American Journal of Engineering and Applied Sciences


This special issue devoted to the integrated study of nanotechnologies and biomedical systems (from earliest times to the present day) will be published to give researchers appreciation of where the discipline has come from. We aim to provide an advanced forum for studies related to the proposed fields with all topics below. The objective of this special issue is to present recent advances and emerging cross-disciplinary approaches in the field of nanotechnologies, biomedical and medical engineering. Nanoscale science and technology, often spoken of as "nanoscience" or "nanotechnology", are simply science and engineering carried out on the nanometer scale, that is, 10?9 meters. In the last two decades, researchers began developing the ability to manipulate matter at the level of single atoms and small groups of atoms and to characterize the properties of materials and systems at that scale. This capability has led to the astonishing discovery that clusters of small numbers of atoms or molecules-nanoscale clusters-often have properties (such as strength, electrical resistivity and conductivity, and optical absorption) that are significantly different from the properties of the same matter at either the single-molecule scale or the bulk scale. For example, carbon nanotubes are much less chemically reactive than carbon atoms and combine the characteristics of the two naturally occurring bulk forms of carbon, strength (diamond) and electrical conductivity (graphite). The editors also would like to encourage studies that outline the general development of the main branches of physics as we know them today and even to discuss principal figures in each area. Articles discussing methodology, and reviews of the current state of knowledge and possibilities for future research, are especially welcome.

Moreover, this issue will publish reviews and research articles. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. Full experimental and methodological details, as applicable, must be provided, and the special issue will be supported by American Journal of Engineering and Applied Sciences ( AJEAS is an open access peer reviewed technical journal which publishes original research contributions and is an unparalleled resource for key advances in the field of engineering.
