Featured Articles

The IEEE Open Journal of Nanotechnology (OJ-NANO) is dedicated to publishing articles on timely topics in the field of nanotechnology by making them available immediately, freely, and permanently available to all. All articles published in OJ-NANO are exposed to 5 million unique monthly users of the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library. Also, OJ-NANO received its first Journal Impact of 1.7 and is now indexed in the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE)TM by Clarivate Analytics as well as in Scopus®! This development indicates increased visibility and profile for both the journal and its published articles, demonstrating IEEE OJ-NANO is a reliable and high-quality source of information in the field of nanotechnology.

Among numerous articles published so far, we’ve selected a few review articles to highlight here and encourage you to learn more about IEEE OJ-NANO.


Plasmon-Enhanced Photovoltaic Characteristics of Black Phosphorus-MoS2 Heterojunction

Hou Chaojian, Li Bo, Li Qingwei, Yang Lijun, Wang Yang, Yang Zhan and Dong Lixin

Publication Year: 2021, Page(s): 41 – 51

DOI: 10.1109/OJNANO.2021.3062495

In this article, a novel integrated strategy by embedding metallic plasmonic pentamers optical nano-antenna array (ONAA) onto overlap region of black phosphorus MoS2 p-n heterojunction is firstly exploited under both a near-infrared laser (λ = 830 nm) and standardized AM1.5G solar irradiation, demonstrating its potential for high-performance sensing and energy harvesting functional units in future wireless power supply micro/nano-systems.
