The sectionnamed, Surfaces and Interfaces, of the journal CurrentPhysics publishes original research articles, letters,reviews/mini-reviews, and guest-edited thematic issues on various topicsrelated to surfaces and interfaces.
This section is notlimited to a specific aspect of the field but is instead devoted to a widerange of sub-fields in the area. Articles of interdisciplinary nature areparticularly welcome. Submissions in the following areas are of specialinterest to the readers of this journal:
· Analytical techniques for probing and analyzing surfaces and interfaces.
· Interfacial engineering at the coating-substrate interface for tools,dies, and molds.
· Interfacial engineering of multilayer thin films and optical coatings.
· Nanostructured and functionalized surfaces and interfaces for biologicaland engineered applications.
· Physical and chemical fundamentals of surfaces and interfaces.
· Physical and chemical processing of surfaces and interfaces to achievenew functionality.
· Surfaces and interfaces phenomena occurred at the energy storage and inproduction devices.
· Techniques forsurface modification of materials at submicron scale for industrial, energy,and environmental applications.
Dongfang Yang received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of Guelph in 1995. He joined the National Research Council of Canada in 2001 and is now a Senior Research Officer. His current research interests include laser materials processing; pulsed laser, sputtering and e-beam deposition of thin films; new materials development for energy storage devices; chemical and optical sensors development; and electrochemical studies of organic adsorption and self-assembly monolayer. He is currently serving as a member of the editorial board for 9 scientific journals. He also holds an Adjunct Professorship at Western University in Ontario, Canada.
Prof. Wang is now working as a full professor at the Wuhan National Laboratory for Optoelectronics in Huazhong University of Science and Technology. His research interests include laser material processing technology, additive manufacturing technology (3D printing), interactions of laser with materials, laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy, and laser preparation of new materials. Prof. Wang has achieved 5 Chinese government awards for scientific and technological progress. He also has published more than 120 papers and has authorized 45 invention patents.
Francesco Freddi is an associate professor of Solid and structural mechanics in the Department of Engineering and Architecture, University of Parma. His research activities focus on fracture, damage mechanics, cohesive interface, delamination, chemomechanical models and structural health monitoring. He coordinates with a number of national and international research institutions, and has collaborated in research projects with academic and industrial partners.
Luigi Gentile received his Ph.D. in Mesophases and Mesomorphic materials from the University of Calabria, Italy, in 2011. He was a senior researcher at Lund University, Sweden, until 2018 when he joined the University of Bari, Italy, and is now an Associate Professor in Physical Chemistry. He is also a permanent member of the Center for Colloid and Surface Science (CSGI). His current research interests include SAOS and LAOS shear rheology; lyotropic liquid crystals and surfactants; cellulose dissolution and regeneration; colloidal features of soil organic matter; shear-induced phase transitions; self-assembled structures as delivery carriers; active packaging and nanostructures.
Dr. Cong Wang is the Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Central South University. His research activities are focused on ultrafast laser micro-/nanofabrication. Dr. Wang has authored 69 papers in international journals and 10 patents. The papers have been cited more than 1000 times. Up to now, the ultrafast laser manufacturing system for functional micro/nanostructures is preliminarily established, which are already applied in many fields.
