International journal of Nano Scientific Networks 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 Nano Scientific Networks 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.




Shiquan Tao


Dr. Shiquan Tao is presently a Professor of Chemistry at West Texas A&M University.  He received his PhD in chemistry from Hiroshima University.  After receiving PhD degree, he worked for two years as a postdoc in the department of physics at Tsinghua University.  Dr. Tao was a Research Associate Professor at Mississippi State University before joining his present institute as a tenure-track faculty in 2007   

For the past 16 years Dr. Tao’s research programs are mainly focused on the following two directions: 1. development of optical fiber chemical sensors and exploring the applications of sensor technologies in environmental monitoring as well as monitoring industrial processes; 2. development of immune-separation technique for the detection of pathogenic bacteria in food material using optical spectroscopic techniques

Dr. Tao has served as a member of editorial board for two journals and as a reviewer for federal and private funding agencies as well as a reviewer for more than 10 scientific journals.

  • Optical fiber chemical sensors
  • Immuno-separation using magnetic particles and optical fibers for detecting pathogenic bacteria in food materials.
  • Reagent-immobilized porous polymer membranes for sensor design and extracting chemical species for analyzing trace chemicals in water samples
