CFP on Thematic Issue of The “Letters” in IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO): Biomedical Micro/Nano-Devices

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017

Thematic Issue of The “Letters” in IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO): Biomedical Micro/Nano-Devices

The “Letters” in IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) will devote a themed issue “Biomedical Micro/Nano-Devices” to a collection of papers highlighting research and technology development in micro/nano-engineered devices for broad ranges of biomedical applications. Recent development of micro/nano-technologies enables an emerging class of devices, which provide advanced capabilities not only to sense and/or stimulate living cells and tissues but also to deliver various bio-agents at their length scale. These platforms also open a new possibility to explore the interfacial interactions between micro/nano-materials and biology in a minimally invasive manner, which otherwise cannot be achievable by exploiting conventional bulk materials systems. The topics of interests in this special issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Advanced fabrication methods for micro/nano-scale biomedical devices
  • Micro/nano-scale recording and stimulation at cellular and/or tissue level
  • Micro/nano-scale force measurements of cell adhesion, migration, and contraction.
  • Minimally invasive intracellular and intratissue access and targeting by micro/nano-devices
  • Wearable biomedical devices enabled by micro/nano-materials and designs.
  • Mechanically soft and flexible micro/nano-devices for bio-integration.
  • Biochips and bio-MEMS

 

Submissions are solicited from researchers in the field for short reports of original research and perspectives and mini-reviews on emerging topics for this themed issue. 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. Manuscripts will be subject to the same competitive and constructive peer-review criteria of TNANO with no article publishing charges.

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. The submission to publication time is expected to be approximately six weeks. Accepted papers are published on the web in IEEE Xplore as soon as they are submitted in final form. Web-published papers have a DOI (Digital Object Identifier), and are fully citable and downloadable.

Follow the guideline (http://sites.ieee.org/tnano/author-info/), and submit your paper to ScholarOne ManuscriptsTM at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tnano, indicating in the cover letter that you wish the paper to be considered for the Special Issue “Letters: Biomedical Micro/Nano-Devices”. Note that the submitted article cannot be a verbatim copy of a published conference article and your manuscript must contain at least 30% new results when compared with conference papers.

Submission deadline: August 31, 2017
Anticipated publication: October 2017

  1. Periodic metallic nanostructures for high-sensitivity biosensing applications

Kuang-Li Lee and Pei-Kuen Wei

Surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensing is a real-time and label-free detection technique. To reach the best biosensing performance, sensors with high surface sensitivities and small resonance linewidth are required. We proposed using hot-embossing nanoimprint lithography method to make high-quality metallic nanostructures and Fano coupling mode in capped nanoslit arrays to generate ultrasmall resonance linewidth. The full width at half-maximum bandwidth of the Fano mode is only 3.88 nm. The wavelength sensitivity is 644 nm/RIU for 60-nm-width and 650-nm-period nanoslits. The figure of merit is up to 166. Using the capped nanolsit arrays with multiple periods, the sensing chip can be used for qualitative and quantitative analyses of antigen-antibody interactions. The protein layer attached on the chip can be directly observed and the concentration levels of the analyte can be estimated with naked eyes. Such nanoplasmonic bioschips can benefit sensing applications on point-of-care diagnostics.
