The IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology seek original manuscripts for a Special Section on Nanotechnology for Instrumentation and Measurement

Background and Scope
Instrumentation and measurement are of importance when characterizing, testing and employing novel
devices and materials. These areas assume a particular importance at the “nano” scales in which electrical
and physical quantities encounter new challenges. The proposed special section will be comprised of high
impact papers with particular emphasis on the application area of instrumentation and measurement and
its relation to nanotechnology. Original research contributions and review papers, not limited to the ones
presented at nanofim2015, are sought including (but not limited to) the following topics:

• General and dedicated devices
• Nanoimaging
• Metrology, reliability and testing
• Nanotechnology and plasma
• Environmental applications
• Automotive
• Nanomedicine
• Nanoptics and Nanophotonics
• Networking
• Bio-molecular and Biotechnology
• Aeronautics and aerospace
• Fabrication and characterization of sensors and transducers
• Signal and image processing
• General and ad hoc instrumentation
• Biomedical applications
• Industrial applications
• Mechatronics
• Light and lightning
• Packaging and Nanomaterials
• Modeling
• Energy

Submission Format

Extended versions of accepted and presented papers at Nanofim2015 ( are
encouraged but they will still undergo the peer review process; authors for this Special Section are requested
to expand the workshop version to contain at least 40% new material. All manuscripts must be submitted on-
line using the IEEE TNANO manuscript template and Information for Authors, via the IEEE Manuscript
Central found at On submission, authors must select the “Special Issue” manuscript type instead of “Regular Paper.” Manuscripts must focus on nanotechnology for
instrumentation and measurement as reflected by technical content and references.
