About Nanomanufacturing


Nanomanufacturing (ISSN 2673-687X) is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes reviews, original research papers, communications, letters, and short notes that are relevant to any field of study involving the fabrication of miniaturized devices or objects, their scalability, and their eventual industrial production. This journal focuses on all aspects of lithographic methods aimed at the submicron- to nanoscale; fabrication and integration of nanostructures, nanomaterials, and surfaces into functional devices; the exploitation and control of self-organization phenomena for patterning; and the further application of the created structures and devices in physical, biomedical, chemistry, environmental science, and life science experiments.
