Nano Letters

An electronic version of this journal from the American Chemical Society is available for free through June 30, 2001. Nano Letters is ACS's newest journal. It deals with "physical, chemical, and biological phenomena, processes and applications of structures within the nanoscale range."
Nano Magazine

Billed as "the magazine for small science," Nano Magazine has an impressive online presence. Published in Britain, the magazine covers all aspects of nanotechnology and its various applications. Along the top of the homepage, visitors will find a "Hot News" area that scrolls important news developments in the field. Visitors can move on to look through the "Latest Issue" area, which contains...

Nanotechnology is the process of constructing devices from single atoms and molecules. Although it is relatively new to modern science, it is a rapidly growing industry, and advances are continually being made. Sandia National Laboratories is conducting several projects on various aspects of nanotechnology. Its Web site is a good starting point to learn the basics of nanotechnology and see videos...
Nanotechnology Featured Articles

Three articles from each issue of the Institute of Physics Nanotechnology journal are freely available to all visitors. The selections from the journal are made based on the Editor's choice, or due to their topicality. As a result, the titles are subject to change. The articles are located at the bottom of the page.
Nanotechnology Now

This Web site provides an outstanding introduction to the world of nanotechnology. Many standpoints of the topic are discussed, from current and future applications to the "ethics of nanotechnology." Scattered throughout the site are historic, visionary quotes and excerpts from notable journals and publications. Transcripts of interviews with prominent researchers give readers an idea of the...
Nanotechnology: Molecular dynamics simulations of carbon nanotube-based gears

The article in the Institute of Physics' (IOP) Nanotechnolgy entitled "Molecular dynamics simulations of carbon nanotube-based gears" offers a glimpse into the future of what scholarly publishing could be. Concepts "come alive" in the multimedia appendices. The eight page article (available in Adobe Acrobat [.pdf] and postscript format) is tailored for specialists and includes some photos, but all...
