IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (T-NANO)

Editor-in-Chief: Sorin Cotofana

T-NANO is a peer-reviewed hybrid journal, and publishes novel and important results in engineering at the nanoscale. The scope of TNANO includes the physical basis and engineering applications of phenomena at the nanoscale level across all areas of science and engineering. TNANO publishes Regular Papers and Letters. It focuses on nanoscale devices, systems, materials and applications, and on their underlying science.

TNANO is an online publication with accepted papers published on the web as soon as they are submitted in final form. Web-published papers have a DOI (Digital Object Identifier), and are fully citable and downloadable.

Nanotechnology is evolving rapidly and swift publication is necessary to ensure that authors submit their best work to the Transactions. Fast publication is achieved through TNANO’s entirely electronic submission and review process.

“Letters” in TNANO

Associate Editor-in-Chief: Prof. Gwo-Bin Lee

The “Letters” in TNANO serves as forum for rapid publication of high-quality articles – featuring the topics of great current interest in all areas of nanotechnology, including nanoscale materials, devices, systems, and applications, and their underlying science, which cover the interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary areas across engineering, material science, physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, and related disciplines.

The “Letters” category publishes a collection of peer-reviewed short reports of original research and perspectives and mini-reviews on emerging topics. Papers submitted to the “Letters” are limited to a maximum of 4 journal pages in the two-column IEEE format, which includes figures, tables, and references. The “Letters” in TNANO maintains the same competitive and constructive peer-review criteria of TNANO with no article publishing charges.

IEEE Journal of Photovoltaics (J-PV)

Editor-in-Chief: Angus Rockett

The IEEE Journal of Photovoltaics is a peer-reviewed, archival publication reporting original and significant research results that advance the field of photovoltaics (PV). The PV field is diverse in its science base ranging from semiconductor and PV device physics to optics and the materials sciences. The journal publishes articles that connect this science base to PV science and technology. The intent is to publish original research results that are of primary interest to the photovoltaic specialist.

The scope of the IEEE J. Photovoltaics incorporates: fundamentals and new concepts of PV conversion, including those based on nanostructured materials, low-dimensional physics, multiple charge generation, up/down converters, thermophotovoltaics, hot-carrier effects, plasmonics, metamorphic materials, luminescent concentrators, and rectennas; Si-based PV, including new cell designs, crystalline and non-crystalline Si, passivation, characterization and Si crystal growth; polycrystalline, amorphous and crystalline thin-film solar cell materials, including PV structures and solar cells based on II-VI, chalcopyrite, Si and other thin film absorbers; III-V PV materials, heterostructures, multijunction devices and concentrator PV; optics for light trapping, reflection control and concentration; organic PV including polymer, hybrid and dye sensitized solar cells; space PV including cell materials and PV devices, defects and reliability, environmental effects and protective materials; PV modeling and characterization methods; and other aspects of PV, including modules, power conditioning, inverters, balance-of-systems components, monitoring, analyses and simulations, and supporting PV module standards and measurements. Tutorial and review papers on these subjects are also published and occasionally special issues are published to treat particular areas in more depth and breadth.

J-PV is jointly sponsored by the IEEE Electron Devices Society, Photonics Society, Power and Energy Society, Power Electronics Society, Industrial Electronics Society, Reliability Society and Nanotechnology Council.

IEEE Transactions on Multi-Scale Computing Systems (TMSCS)

Ceased publication in 2018.

IEEE Transactions on Multi-Scale Computing Systems (TMSCS) was a selective peer-reviewed publication devoted to computing systems that exploit multi-scale and multi-functionality. These systems consist of computational modules that utilize diverse implementation scales (from micro down to the nano scale) and heterogeneous hardware and software functionalities; moreover, these modules can be based on operating principles and models that are valid within but not necessarily across their respective scales and computational domains. Contributions to TMSCS must address computation of information and data at higher system-levels for processing by digital and emerging domains. These computing systems can also rely on diverse frameworks based on paradigms at molecular, quantum and other physical, chemical and biological levels. Innovative techniques such as inexact computing, management/optimization of smart infrastructures and neuromorphic modules are also considered within scope. Co-published with the Computer Society.
