Micro/Nanoscale Manufacture of Advanced Materials and an Exploration of Their Properties

Description

Microscale and nanoscale manufacturing of advanced materials are rapidly expanding fields. In the past several decades, the limits of manufacturing have been constantly pushed towards ever narrower scales, owing to the escalating need for integrating more functioning units within increasingly smaller scales.

Microscale manufacturing includes the production of ultrafine sensors, actuators, wafers, and chips. This is already an extensive field, because of the widespread use of microelectronic fabrication techniques and the large markets it serves in computing, communications, and information storage devices.

Nanoscale manufacturing is another area of growing importance that includes research, development, and integration of top-down, bottom-up, or self-assembly processes.

The aim of this special issue is to provide a collection of theoretical and experimental state-of-the-art work on micro/nanoscale manufacturing of advanced materials. All relevant experimental work, atomistic/molecular simulations and theoretical analyses will be considered in this special issue. We invite researchers to contribute original research or review articles that relate to the proposed fields.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Top-down micro/nanoscale fabrication of advanced materials via processes such as the following
    • Nanoimprint lithography
    • Micro/nanoscale patterning
    • Etching
    • Bulk micromachining
    • Laser and other high energy beam fabrication
  • Bottom-up micro/nanoscale fabrication of advanced materials via processes such as the following
    • Deposition
    • Self-assembly
    • 3D printing
  • An exploration of the correlation between the manufacturing techniques and the physical properties of fabricated materials
