The conventional research field of energy and the emerging field of nanotechnology integrate together and breed a promising multidisciplinary field of nano-energy. Nano-energy research dedicates to improving existing or developing new approaches to energy production, storage, conversion and usage with ultra-high efficiency and minimum environment impact. In the context of increasingly acute worldwide shortages of energy supplies and environment issues, the importance of nano-energy research is clearly growing day by day. Scientific literatures on nano-energy, as a part of research performance, also have remarkably increased in recent years. However, few studies have quantitatively investigated the research performance on nano-energy from a multi-dimensional and longitudinal perspective so far to the knowledge of us. Thereby, our purpose in this paper is to comprehensively explore nano-energy scientific research profiles during 1991-2012 based on bibliometric method and social network analysis technique. We firstly investigate the growth pattern of literatures on nano-energy research, and then carry out cross-country comparisons on its quantities and qualities of top ten productive countries. Moreover, we build international scientific collaborative networks for three four-year intervals respectively to examine international collaborative profiles in nano- energy field. Our main finds can be summarized as follows: (1) Scientific research output of nano-energy presents emerging discipline?s impressively exponential growth pattern. (2) As measured by nano-energy literatures? quantities and qualities of top ten most productive countries, USA invariably holds a dominant position in nano-energy research field during 1991-2012. China becomes a new major contributor in this field. Because China has exceeded several European countries and it is also gradually catching up with USA in research performance. (3) Across three four-year intervals, international collaborative intensities of the analyzed countries are relatively high, especially for five European countries. Besides, USA and certain European countries dominate the international collaborative network, however the network is rapidly expanding worldwide and China has become the most closely bilateral collaborator for USA.
