The Nanomaterials section of the journal Current Chinese Science publishes original research articles, letters, reviews/mini-reviews, and guest-edited thematic issues in all areas of nanomaterials. Articles may be focused largely, but not exclusively, on contributions from China.
This section is not limited to a specific aspect of the field but is instead devoted to a wide range of sub-fields in the area. Articles of interdisciplinary nature are particularly welcome. Submissions in the following nanomaterials areas are of special interest to the readers of this journal:• Adhesion of nanostructures.
• Anti-adhesion on nanostructured surfaces.
• Anticorrosive performance of nanomaterials.
• Anti-reflection of nanostructured materials.
• Bioinspired, biomimetic, or bionic nanostructures, surfaces, and materials.
• Bubble transport on nanostructured surfaces.
• Coatings for anti-fogging, water-proof, anti-fingerprint, art-protecting, anti-icing, anticorrosive, self-cleaning, etc.
• Drag reduction via the design of nanostructures on surfaces.
• Droplet manipulation on nanostructured surfaces.
• Fog harvesting and atmosphere water harvesting or capturing of materials.
• Functions of nanomaterials, including electric, magnetic, optical, thermal properties, etc.
• Liquid controlling on nanochannel or microchannel.
• Methods used in the fabrication and design of nanostructures of different dimensions, including nanoparticles, nanofibers, nanowires, nanopores, etc.
• Solar-driven nanostructured materials for energy harvesting and fluid behavior.
• Surfaces with nanostructures for functions including wettability, gradient tension, energy, droplet transport, superhydrophobicity, antiicing, etc.
• Water repellency on nanopatterned surfaces.
Dr. Anum Shafiq did her Master's and PhD from Quaid-I-Azam University Islamabad Pakistan during 2012-2016. During her Master's studies, she explored the significance of "Axisymmetric flow of third great fluid between two disks''. The results of the Master work were compiled into two manuscripts and published in Applied Mathematics and Mechanics, and Computers and Fluids. During Ph.D., Dr. Anum's research covered Steady flows of viscoelastic fluids due to moving surface with heat transfer, which produced 25 first and co-authored publications, while collaborating with Master's students as part of the Ph.D. dissertation work. Dr. Anum also attended North-West University as a postdoctoral research fellow and published several ISI and SCI papers. She is also the author of one book named and one book chapter. She has supervised 24 undergraduate students, 9 Masters, and one Ph.D. as co-supervisor. She is acting as an Assistant Professor at Preston University Islamabad while also serving as visiting faculty at Quad-I-Azam University Islamabad, International Islamic University Islamabad, Allama Iqbal Open University Islamabad, and, Arid Agriculture University Rawalpindi. Dr. Anum has received several distinction awards. She is a reviewer of more than 70 Journals. Since July 2019, Dr. Anum is serving as an Associate professor at the School of Mathematics and Statistics, Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology. She has published over 93 SCI papers as the first or corresponding author and three book chapters. Her research interests include Fluid Flow with Nanoparticles; Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD); Mechanical engineering; Mathematical and computational methods in statistics; Applied Mathematics; Fluid processing and heat transfer systems; etc.
Dr. Yu-Sheng Lin received his Ph.D. degree from the Institute of Nanoengineering and Microsystems at the National Tsing Hua University (NTHU), Taiwan, in 2011. From 2012 to 2014, he joined the department of electrical and computer engineering (ECE) at the National University of Singapore (NUS) as a senior research fellow. Currently, he is an associate professor of School of Electronics and Information Technology at Sun Yat-Sen University (SYSU), Guangzhou, China. His research interests include N/MEMS, metamaterials, nanophotonics, and microfluidics, for sensors, optoelectronics, and biomedical applications. He has more than 160 refereed archival publications (100+ SCI journal papers and 60+ conference proceedings.
Dr. Wei Zhou received her Ph.D. degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Beihang University under the supervision of Prof. Lin Guo in 2009. She once worked as a visiting scholar in Prof. Hong Yang's group in the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in 2012–2013. Currently, she is a professor at the School of Chemistry in Beihang University. Her research interests focus on iron triad (Fe, Co, Ni) nanomaterials with applications in energy storage and conversion.
