A special issue of International Journal of Nanomanufacturing
In the past ten years, significant strides have been made in the development of micro and nanomanufacturing techniques. Advances in micro and nanofabrication in recent years include developments in atomic force manipulation, soft lithography, self assembly processes, sintering, micromachining, microcasting, molding processes, hot embossing, injection molding, printing, stamping, imprint rolling, etching, plasma etching, ion milling, PVD and CVD deposition of micro and nanostructures, to name but a few.
Therefore, the goal of this special issue is to publish the current state-of-the-art in micro and nanomanufacturing and to provide a forum for developing next generation micro and nanomanufacturing processes.
The subject coverage of this special issue includes, but is not limited to, topics that address:
- Fundamental research and developments on micro and nanomanufacturing;
- Applied research and developments on micro and nanomanufacturing processes;
- Applications of fundamental and applied research in micro and nano engineering industries;
- Emerging fields of micro and nanomanufacturing.
