Special Issue "Optical and Electronic Properties of Carbon-Based Nanomaterials and Composites"
A special issue of C — Journal of Carbon Research (ISSN 2311-5629).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2019).
Interests: advanced materials; bulk and nanostructured silica systems; carbon related materials; magnetic and optical properties of point defects in pure and doped silica; optical fibers; 2D materials
We are pleased to present our project, a Special Issue of the Journal C, focusing on the optical and electronic properties of carbon-related nanomaterials. We would like to join the competences of researchers in the field of nanosized C-based structures, starting from 2D graphene and its ‘’extended family’’, like graphene oxide, nanotubes, and fullerenes, all the way to carbon dots (CDs) and diamond like carbon, thus covering the whole hierarchy of C-based 0D to 3D nanometric structures. The proposed Special Issue will also cover composites like graphene-nanoparticles, graphene-molecules, nanostructures and oxide, polymer included C-nanomaterials, and CD-based composites
The main focus of the project is on the electronic properties of the investigated materials, which means the following: transport, doping, energy gap modification, Fermi level shift, and on the optical properties targeting the absorption and fluorescence emission processes, also in connection to optical emitting, light harvesting, and photocatalytic devices, but not excluding fundamental aspects like charge and energy transfer dynamics. Within this framework, proper attention should also be given to the structural characterization of materials and the consideration of growth processes, as well as their exploitation for sensing and catalysis.
The reported manuscripts will represent both the experimental and the theoretical point of view, including simulative works. The final target is to give readers an overview of the hot topics and the state-of-the-art of C-related nanoscience, based on a largely interdisciplinary perspective typical of materials science.

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. C — Journal of Carbon Research is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
