Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Plasmon drag effect (PLDE) and plasmogalvanic effect (PLGE) greatly enhance the photoinduced electric currents in nanostructured materials in the conditions of surface plasmon resonance (SPR) and in structured electromagnetic fields. The study of PLDE and PLGE reveals the fundamental nature of structured optical fields, the electronic response of nanomaterials and light–matter interactions. These phenomena attract considerable attention due to their comprehensive nature, encompassing the topics of optical force and torque distribution in matter, ultrafast optics, quantum plasmonics and hot electron kinetics and providing information on plasmon-assisted transfer of conserved quantities (energy, momentum, spin angular momentum) in light–matter interactions. PLDE is a promising and very important method for various applications ranging from plasmonic based electronics to sensing and optoelectronics.

It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to the forthcoming Special Issue “Plasmon Drag Effect and Plasmogalvanic Phenomena in Nanostructured Materials” in Materials (Impact Factor 2.467). Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2300 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.
