The Journal of New Technology and Materials (JNTM) is a publishing forum for students, industrial researchers, and professionals to present original research findings and developments in materials science and technology. It focuses on research results in all aspects of materials science and engineering, in particular, those in nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Its editorial board includes specialists in theoretical physics, applied physics, metallurgy, chemistry, theoretical chemistry, nuclear physics, ceramics, semiconductors, electronic devices, spintronics, spectroscopy, the life sciences, electrotechnical engineering, electronic engineering, and chemical engineering. It has both a local advisory board (from Algerian universities) and an international advisory board (from France, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Jordan, Syria, Bahrain, Tunisia, Greece, Germany, and the United States).
Articles here are highly specialized and technical, with abstracts and full-color PDFs immediately available online. Recent articles include “Simulation of a photovoltaic pumping system using the flux oriented control,” “The electrochemical nucleation and properties of the Co-Cu alloys thin films deposited on FTO substrate,” “Investigation of Impact Strength and Hardness of Aluminum based SiC Particle Reinforced Composites,” and “Influence of Optical Kerr Nonlinearity on the Dynamic Behaviour of Quantum Cascade Laser.” Illustrations here are very high quality. The journal site is searchable, and papers accepted for the next issue are listed in advance.
This is a title that should be brought to the attention of materials scientists and nanotechnologists.
