Interests: electrical and optical properties of 2D materials, graphene, carbon nanotubes, and composite materials; field effect transistors with graphene and non-carbon-based 2D materials; Van der Waals heterojunctions of 2D layered materials and their applications, such as photodetectors, solar cells and chemical sensors; non-volatile memories; CMOS technologies; FinFETs; solid-state radiation detectors; field emission
Carbon nanostructures, such as carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and graphene, are innovative materials with amazing mechanical, electrical, optical, and thermal properties. Over the past two decades, they have been extensively studied and used in a variety of fundamental research and engineering applications. Carbon nanotubes and graphene, as well as their hybrid structures with nanoparticles, other 2D materials, polymers, etc., have been exploited in devices such as field effect transistors, photodiodes, solar cells, field emitters, supercapacitors, gas sensor, bio- and chemical sensors, and many others.
The aim of this Special Issue is to summarize recent progress in the fabrication, characterization and modeling of carbon nanotube and graphene based electronic devices, sensors and actuators. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
Graphene and carbon nanotube field effect transistors
Van der Waals layered 2D heterostructures
Metal contacts on graphene and nanotubes
Field emission devices
Opto-electronic devices (photodiodes, phototransistors, LEDs)
Chemical and biological sensors
Energy applications (batteries, capacitors, catalysis, solar cells)

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. Nanomaterials 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 1200 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.
