Nano scales antennasAims & Scope: Nanotechnology is enabling the development of devices on a scale ranging from one to a few hundred nanometers. At this scale, novel nanomaterials and nanoparticles show new properties and behaviors not observed at the microscopic level. In the future, networks of nano-devices will be a key component of almost every field of our society, with applications in biomedicine, environmental protection, entertainment, and homeland security, and beyond. In order to enable nano-devices to communicate with each other, many fundamental challenges need to be addressed. As the functional devices shrink into nano-scale, design, fabrication and control of the systems impose novel design principles, which greatly differ from that of the macro. Electromagnetic (EM) communication in the Terahertz (THz) band (0.1–10 THz) enabled by grapheme-based plasmonic nano- transceivers and nano-antennas has been suggested as one of the possible approaches for communication among these devices. This special section is dedicated to all aspects of nano-scale communication including transceiver and antenna design in addition to communication and networking solutions, as well as novel paradigm, e.g., Hybrid Molecular/EM communication systems.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Nanomaterial- and metamaterial-based nano-antennas and nano-antenna arrays
  • Plasmonic and nanophotonic nano-transceiver design for THz communications
  • Channel modeling for THz electromagnetic communications
  • Characterization of materials and human tissues at THz frequencies
  • Numerical and computational modelling techniques for THz electromagnetics
  • Experiments, implementation for nano-scale electromagnetic communications
  • Hybrid Molecular/Electromagnetic communication
