Special Issue "Electrical, Thermal and Optical Properties of Nanocarbon Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019
Researchers’ interest in carbon nanostructures has been ignited worldwide since their discovery. Carbon nanotubes, graphene, and other forms of carbon have shown remarkable thermal, electrical, and optical properties. This has given us hope that, thanks to them, we will be able to replace many traditionally used materials at present, the performance of which is often close to their theoretical limits.
It is my pleasure to invite you to this Special Issue of Materials, which aims to discuss recent findings in the area of their electrical, thermal, and optical properties with a special focus on how microstructure and composition affects them. In particular, it would be worthwhile to elaborate on how the modification of these nanocarbon architectures influences the way these materials interact with light and/or transfer electrical/thermal energy. These factors should be considered for both individual nanocarbon macromolecules such as nanotubes/flakes and their networks in the form of fibers/thin films.
Contributions such as communications, regular articles, or reviews are all welcome.
Dr. Dawid Janas
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 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.
