The Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) has named Dr. Teri W. Odom of Northwestern University as the new editor-in-chief of Nano Letters. The journal features fundamental research in all branches of the theory and practice of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Odom is the Charles E. and Emma H. Morrison professor of chemistry, chair of Northwestern’s chemistry department, and professor of materials science and engineering. Odom brings a wealth of knowledge of the editorial process to Nano Letters. Since 2013, she has been founding executive editor of ACS Photonics, and she has served on the editorial advisory board of Nano Letters since 2010. She currently serves on the editorial advisory boards of ACS Nano, Bioconjugate Chemistry, Materials Horizons and Annual Reviews of Physical Chemistry.
Odom’s research focuses on designing structured nanoscale materials with exceptional properties. She is an expert in designing structured nanoscale materials that exhibit extraordinary size and shape-dependent properties. She has pioneered a suite of multi-scale nanofabrication tools that have resulted in nanoparticle lattice optics that can manipulate light at the nanoscale, plasmon-based nanoscale lasers that exhibit tunable colour, and hierarchical nanowrinkles that show controlled wetting behaviour and switchable mechanical properties.
Nano Letters, established in 2001, is a monthly research journal with full hybrid open-access options for authors. It provides rapid disclosure of the key elements of a study, publishing preliminary, experimental and theoretical results on physical, chemical and biological phenomena, along with processes and applications of structures, within the nanoscale range. Among the areas of interest the journal encompasses are: synthesis and processing of organic, inorganic and hybrid nanosized materials by physical, chemical and biological methods; modelling and simulation of synthetic, assembly and interaction processes; characterisation of size-dependent properties; and realisation and application of novel nanostructures and nanodevices.
