Call for Papers : Fabrication and Characterization of Novel Nanostructures and Devices

Our Series focuses on the fabrication and characterization of novel nanostructures and nanodevices. We cover various micro/nano-fabrication and characterization techniques of functional structures, devices, and systems. The topics will include micro/nano-photonic structures, microfluidic devices, nanophotonic sensors, physical/chemical sensors, nanomechanical devices, scanning probes, nanomaterial-based energy harvesting devices in the aspects of their fabrication, characterization, and applications.

Call for Papers : Advance in Photonic Devices Scaling Down to the Nanoscale

Our Series focuses on the recent advances in photonic devices to achieve in the deep sub-wavelength nanoscale. We cover deep sub-wavelength nanophotonics, plasmonics, metamaterials, quantum/toplogical optical materials as well as various nanofabrication techniques. Such contributions will make the first step for current nanoscale optics and photonics from the scientific understanding and fundamentals to practical real-life technologie.

Special Issue (Invited Submission Only): ICAMD2019

The 11th International Conference on Advanced Materials and Devices (ICAMD2019) will be held from December 10th to December 13th, 2019 at Ramada Plaza Jeju Hotel, Jeju, Korea. It is organized by the Applied Physics Division of the Korean Physical Society.
