Editorial board

The Editor-in-Chief of Nanotechnology provides leadership and management of the Editorial Boards and influences the strategy of the Journal, in co-operation with the Publisher.

The Editorial Boards consist of an Executive Editorial Board, focusing on advocacy and commissioning, and a non-executive Editorial Board, focussing on advocacy and peer review, with membership of both Editorial Boards comprising groups of prominent scientists in the Journal’s field. The role of the Editorial Boards is to act as ambassadors for the Journal and IOPP; to foster strong and loyal relationships between the Journal and the scientific community and to channel community feedback to IOPP.

Nanotechnology also has an advisory panel.


Ray LaPierre, McMaster University, Canada
Semiconductor nanowires, growth and applications of nanowires, self-assembled monolayers on III-V surfaces

Ray LaPierre attended Dalhousie University (Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada) where he obtained a B.Sc. degree in Physics in 1992. He then completed his M.Eng. degree in 1994 and Ph.D. degree in 1997 in the Engineering Physics Department at McMaster University (Hamilton, Ontario, Canada). His graduate work involved development of molecular beam epitaxy of InGaAsP alloys for laser diodes in telecom applications. Upon completion of his graduate work in 1997, he joined JDS Uniphase (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) where he developed dielectric coatings for wavelength division multiplexing devices. In 2004, he rejoined McMaster University as an Assistant Professor in the Engineering Physics Department. He is currently Professor and Chair in the Engineering Physics Department with interests in III-V nanowires, molecular beam epitaxy, and applications in photovoltaics, photodetectors and quantum information processing. He has over 98 publications, 50 invited presentations, and 138 conference presentations related to nanowires. He is also a Board Member of the journal Nano Express.
