Submission Deadline: 20 February 2017
IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Nano-antennas, Nano-transceivers, and Nano-networks / Communications.
Nanotechnology is enabling the development of devices on a scale ranging from one to a few hundred nanometers. At this scale, novel nanomaterials and nanoparticles show new properties and behaviors not observed at the microscopic level. In the future, networks of nano-devices will be a key component of almost every field of our society, with applications in biomedicine, environmental protection, entertainment, and homeland security, and beyond. In order to enable nano-devices to communicate with each other, many fundamental challenges need to be addressed. As the functional devices shrink into nano-scale, design, fabrication and control of the systems impose novel design principles, which greatly differ from that of the macro. Electromagnetic (EM) communication in the Terahertz (THz) band (0.1–10 THz) enabled by graphene-based plasmonic nano-transceivers and nano-antennas has been suggested as one of the possible approaches for communication among these devices. This special issue is dedicated to all aspects of nanoscale communication including transceiver and antenna design in addition to communication and networking solutions, as well as novel paradigm, e.g., Hybrid Molecular/EM communication systems.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article as it significantly increases the visibility, downloads, and citations of articles.
