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.






Dr. Gufei Zhang, 36 years old, is a researcher working at the Semiconductor Physics Division of KU Leuven. After obtaining his B.Sc. degree in Physics from the University of Science and Technology of China in 2004, he spent one year working at Institute of Ion Beam Physics and Materials Research in Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, where he focused his research on diluted magnetic semiconductors and the magnetic and structural properties of semiconductors/insulators in which magnetic clusters were embedded. Afterwards, he joined the Institute of Nanoscale Physics and Chemistry (INPAC-KU Leuven) as a predoctoral researcher in 2008, and earned his Ph.D. degree in Physics from KU Leuven in 2013. During his PhD period, he devoted his experimental and theoretical research efforts to studying the metal-insulator transition in boron-doped diamond and superconductivity in nanogranular materials grown by chemical vapor deposition and sputtering. Thereafter, as the owner of the most prestigious scholarship (FWO-Vlaanders) in Belgium, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher whose research activities were centered on quantum confinement and coherence effects in nanostructured systems. Dr. Zhang’s current research interests lie in electrical transport and strongly correlated states in low dimensional systems and nanostructures. Dr. Zhang has published 28 papers in internationally peer-reviewed journals with a total citation of 382.
