This issue of the Nanotechnology TOE covers the latest innovations in the field of nanocoatings for solar panels, graphene for batteries production, and carbon nanotubes-based coatings to prevent ice build-up on aircraft. These innovations can be used in various applications such as energy and industrial processing, and healthcare. Additionally, this TOE includes an innovation focused on simple production of nanosensors and nanoarrays to detect cancer cells, silk-based nanostructures for flexible electronics, tunable metamaterials for healthcare applications, and auxetic material for body armor. A novel nanotribological 3D printing technology for additive manufacturing of nanostructures, and a microstructure layered material for improved efficiency of perovskite-silicon tandem solar cells are also presented in the TOE. The Nanotech TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights on nanotechnology-related innovations and their impact across various industries. Technology focus areas include nanomaterials, nanocoatings, nanohealthcare, nanomedicine, and nanomanufacturing. The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries. Keywords: Perovskite-silicon tandem solar cells, self-cleaning coating, nanosensor, CMOS production, graphene, graphene lithium batteries, cancer detection, carbon nanotubes, CNT, silk-based materials, auxetic material, metamaterial, nanotribological printing, 3D printing, additive manufacturing, AM
