Majorana fermion: A particle that its own anti-particle has been recently evidenced by researchers led by Prof. Kang L. Wang, at University of California, Los Angeles. This discovery is believed to conclude the longstanding quest about the existence of Majorna fermions which could be a major breakthrough in the field of quantum computing. Prof. Kang L. Wang is the former Editor of IEEE-Transactions on Nanotechnology. Please join me in congratulating Prof. Kang L. Wang and his team on this occasion for an excellent discovery.

IEEE Nanotechnology Summer School on “Nanoelectronic technologies and devices – From basic principle to highly reliable applications” in Toulouse, France.

Congrats on the successful event on the 2017 IEEE Summer School on Nanoelectronics that took place at Laboratoire d’Analyse et d’Architecture des Systems (LAAS-CNRS), Toulouse, France on July 10-14 and organized by IRT Saint Exupery and Laplace Laboratory to promote interdisciplinary understanding of Space, Aeronautical, Defence, Nuclear, Transport, Automotive and Telecommunication Systems based on disruptive Nanotechnologies. Industrial, commercial, and government endeavors are focused on developing and pulling off high performance and low consumption systems based on nanoscale products operating under harsh environment and on disruptive GaN (gallium nitride) & DSM (deep sub-micron) technologies.

IRT offered the opportunity of a series of annual event and this Summer School in Toulouse area, supported by IEEE Nanotechnology Council, is specially designed for Ph.D. students, Post-Docs and young engineers in electronic equipment design and manufacturing, academics, military, defense and industry personnel. Seventeen top-level professors, experts, academics and scientists from the Belgium, Serbia, Singapore, Switzerland, USA, and France, offered 4 days’ lectures to about 30 multinational graduate students and postdocs participating in the summer school.

In a pioneering effort to control, measure and understand magnetism at the atomic level, researchers working at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have discovered a new method for manipulating the nanoscale properties of magnetic materials. The ability to control these properties has potential applications in creating and improving the magnetic memory in consumer electronic devices and developing a sensitive detector for magnetic nanoparticles. The discovery focuses on a quantum-mechanical property known as spin, which endows electrons with a tiny magnetic field. Electron spin can point in either of two directions, “up” or “down,” as does the accompanying magnetic field. Over the years, scientists have become adept at flipping the direction of spin, and therefore, the direction of the magnetic field. But the new finding has a novel twist.

IEEE has revised and updated their information for authors pages and created the IEEE Author Center.

The IEEE Author Center is a standalone site for journal authors that provides a one-stop shop to learn about publishing with IEEE.  This comprehensive source of up-to-date content is written from the author’s perspective in simple, engaging language and is easily viewed in mobile.  The content is organized to follow the author’s path through the publishing process, from writing the article through to post-publication.

The IEEE Author Center will replace existing content on ieee.org as of 31-Aug-17.
