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.
This journal is devoted to the rapid dissemination of original research papers of relevance to inorganic and metal-organic chemists and nano-scientists engaged in synthesis and characterization of Inorganic, Main Group, Metal-Organic and Nano-Particulate Constructs.
Ultramicroscopy is an established journal that provides a forum for the publication of original research papers, invited reviews and rapid communications. The scope of Ultramicroscopy is to describe advances in instrumentation, methods and theory related to all modes of microscopical imaging, diffraction and spectroscopy in the life and physical sciences.
Bridging the gap between fundamental materials discovery and advances in technology, the journal has a particular focus on the novel functionalities of materials. The journal covers fabrication techniques, unique characteristics of new materials, nanomaterials, composites, metamaterials, magnetic and photonic materials, porous materials, biomaterials, energy materials, photovoltaics, organic electronics, and unusual mechanic properties.
A cutting-edge interdisciplinary forum that combines the most powerful features of online reference works and review journals to provide the most comprehensive coverage of the use of nanotechnology in medicine and the life sciences.
The World Journal of Nano Science and Engineering contains original and innovative research pertaining to the applications of the physical, chemical and biological sciences to engineering at nano scale. The highest priority is given to scientific research that transcends the classical boundaries and introduces cutting-edge frontiers.
