Nanotechnology’s impact on the world of science and engineering has had an enormous influence on future technologies. With the global technology market expected to exceed $125 Billion by 2024, nanosized particles are changing virtually every sector of our society.

In this issue of NanoScientific, we have two articles from presenters at the NanoScientific Symposium in Europe, “Insights into Submicron-Scales – Nanobubbles and Their Effect on AFM Measurements and Engineering Processes” by Lisa Ditscherlein, Technical University Freiberg and an interview with Tobias Cramer Asst. Professor, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Bologna, Italy with “An In Depth Look at Implantable Organic Nano Electronics”.

We also have a feature interview with Dr. Elliott Bloom from Stanford about the search for dark matter and other wonders of the universe for the last ten years using the Large Area Telescope on the Fermi Gamma-ray space observatory at Stanford.

We have two application notes on Simultaneous Topographical and Electrochemical Mapping using Scanning Ion Conductance Microscopy – Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy (SICM-SECM) and Differentiating Material Compositions using Lateral Force Microscopy.

Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) advances the researchers ability to see and analyze nanoparticles in new ways and in more depth.The advancements in nanometrology run parallel with the advances in nanoscience and nanotechnology. NanoScientific is proud to present NanoScientific Symposiums on SPM world-wide. This year we are sponsoring three symposiums in Korea, the United States and Europe.

A list of Global Nanotech Organizations

The International Association of Nanotechnology is a non-profit organization with the goals of fostering scientific research and business development in the area of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology for benefits of society. The Association fosters friendship, equality and cooperation amongst its members around the world.  The Association conducts workforce training programs to equip a new generation of scientists, engineers and technicians working in nanotech and cleantech industries. Website: www.nanotechnologyworld.org

The Nanotechnology World Association provides its members with access to a vast network of more than 70,000 individuals and organizations who are leading the research, development, manufacturing and commercialization of nanotechnology worldwide. The association was created to help accelerate the integration of nanotechnologies in various industries — such as medical, energy, electronics, transportation and materials — by providing information, resources and tools, by connecting researchers and organizations, and by fostering knowledge sharing and cooperation. Promoting collaboration and networking is a part of the process towards sustainable success. Opening to new interdisciplinary approaches represents a new challenge for material scientists. This is particularly important in fields such as Nanoengineering, Nanoelectronics and Nanomedicine. Website: www.ianano.org

The Nanotechnology Industries Association (NIA) is the leading voice of the nanotechnology industries. On behalf of membership across Europe and around the world, we support the development of nanotech innovations that improve the lives of consumers, preserve our environment and advance our world.

NIA and our Members are committed to the safe, sustainable and beneficial use of nanotechnology and nanomaterials across all industries.
