Magnetic, electronic, optical and structural properties of nanomaterials

Nanoscience and nanotechnology have become commonplace in many emerging technologies, including magnetics, electronics, photonics, biomaterials, medicine, ultrafiltration, as well as energy collection and storage. The field provides huge potential to benefit diverse areas, such as drug development, water filtration and decontamination, information and communication technologies, and the production of  new materials with superior optical, electrical, magnetic, and mechanical properties. Over the past 4 decades, techniques to achieve structures at the nanoscale have become increasingly more advanced and effective. However, the hope for further reduction in feature sizes, as well as the ease of fabrication beyond those provided by conventional fabrication techniques, has prompted the exploration of novel techniques and strategies.
