Colloidal quantum dots (QDs) have been widely studied in the past few decades. Researchers and scientists have made great efforts to research and develop QDs for next generation displays (include micro-display), with ultra-wide color gamut and high performance QD photovoltaics. However, there are still existing difficulties and problem which need to be overcome and solved, such as scalable synthetic process, better carrier transport, stability and reliability, and Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) for QDs and nanostructures.
We invite authors to contribute original research articles and review articles covering current progress on the preparation and the usage of QDs for displays and solar cells Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Cadmium Free Quantum Dots
- Quantum Dots for Live Cells, in Vivo Imaging, and Diagnostics
- Quantum dots to drive flexible displays
- Quantum dots stability and reliability
- Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) for QDs and nanostructures
- Quantum dot light emitting diodes
- Quantum dot solar cells
- Quantum dot luminescent solar concentrator

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 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.
