Atomic layer deposition (ALD) is an ultrathin film deposition method. This technique permits the deposition of various materials (oxides, nitrides, metals, etc.) with a thickness control on the nanomateric scale, as well as excellent uniformity and conformality.
The aim of this Special Issue is to assemble high quality contributions on the synthesis and modification of nanostructures using ALD. It will deal with the design of new nanostructures by tuning their morphology, geometry, crystallinity, and interfaces. The relation between these parameters and the physical–chemical properties will also be investigated. New applications in different fields, such as health, environment, and renewable energy, will be explored as well.
Relevant contributions related to prospective materials’ design, original materials’ properties, and innovative characterization techniques will also be considered.

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. Materials 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 2000 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.
