Aims and Scope

The Nanotechnology section of the journal Current Chinese Science publishes original research articles, letters, reviews/mini- reviews, case reports and guest edited thematic issues on various topics related to nanotechnology. Articles may be focused largely, but not exclusively, on contributions from China.


This section is not limited to a specific aspect of the field but is instead devoted to a wide range of sub fields in the area. Articles of interdisciplinary nature are particularly welcome. Submissions in the following nanotechnology areas are of special interest to the readers of this journal:


  • • Nanobiotechnology
  • • Nanoelectronics and molecular electronics
  • • Nanofluidics
  • • Nanomagnetics
  • • Nanomedicine
  • • Nano-optics
  • • Nano-optoelectronics
  • • Nano-photonics
  • • Nanoscale modeling and simulations
  • • Nanoscale physics, electrical transport, quantum physics
  • • Nanosensors
  • • Nanotoxicology
  • • Scanning probe microscopy and spectroscopy
  • • Synthesis, characterization and manipulation of nanomaterials
  • • Others
