Microelectronics technology advancements have made it possible for feature sizes to shrink continuously. As a result, Complementary
Metal-Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) miniaturization technology has facilitated the assortment of billions of transistors
within a single Integrated Circuit (IC). Supplementary improvements in device technology in the nanovicinity are highly
essential to continue the historical cadence of miniaturization. In addition, the computer-aided design, simulation of devices and
circuits will be engaged deficiently for prediction and optimization of the next generation nano-electronic circuits. Moreover,
the growing complexity and huge volume of escalating data size generated from computing necessitate an immediate need to
explore the novel device and circuit technologies for re-modeling the conventional design approaches for strategies realizing
future generation computing standards. This special issue targets innovative circuit design techniques including research on
low-power, nanoscale digital and analog CMOS design of circuits and systems, and power-efficient integrated circuit design to
implement next-generation computing and communication systems.
The paper submissions were from the Devices for Integrated Circuits (DevIC 2019) Conference. The papers were selected
after completion of a rigorous review process following the guidelines of Micro and Nanosystems (MNS) through the Bentham's
Journal Manuscript Processing System (MPS) at https://bentham.manuscriptpoint.com/journals/mns /. The rest of the
guest editorial preface contains a brief introduction of the nine (9) papers selected for this Special Issue.
Recently, reversible logic blocks have gained a lot of interest for application in nanotechnology-based quantum computing
due to their power efficiency. Maity et al.  present design consideration of quantum cost optimized 2:4 decoder using reversible
Multiplication is one of the key operations in computing and signal processing operations and it requires considerably more
hardware resource and computing time than additions and subtractions. Therefore, high-speed multiplication is a necessity to
improve the performance of the computing systems. Paper by Saha et al.  puts forward the design and evaluation of a speed
and power efficient binary multiplication system using the novel self-pipelining approach.
In Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) communication systems, the design of orthogonal codes is considered to be a
key issue of emerging communication systems. Samanta et al.  have explored the design of orthogonal codes using ultrafast
The use of a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) has a profound effect on all optical signal processing systems for highspeed
communication applications. Maji et al.  present the design and analysis of the X-OR gate and binary to gray converters
using another Terahertz Optical Asymmetrical Demultiplexer (TOAD) switch based on Dual Control Dual SOA.
For the design of low power Instrumentation Amplifier (LIA), the CMRR and gain-bandwidth products are considered to be
the key figure-of-merits. Kundu et al.  present the design and evaluation of an LIA using High Gain Operational Amplifiers
as basic building blocks to achieve improvements in terms of CMRR and gain accuracy.
Recently, reversible logic gates based on Quantum dot Cellular Automata (QCA) platform have received a great deal of
attention among the researchers globally. Mukherjee et al.  present the design and analysis of code converters using a new
QCA layout of Feynman gate for outshining the existing reported designs.
Photonic bandgap structures of sub-micron dimensions (precisely nano-fishnet structures) are efficient electromagnetic filters
applied for very high-frequency communications, and practically incorporated in all-optical integrated circuits. The work
presented by Deyasi et al.  computes first and second photonic bandgaps of one-dimensional photonic crystal from dispersion
relation under the propagation condition of both the polarized waves; moreover, the technique is successfully applied for
negative refractive index based materials with sub-micron lengths along the direction of electromagnetic field propagations.
Recently, the use of tactile interfaces has received much attention as promising candidates to satisfy the demands of revolutionary
designs for human-computer interactions. In this regard, the paper by Ghosh et al.  presents an innovative concept on
Braille display cell incorporating microelectronic embedded technologies.
Recently, hardware-efficient image compression architectures with a reduction in area and power have attracted a lot of
research interest due to the potential for realizing lightweight image compression solutions. The paper by Hasanujjaman et al.
 presents a promising fractal image compression technique that achieves area and power savings with minimal PSNR degradation.
