Special Issue "Plasmonic Materials"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2015)
In the last five years, materials research has made a significant impact on the fields of plasmonics and metamaterials. Plasmonics and metamaterials require materials that have good optical properties, which are easy to pattern into nanostructures and easy to integrate together. Many classes of materials that can substitute noble metals in applications spanning across wide spectral ranges have been previously demonstrated; semiconductors, oxides, perovskite oxides, metal nitrides, silicides and germanides are a few to mention. This rapidly growing field is the focus of the forthcoming issue, ‘Plasmonic Materials’. The issue covers a broad range of topics related to plasmonic materials, but not limited to the growth and characterization of novel plasmonic materials, optical losses, tunability, chemical stability, CMOS compatibility, refractory materials and 2D materials.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
