique optical, electrical and biological properties that have attracted significant attention due to their potential use in many applications, such as catalysis, biosensing, drug delivery and nanodevice fabrication. This book highlights scientific advancements and recent applications of silver nanoparticles nanotechnology with a key focus on nanocomposite coatings and advanced characterization techniques. "Silver nanoparticles" is a collection of seventeen chapters written by experts in their respective fields. These reviews are representative of the current research areas in silver nanoparticle nanoscience and nanotechnology.
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.
Small Methods focuses on significant advances in any and all methods applicable to nano- and microscale research from all areas of materials science, biomedical science, chemistry, and physics, featuring cutting-edge developments in experimental techniques.
Smart Materials and Structures is a multi-disciplinary journal dedicated to technical advances in (and applications of) smart materials, systems and structures; including intelligent systems, sensing and actuation, adaptive structures, and active control.
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.
Spin electronics is a rapidly emerging field which is based on taking advantage of the unique properties of the spin of the electron, the nucleus and other fundamental particles, as well as that of the photon. Spin electronics has special importance as conventional electronics reaches its physical limitations. SPIN aims to provide a forum for the presentation of research and review articles of interest to all researchers in the field.
Superlattices and Microstructures is a journal devoted to the dissemination of the science and technology of synthetic heterostructures, including individual and collective use of semiconductors, metals and insulators for the exploitation of their unique properties.
