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.





Professor/ Head of the Laboratory of Nanostructures,

Professor WitoldLojkowski graduated from Department of Physics of the Warsaw University.

His fields of interest from the very beginning connected with studies under phenomena occurred in nano-scale. They varied during all these years of his research career, but during last near twenty years focused on characterization and synthesis of nanostructures using best and the most accurate methods as possible. In the laboratory he leads, were invented series of microwave hydrothermal reactors MSS, which use high pressure and microwaves for better and shorter synthesis on demand. He is for over 20 years collaborating with national and international research institutes like Ulm University, KIT, CERN as well as numerous researchers like prof. Herbert Gleiter, prof. Hans-JorgFecht and prof. Marcel Van de Voorde.

Recently he is involved in several projects on searching the best possible material for bone implants and bone tissue regrowth scaffolds.

Professor Lojkowski is the Head of certificate Laboratory of Nanostructures in IHPP PAS and also carry the lecturer position at the  Management Department of the Technical University in Bialystok. He has invented with co-workers over 10 patents and he is author of over 250 publications. He has been member of Executive Committees for E-MRS, COST Action and represented Poland as a nanotechnology expert in OECD.

Current Research

Head of very well equipped laboratory with state of the art infrastructures and with young researchers stuff with know-how in characterization and synthesis of nanomaterials and nanostructures.

Laboratory has also on it’s account design of the  line of MSS reactors for microwave, solvothermal synthesis of nanomaterials with application of high pressure. Synthesis in this reactors is rather short and occurred in not so very high temperature, in comparison with the others.

Right now is pending process of evaluation of laboratory procedures, laboratory  obtained ISO certificate for selected nano-particle characterization procedures. Laboratory is offering nano-particles characterization on commercial bases. Small scale commercial sales of nano-particles for scientific research laboratories.

Co-author of multiple publications and co-inventor of several patents, Polish as well as international.

Interested topics
