Nominations to Nanoscale Horizons Community Board now open!

Last year, our sister journal, Materials Horizons, announced the first ever early career researcher board – a Community Board. This Board is unique in that it is made up of early career researchers, such as PhD students and postdocs, who are fundamental in the future development of the materials field.

Since then, the members of the Community Board have provided invaluable feedback and advice to the Materials Horizons Editorial Office.

Based on its success so far, we are now creating a Community Board for Nanoscale Horizons.

Are you interested in helping shape a journal publishing cutting-edge research of exceptional significance? Do you have ideas on how high impact journals can engage and support early career researchers? If so, please get in touch!

Simply ask your Principal Investigator to submit your nomination with the information outlined in the documents below to nanoscalehorizons-rsc@rsc.org.

If you have any questions at all, please contact nanoscalehorizons-rsc@rsc.org. We look forward to hearing from you!

Three dimensional nitrogen-doped graphene hydrogels with in situ deposited cobalt phosphate nanoclusters for efficient oxygen evolution in a neutral electrolyte
Anthony Vasileff, Sheng Chen and Shi Zhang Qiao

A hybrid electrode of cobalt phosphate (CoPi) on nitrogen doped graphene hydrogels was fabricated by hydrothermal treatment of graphene oxide followed by CoPi electrodeposited in situ, which showed excellent performance toward oxygen reaction in a neutral electrolyte.

Poster prize winners at IEEE NANO 2015

Dr Kim

Many congratulations to Antonio Maffucci and Kyung Rok Kim for winning the Nanoscale Horizons poster prizes at IEEE NANO 2015.

Antonio, from  the University of Cassino and Southern Lazio, and Kyung Rok Kim, from Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, and their co-authors won prizes for their posters entitled “Carbon-Based Power Delivery Networks for Nanoscale ICs: Electrothermal Performance Analysis” and “FinHEMT: FinFET-based High Electron Mobility Transistor with Strained Silicon Channel”, respectively.

Prof. Maffucci

IEEE NANO 2015 took place from 27th to 30th July 2015 at the Angelicum Congress Centre, Rome,  Italy. The conference is organised by the University of Tor Vergata and Sapienza University of Rome, and aims to provide an international forum for the exchange of technical information in a wide variety of branches of nanotechnology and nanoscience, through feature tutorials, workshops, and track sessions; plenary and invited talks from the world most renowned scientists and engineers; exhibition of software, hardware, equipment, materials, services and literature. Further details are available on the conference website.
