    The fifth volume in Jenny Stanford Series on Intelligent Nanosystems, entitled Outlooking Beyond Nanoelectronics and Nanosystems: Ultra Scaling, Pervasiveness, Sustainable Integration, and Biotic Cross-Inspiration, collects global reviews on (1) the historical cross-inspiration of technologies with nature, their evolution towards nanoelectronic and nanosystem components and their sustainability; (2) new materials, techniques, and pervasive applications out of mainstream; and (3) memristor foundation and new bioengineering developments. The covered topics include ultra scaling with its limits, alternatives and prospects, superior energy efficiency and pervasiveness to non-conventional applications; the evaluation of information technology sustainability, environmental impact and life cycles; prospective fabrication techniques, materials and components, their multifunctional extensions for characterization, fabrication, high-resolution quantum sensing, energy and information storage; life science–inspired memristors and edge of chaos; and bioengineering by nanostructured hybrid smart systems.

    Simon Deleonibus was chief scientist with CEA-Leti, a technology research unit of French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission, where his research focused on architectures of micro- and nanoelectronic devices. He retired in January 2016. Before joining CEA-Leti in 1986, he was with Thomson Semiconductors (1981–1986), where he developed advanced microelectronic devices and products. He obtained his PhD in applied physics from Paris University, France (1982). He is a visiting professor at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan, since 2014; National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan, since 2015; and Chinese Academy of Sciences, China, since 2016. Dr Deleonibus is a distinguished CEA research director (2002), IEEE distinguished lecturer (2004), fellow of the IEEE (2006), and emeritus fellow of the Electrochemical Society (2015). He is a recipient of the titles Chevalier de l’Ordre National du Mérite (2004), Chevalier de l’Ordre des Palmes Académiques (2011), the Grand Prix de l’Académie des Technologies (2005), and IEEE Cledo Brunetti Award (2022).
