International journal of Nanoparticles and Nanotechnology (IJNN) is a multidisciplinary, peer reviewed journal which includes all the major fields in nanotechnology and Nano science. Nanoscience and nanotechnology brought up an unprecedented excitement in the scientific and engineering communities, especially the last decade. It is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale. This covers both current work and concepts that are more advanced.  International journal of Nanoparticles and Nanotechnology   publishes original research papers during a broad area of nanoscience & engineering. IJNN provides an ideal forum for presenting original reports of theoretical and experimental nanoscience and nanotechnology research. Nanotechnology is a gathering of rising innovations in which the structure of matter is controlled at the nanometer scale, the size of little quantities of molecules, to create novel materials and gadgets that have valuable and one of kind properties. IJNN is naturally multidisciplinary, and welcomes submissions across biological, physical, engineering, and computer sciences. Contributions from both academia and industry are equally encouraged. IJNN also publishes innovative techniques and instrumentation for the fabrication, characterization and testing of nano-enabled devices and technologies, as well as advanced modelling and simulation methods.

Niravkumar Joshi

Researcher

Dr. Niravkumar Joshi, 32 years old, is a Postdoctoral Researcher working at Center for University of California Berkeley USA. He received his Master and Ph.D. degree in Applied Physics in 2008 and in 2012, respectively. During his PhD period, He has focused his research on the studies of nano-sized high dielectric constant materials for capacitor application. After a Research Associate position at the Bhabha Atomic Research center, Mumbai, India, from 2012 to 2014, centered on Langmuir-Blodgett Thing films and conducting polymer based flexible gas sensors, He first joined Chonnam National University in South Korea and also held two temporary assistant professor positions at Indian institutes before accepting a research position at the University of São Paulo in Brazil. From December 2015 until April 2017, he has conducted research at the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, during that time he also received the FAPESP Postdoctoral Research Fellowship. After that, he had been involved in the design and development of low-cost and robust room temperature gas sensors using microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) techniques. Currently, he is performing research at the University of California, Berkeley. He is involved in the synthesis and characterization of nanostructured oxide materials for gas sensing application. In addition, he is also working with two major industry projects on carbon dioxide and formaldehyde gas monitoring by Texas Instruments and Midea Inc., respectively. He has reviewed papers from prestigious journal like ACS Applied Material Interfaces, Nature Scientific Reports, Sensors and actuators B, etc. He has published several papers in peer reviewed international journals. In addition to this, he is serving as a editorial board member of various scientific journals and society.
