Call For Papers
Microelectronic Engineering is the premier nano-processing, and nanotechnology journal focusing on fabrication of electronic, bioelectronic, electromechanic and fluidic devices and systems, and their applications in the broad areas of electronics, energy, life sciences, and environment. It covers also the expanding interdisciplinary field of "more than Moore" and "beyond Moore" integrated nanoelectronics and micro-nano systems. Through its unique mixture of peer-reviewed articles, reviews, accelerated publications, short and Technical notes, and the latest research news on key developments, Microelectronic Engineering provides comprehensive coverage of this exciting, interdisciplinary and dynamic new field for researchers in academia and professionals in industry.

The journal addresses the following topics:
a)Micro and Nano fabrication, Processing for Nanoelectronics (Lithography, Self-assembly, Plasma Processing, Metallization, 3D Integration, Related Materials)
b)Nanoelectronic, Photonic, Nanoenergy Devices and Systems (fabrication, application and related materials)
c)Micro - Nano Systems, Devices and Systems for Life Sciences, and Environment (Micro/Nano fluidics, MEMS/NEMS, BioMEMS, Lab on a chip)
