Call for papers: "Smart and Nano Materials Applications"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Nano and Biomaterials.

There is an increased tendency to integrate smart materials with nanotechnology to develop novel materials or structures for the applications in sensors, actuators, biomaterials, multifunctional materials, structural health monitoring, etc. The combination of smart materials and nanotechnology provides many advantages, realises novel designs that could not be achieved in traditional engineering, and also offers greater opportunities as well as challenges. The central aim of this special issue will be to publish original results, critical reviews and technical discussion related to this compelling research field. We believe that the papers published in this journal will provide cutting edge information and instructive research guidance, encouraging more scientists to make their contribution to this dynamic research field.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited, to the following:
  • Smart materials and structures
  • Nano and multifunctional materials
  • Autonomous materials
  • Nano composites
  • Bio-inspired materials and structures
  • Sensors and actuators
  • Structural health monitoring
  • Energy harvesting
  • Self-healing and self-assembly

Important Dates

Manuscripts due by: 31 January, 2018
