Welcome to another issue of NanoScientific.

International collaboration has played an important role in the development of nanotechnology. Scientific research knows no boundaries as we are on the brink of discoveries that change our lives.

Nanoscience is the study of the interaction, composition, properties and manufacturing methods of materials at the nanometer scale. Nanoscience facilitates the integration of many disciplinary areas of scientific research and directly impacts every sector of our economy.

Through international cooperation, nanoscience is a growing research priority in many countries, forming a massive global think tank of scientists and researchers blazing trails into our future.

In this issue, we present an article on the work of Dr. Alberto Salleo at Stanford University. His inspiring work with polymer based semiconductors has already laid a foundation for future innovative products in biomedical and neuro computing.
We also present exciting news about the International Linear Collider (ILC), which may soon become a reality if approved by host Japan and will continue the work done at CERN where, in 2012, the discovery of Higgs boson, the subatomic particle that has brought a Nobel Prize to Francois Englert and Peter Higgs was officially announced.

This issue showcases an in depth look into tooth whitening, a study done using PinPoint Nanomechanical Mode and an application note on enhanced surface detection techniques using FM-SKPM.

We also feature an article by RPI Applied Physics and Astronomy professor, Dr. Gwo-Ching Wang on Room Temperature Magnetism in a flat land- Transition metal dichalcogenide.

As the tools to “see” at the nanoscale continue to advance, scientific discoveries are setting an unprecedented pace for human progress.

We hope you enjoy this issue of Nonscientific, please share your feedback and story ideas.

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. We believe in fostering a better understanding of nanotechnology’s important role in society and building a positive global environment for nanotech innovation. www.nanotechia.org
