The AVS Early Career Professionals Committee (ECPC) and The Journal of Vacuum Science & Technology B (JVST B) are planning a Special Topic Collection: Celebrating the Early Career Professionals Contributing to the Advancement of Microelectronics and Nanotechnology. This Special Topic Collection will feature articles on all areas that fall within the scope of JVST B, authored or co-authored by early-career professionals, scientists, and engineers who are currently working towards their Ph.D. or are within 10 years of receiving their Ph.D.
One of the articles in this collection will be selected for the JVST B Young Author(s) Award. All early career professionals who authored or co-authored the article will be recognized as awardees and be presented with certificates. The winning article will be widely promoted via email and on social and professional networks.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Compound semiconductor electronics and optoelectronics
- Dielectrics in micro- and nanoelectronics
- Graphene, carbon nanotubes, and fullerenes: materials & devices
- Group IV semiconductor microelectronics
- Microelectromechanical and nanoelectromechanical systems and devices (MEMS & NEMS)
- Nanometer science and nanotechnology
- Nanostructured materials and devices including nanowires, nanoparticles and quantum dots, and organic and molecular electronics
- Photovoltaics, batteries, and other devices for energy conversion and storage
- Spintronics and magnetic devices
- Vacuum Measurement and Technology
