In this Special Issue we wish to focus on the use of nanomaterials in MEMS and NEMS. We encourage reviews where nanomaterials have already made a significant contribution in this area: for example, increased functionality, novel processing or new areas of application, etc. We are particularly interested in papers which an application bias, especially comparison is made with other materials systems in MEMS and NEMS. Articles on design, fabrication, characterization and testing of MEMS/NEMS will be welcome. Articles exploring future leading edge opportunities are also welcome, where new materials may yet make an impact. The overall aim of this Special Issue is to provide a timely "snap-shot" of this exciting area, of value to technologists, scientists and innovators alike.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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 quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
