Call For Papers: TNANO Special Section

Thursday, September 22nd, 2022



The IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) seeks original manuscripts for a Special Section on:


Spintronics uses magnetic degrees of freedom for information processing and storage. Based on the commercial success of magnetic random-access memory and magnetic sensor technology, the field has received strongly growing interest in recent years. Numerous advanced spintronic device concepts have been proposed and both experimentally and theoretically studied within emerging research fields such as magnonics, magnetoelectrics, spin-orbitronics, or spin-caloritronics. These topics are greatly interesting from the point of view of fundamental science, but also promise potential for disruptive applications in numerous fields of (micro-)electronics.

This special issue covers all aspects of advanced spintronics with a focus on (micro- or nanoscale) device applications. Contributions are welcome at all levels, including fundamental science, novel materials, technology concepts, and device fabrication and characterization. The special issue intends to provide a platform to bring together researchers in various multidisciplinary fields in basic science and engineering, such as electrical engineering, computer science, materials science and chemistry, and physics.

Evidence for the Majorana fermion in a quantum anomalous Hall insulator–superconductor

Thursday, September 21st, 2017


Majorana fermion: A particle that its own anti-particle has been recently evidenced by researchers led by Prof. Kang L. Wang, at University of California, Los Angeles. This discovery is believed to conclude the longstanding quest about the existence of Majorna fermions which could be a major breakthrough in the field of quantum computing. Prof. Kang L. Wang is the former Editor of IEEE-Transactions on Nanotechnology. Please join me in congratulating Prof. Kang L. Wang and his team on this occasion for an excellent discovery.
