Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Micro- and nano-scale manufacturing is gaining more attention due to production miniaturization and customization. High precision and product quality are difficult to achieve at this length scale; thus, a deeper understanding of the processes, development of characterization methods, modeling and simulations, and monitoring are required for the improvement of product quality and mass scale productivity. This Special Issue of JMMP will focus on advances in micro- and nano-scale manufacturing processes and systems that address the aforementioned requirements. Both theoretical and experimental contributions are welcome. Application-oriented novel manufacturing processes and systems are also of interest.

Specific topics of interest at the micro- and nano-scale include, but are not limited to:

  • Mechanical, nontraditional, additive, and hybrid manufacturing processes and systems
  • Process and system characterization, modeling, and simulations
  • Surface texturing, surface integrity and process improvement
  • Process monitoring and control
  • Measurement and metrology
  • Novel product designs and assembly technologies
  • Design and fabrication methods for micro-sensors
  • Equipment for micro- and nano-scale manufacturing
  • Tip-based manufacturing
  • Composite manufacturing (CNT, graphenes, nanoparticulates, etc.)
  • Use of nano additives and fluids for manufacturing

Flame spray pyrolysis, widely used in chemical industries, is a technology to synthesize nanoparticles. While the flame spray pyrolysis uses fuels as a solution liquid, the flame-assisted spray pyrolysis method uses aqueous solutions. Since process parameters such as concentration of precursor, size of droplets, and ratio of the air–gas mixture affect the size of nanoparticles, developing a flexible system to control these parameters is required. This paper proposes a new type of nozzle system to produce nanoparticles using flame-assisted spray pyrolysis. The annular nozzle design allows flexible control of particle flow and temperature, and an ultrasonic nebulizer was used to produce droplets with different size. Experiments were conducted to analyze the relationship between nanoparticle size and process parameters, concentration of precursor, frequency of the atomizer, and flame temperature. A precursor solution consisting of silver nitrate (AgNO3) mixed in deionized water is used. The effects of the process parameters are discussed, and analysis of the nanoparticles shows that silver nanoparticles are deposited with an average size of 25~115 nm. Full article
