The Nanoscale (IF = 6.233) has published the review on Comparative Advantages and Limitations of the Basic Metrology Methods Applied to Characterization of Nanomaterials

The article Comparative Advantages and Limitations of the Basic Metrology Methods Applied to Characterization of Nanomaterials by Pavel Linkov, Mikhail Artemyev, and Igor Nabiev of LNBE and Anton Efimov of the Laboratory of Bionanotechnology of the Shumakov Federal Research Center of Transplantology and Articial Organs, which, as we reported earlier, was accepted by the Nanoscale published by the UK Royal Society of Chemistry, has appeared on the web as an Advance Article.

The growing number of nanomaterials calls for revision of the existing basic metrology methods used in materials science and estimate their applications in terms of nanostructure analysis. This issue is the subject of the newly published review.

The paper considers more than 15 methods of electron microscopy, scanning probe microscopy, X-ray spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction, and optical spectroscopy as applied to characterization of nanomaterials.

The Nanoscale  publishes experimental and theoretical studies in all branches of nanoscience and nanotechnology. It ranks 19th among 239 multidisciplinary journals in the Materials Science category and 12th among 127 journals in the Applied Physics category.
