Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A special issue of Nanomaterials will discuss “New Developments in Nanomaterial Analysis.” Both the development of new instrumentation and the application of established characterization techniques to the nanometer realm are of interest, as they advance the studies of nanomaterials. Topics can include characterization, analysis, modeling, and modification studies on various types of nanomaterials, including organic, inorganic, hybrid, and biological ones. We invite submissions of original research articles or comprehensive reviews on, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Novel characterization techniques applied to nanomaterials
  • Scanning probe microscopy, including scanning tunneling microscopy, atomic force microscopy, and near-field optical microscopy, of nanomaterials
  • Electron microscopy, including transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and low energy electron microscopy, of nanomaterials
  • Optical studies, including fluorescence and single-molecule techniques, of nanomaterials
  • X-ray microscopy and spectroscopy of nanomaterials
  • Nanoparticles used as imaging probes
  • Modeling nanomaterials
  • Manipulating and modifying nanomaterials
