TNB publishes basic
and applied research papers dealing with the study of bio-molecules,
cells, tissues, and their assemblies into higher level constructs in
the nanometer range with respect to engineering, physics, chemistry,
modeling, and computer science. The content of acceptable pa-
pers ranges from
experimental results, technological development, formalized
mathematical theory and mathematical techniques to engineering and
medical/clinical/environmental applications and reviews.
encouraged to submit manuscripts as regular papers or communications.
To qualify for publication, these must be previously unpublished and not be under
consideration elsewhere. Manuscripts should be sent, preferably in
electronic form, directly to the Editor-in-Chief

paper is accepted, one additional copy of the manuscript must be
submitted to the Editor-in-Chief in single-spaced, double-column format
using 10-point type, with ﬁgures embedded. The front page of the paper
version must bear the signature of the corresponding author. The style
ﬁle can be found at http://www.ieee.org/pubs/subs_elec.html. This copy
will serve as conﬁrmation of the publication length of the manuscript
submission. The signature signiﬁes the author’s conﬁrmation that over
