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.

Adele Moatti

Research Assistant

  • Adele Moatti, 29 years old, received her B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Materials Science and Engineering from the Iran University of Science and Technology (2010, 2013). She has finished her high-school in National Organization for Development of Exceptional Talents (Iran) and she has been ranked 1th in province and 20th in the country in Basij Math Olympiad, Iran, 2004. She has been awarded as distinguished student during her M.Sc. and currently she is a Research Assistant and Ph.D. candidate in the North Carolina State University (2014-current) under supervision of Prof. Jagdish Narayan in Materials Science and Engineering.
  • She is working on epitaxial thin films deposition of oxides and nitrides and atomic scale measurement specifically with the application of IR sensors and memories. For military applications, sensor technology needs to be able to sense, manipulate, and respond to data quickly and this goal is achievable with her current project. Also, she is the Lab manager for NSF Center for Advanced Materials and Smart Structures Lab. She is teaching assistant some doctorate courses like MSE 702 and MSE 760 and she was mentoring international and American undergraduate students under NSF-REU and 2016GEAR programs. Her publications (>10) include publications in ACS. Appl Mater Inter and Acta Mater. She has presented in more than ten national and international conferences including: “8th International Ceramic Congress, 2010, Osaka, Japan”, “Advances in applied physics materials science congress 2011, Antalya, Turkey”, and “9th Congress of Iranian Ceramic Society 2013, Tehran, Iran”.
