International Journal of Micro-Nano Scale Transport
Multi-Science Publishing, May 2013
The applications of transport processes posed tremendous new challenges in the last part of 20th century in emerging areas like electronic cooling and MEMS (and NEMS) devices where heat, species and fluid flows are involved within very small dimensions, challenging the established paradigms of transport processes. This has given a boost to the area of micro-scale transport. In addition to this, extending micro/nano scale technologies to health sciences through Bio-MEMS and micro-nanofluidic devices, bringing the concept of lab-on-chip in biological sciences have emerged as the latest important initiatives in this field. This has given rise to inter-disciplinary research where engineering concepts are used to address the problems at smaller scales required for the problems related to fundamental sciences and their applications. The International Journal of Micro-Nano Scale Transport aims to bring all this research work together.
The International Journal of Micro-Nano Scale Transport will focus on transport processes of all kinds applicable to smaller dimensions. The processes may include the transport of momentum, mass, chemical species, thermal, biological and electro-kinetic/ electrochemical quantities at micro and/or nanoscale in natural as well as engineered systems. The observations of the characteristic features of these transport processes, analysis of these observations and theorization as well as modeling and simulation of these processes will be the broad scope of this journal. The journal will specifically emphasize both the fundamentals of microscale transports of heat, mass, momentum and species as well as the application of these to specific areas like electronic cooling, micromachines for miniaturized mechanical devices including MEMS (and NEMS), synthesis and characterization of nanoparticles and nanostructured surfaces like super hydrophobic surfaces and their applications in industrial and health care systems, micro and nano scale measurements, microfluidic devices for surgery and medicine, bio-MEMS for novel biological assays and similar other applications. The journal will also publish articles on newer concepts in the above areas with proof of concepts as rapid communications. Reviewing the above and related areas through well structured review articles will be a special feature of the journal.
