Special Issue "New Materials for Nanophotonics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
The MDPI journal of Applied Sciences invites manuscript submissions in the topic of “New Materials for Nanophotonics”. Nanophotonics has played an important role in material research as well as in photonic devices. In nanophotonics, artificial structures are used to modulate the flow of light, enhance the light–matter interaction, or induce exotic electromagnetic properties. At the same time, new materials can add novel functionalities to nanophotonics, just like graphene enables tunability in plasmonics and metamaterials. This Special Issue focuses on the recent progress of materials and devices based on nanophotonics.
Topics of interest include (but not limited to) the following:
- Tunability of nanophotonic devices
- Low-dimensional materials for photonic devices
- Nonlinear materials for THz and mid-IR ranges
- Flexible photonic devices
- Materials for photonic sensors
- Materials for photon-based quantum computing

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1800 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.
