Characterization and Application of Nanomaterials


2578-1995 (Online)

Journal Abbreviation:

Charact. Appl. Nanomater.

Characterization and Application of Nanomaterials (CAN) is an open access peer-reviewed journal allowing maximum visibility of articles published in it as they are available to a wide, global audience. We are interested in the scientific topics from all fields of nano. CAN provides a forum to share scholarly practice to advance the use of nanomaterials in the context of scientific application.

CAN publishes original research articles, review articles, editorials, case reports, letters, brief commentaries, perspectives, methods, etc.

 Examples of relevant topics include but are not limited to:

Meet Our New Editor-in-Chief:Prof.Dr. Francesco Tornabene

Francesco Tornabene received from the University of Bologna - Alma Mater Studiorum, a M.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering (Curriculum in Structural Mechanics) in 2003. He subsequently received his Ph.D. degree in Structural Mechanics at the University of Bologna in 2007. He has been an Assistant Professor and Lecturer since 2012, and from 2022, he has been an Associate Professor. For a long time his scientific interests include the Structural Mechanics, Solid Mechanics, Innovative and Smart Materials, Computational Mechanics and Numerical Techniques, Damage and Fracture Mechanics. He is author of more than 280 scientific publications and 11 books, and collaborates with many national or international researchers and professors all over the world, as visible from his scientific production. In the last years he received different important awards, see e.g. “Highly Cited Researcher by Clarivate Analytics” (years 2018, 2019, 2020).

We express our sincere thanks to Prof. Francesco Tornabene for his support and look forward to his guidance in helping Characterization and Application of Nanomaterials reach new milestones.
