Special issue on: "Nanomanufacturing: A Step Towards the Industrialisation of Nanotechnology"

Guest Editors: Dr. Sami S. Habib, Dr. Zishan H. Khan and Dr. Numan A. Salah, King Abdul Aziz University, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

In the past five years, significant strides have been made in the development of nanomanufacturing techniques. Advances in nanomanufacturing in recent years include developments in atomic force manipulation, soft lithography, self assembly processes, sintering, moulding processes, hot embossing, injection moulding, printing, stamping, imprint rolling, etching, plasma etching, ion milling, PVD and CVD deposition of nanostructures, to name but a few.

Therefore, the goal of this special issue is to present the current state-of-the-art in nanomanufacturing and to provide a forum for developing next generation nanomanufacturing processes.

Subject Coverage
The subject coverage of this special issue includes, but is not limited to, topics that address:
  • Fundamental research and developments on nanomanufacturing
  • Applied research and developments on nanomanufacturing processes
  • Applications of fundamental and applied research in nano engineering industries
  • Emerging fields of nanomanufacturing
Research that spans several fields is particularly welcome. In addition, papers presented to the ICON008 session on Nanomanufacturing will also be considered for this special issue. The International Conference on Nanotechnology (ICON008) is being held under the auspices of His Majesty King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz and organized by Center of Nanotechnology at King Abdul Aziz University, Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on 17-19 June 2008.
