The International Journal of Extreme Manufacturing is a multidisciplinary journal uniquely covering the areas related to extreme manufacturing. The journal is devoted to publishing original articles and reviews of the highest quality and impact in the areas related to extreme manufacturing, ranging from fundamentals to process, measurement and systems, as well as materials, structures and devices with extreme functionalities.
The International Journal of Extreme Manufacturing (IJEM) publishes original articles and reviews of the highest quality related to science and technology of manufacturing functional devices and systems with extreme dimensions (extremely large or small) and/or extreme functionalities, ranging from fundamental science to cutting-edge technologies that support the manufacturing of high-performance products involving emerging techniques and breaking the limits of currently known theories, methods, scales, environments, and performance.
Extreme manufacturing is specifically manifested in manufacturing with extremely high energy density, ultrahigh precision, extremely small spatial and temporal scales, extremely intensive fields, and giant systems with extreme complexity and number of factors. It involves multidisciplinary fields, including machinery, materials, optics, physics, chemistry, mechanics, and mathematics.
Subjects of interest include, but are not limited to, theory, process, metrology, characterization, equipment, conditions, and system integration in extreme manufacturing, as well as materials, structures and devices with extreme functionalities.
