Under the editorship of Dr. Paola Prete, who obtained her PhD in Physics at the University of Bari in 1991 and was awarded for her outstanding research achievements by the Italian Association of Crystallography (AIC) in 2000, the Journal strives to exceed previous milestones in this dynamic field of research.
“The primary goal of NMNT is to publish research manuscripts that include cutting-edge studies on nanoscale science and technology, bringing together the science and applications of nanoscale and nanostructured materials” underlines Dr. Prete.
Aspiring to raise the stakes and push towards opening new research perspectives has proven to be just the right mood setter to work harder on conquering the first milestone and feed the audience with exceptional material right from the start. When thinking of the potential of researching nanomaterials and nanotechnology in-depth, appliances such as super fast computers, tiny mobile devices or the miniaturization of other Hi-Tech gadgets will be commercialised in a blink of an eye. And the fun is just starting.
Among other, the first issue will feature one of the world’s foremost solid state and materials chemists, scientist Prof. Dr. C.N.R. Rao. In his article Prof. Rao and co-workers focus on one exciting, new and cutting-edge research area, also the subject of the last assigned Nobel Prize in Physics, the two-dimension nanomaterial graphene. As Prof. Dr. C.N.R. Rao and co-workers point out in the article, “ Graphene has generated great sensation owing to its fascinating properties with possible potential applications”. Being graphene researched to substitute silicon chips in computers as the risk of such chips melting is directly proportional to the increase of its speed performances, or considering the immense strength of this nanomaterial that a tiny bit of it could hold the weight of a 4×4 jeep, it is only fair to bet on this Journal to open the gates to a whole new world of possible technologies.
