SYDNEY, Australia, Nov. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Open access online journal,
AZoJono* (The AZo Journal of Nanotechnology Online) has released a special
nanotubes research edition in conjunction with DESYGN-IT*, an EU funded
collaborative research project that has been investigating the design,
synthesis, growth and application of nanotubes, nanowires and nanotube
arrays for industrial applications.

DESYGN-IT, is a collaborative research project between a number of Universities and SME partners from several of the member states of the EU.
The AZoJono special edition comprises seven research articles that focus on cutting edge carbon nanotube research, in particular the characterisation of nanotubes and their products. Applications areas discussed include the lithographic stamping of computer chips, connector wires for computer chips, flat screen displays, catalysts, electrodes, nanowires, miniature actuators and reinforced composite materials.
Professor Werner Blau from Trinity College Dublin, a leader in carbon nanotube research and the DESYGN-IT project co-ordinator stated, "We are very pleased to be able to release these papers online through the open access journal, AZoJono. For some time now, I've been well aware of how effective AZoJono is at distributing the latest Nanotech research findings to a large global audience."
AZoNano.com Chief Editor David Freund commented, "It is very pleasing to see the recognition that AZoJono is now receiving from leading Nanotech researchers such as the DESYGN-IT team. Some of our most popular Nanotech papers have now received over 40,000 page views and an involvement with groups such as DESYGN-IT confirms that AZoJono's open access approach using our patented OARS (Open Access Author Rewards) system is starting to gain some significant traction as a highly successful mechanism for researchers to broadcast their findings to the global Nanotech community."
Members of DESYGN-IT include Trinity College Dublin, National University of Ireland Cork, Jozef Stefan Institute, University of Ulster, Queen Mary and Westfield College, Queen University Belfast, Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, University of Cambridge, Toughglass, Sensor Technology & Devices, Mid Sweden University, Ntera, Mo6 and University of Latvia.