I would like to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to all the authors for their important contributions, patience and dedication
in different stages of the review process, to all the reviewers for their timely review, and to all the editorial board members
for their support to select the papers. The guest-editor sincerely hopes that this special issue will inspire and motivate the
circuit and system designers and will be an important read for contemporary researchers worldwide.
As a final note, I again want to use the opportunity to thank the nine (9) research groups that contributed excellent papers to
this special issue.
I was delighted when I received a request from “Micro and Nanosystems” to write a foreword for this special issue “Recent Advances
on Engineering Materials: micro to nano scale” as a Guest Editor. This Special Issue has been organized into eight articles,
covering a wide range of topics in engineering materials from micro to nano scale. The development of newly synthesized engineering
materials is truly exciting owing to their plethora of applications in diverse and promising areas. Most importantly, the biomedical
applications of these materials are undoubtably beneficial to humankind. Furthermore, these materials possess many interesting properties
like piezoelectric, pyroelectric, electro-optical, photorefractive properties. Hence may be used for integrated optics and photonic
applications. Moreover, due to their good dielectric properties, these materials are very useful in satellite communications systems.
These materials also find extensive applications in sensing, solar cells and artificial photosynthetic devices. Keeping in mind, Barik et
al.  have reported the synthesis of a polycrystalline LiNbO3 ceramic by a solid-state reaction method at high temperature. The material
has high dielectric constant and low dielectric loss at room temperature. The reported compound exhibited a dielectric anomaly at
high temperature suggesting ferroelectric–paraelectric phase transition. The effect of mechanical alloying on microstructural and
thermal properties of nanocrystalline Mg2TiO4 powders has been investigated by Bhuyan et al. .
Quantum dots are one of the most promising and interesting developments in the rapidly growing world of nanotechnology. Basing
on that, Kudrat-E-Zahan et al.  have reported the synthesis of TGA-capped CdTe QDs and TGA-CdTe-Hyamine 1622 Composites.
The reported TGA-CdTe-hyamine 1622 composites have shown effective fluorescence properties with good thermal stability.
Slurry transportation through pipelines is easy and environment friendly method, which may reduce the problems of congested
transportation network. So the researchers are continuously working on formulation and stabilization of various types of slurries for
economic pipeline transportation. Das et al.  have prepared high concentration coal–water-alcohol slurry using glycerol, glycol and
ethanol as an additive. According to them, coal-water-glycerol slurry was better than other coal water-alcohol slurry. Research on
harvesting solar energy through an artificial photosynthetic device is gaining momentum in the present era. Mishra et al.  have designed
a unique and novel photoelectron transport protein device, which could harvest solar energy-a clean eternal fuel.
Thermal power plants use coal as a source of energy. The combustion products released into the environment should be reused.
Keeping in mind, Sahoo et al.  have studied the properties of sintered fly-ash samples collected from Rourkela Steel Plant, Odisha
and compared with refractory bricks. The properties of the sintered fly-ash sample could have been improved with addition of
binders. Mannan et al.  have reported a simple hydrothermal methodology for the synthesis of Nitrogen, Sulfur co-doped reduced
graphene oxide, where thiourea was used as a single-source precursor of N and S atoms. The authors have recommended its
applications as biosensor, capacitor, and energy storage devices. Polymer matrix-based composites are the workhorse of the composite
industries. Keeping in mind, Rahman et al.  have synthesized TiO2 nanoparticles by conventional sol-gel method. Moreover,
TiO2/epoxy and SiO2/epoxy nanocomposites were also prepared via a solution casting method incorporating the TiO2 and
SiO2 nanofillers in the epoxy matrix. The study concluded that the use of nano SiO2 in epoxy matrix might increase the possibility
of replacing TiO2/epoxy nanocomposites for various less expensive structural applications.
Considering the manifold and wide ranging applications of such materials in diverse and promising areas, this special issue
will provide ample references for the modern researchers. The guest editor would like to express his sincere gratitude to all the
editorial board members and reviewers for their generous contribution towards publication of this issue.
