I have received many emails about people enquiring about the status of the paper
they submitted as a full length paper to IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology.
As many as 64 papers were received and the review process has been completed for some of them.
The review process has been delayed because there has been a change in the editorial board
where the former editor-in-chief, Philip Wong, has been replaced by Aristides Requicha
from the University of Southern California. The rest of the editorial board is basically the same
but Prof. Requicha is really doing his best to speed up the review. Some of you (including myself)
are still waiting on a response to a second submission after having gone through a first review.
At this point, we ask you for your patience. A request for the actual status of your paper should
be addressed directly to the journal and not to me since I am not part of the editorial board.
Thank you for your collaboration.
"Best Student Presentation" award, to Mark Budnik
School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Purdue University
who presented the paper entitled "Power delivery for nanoscale processors with single
wall carbon nanotubes interconnects". (co-authors: A. Raychowdhury, and K. Roy).
"Best Student Paper" award, to S. Harrer, Research Laboratory of Electronics,
Quantum Nanostructures and Nanofabrication Group (MIT)

each of which produces, on the average, a field emission current of 0.2 nA. The artwork
