Nanocomposite Thin Films and 2D Materials
A section of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Nanocomposite thin films and 2D materials are emerging as an interesting class of functional materials with properties that go beyond the state of the art in many different technological areas. This Section of Nanomaterials deals with all aspects of the design, synthesis, characterization, and application of 2D materials and nanocomposite thin films, suitable for a widespread range of applications, such as health (drug delivery, biosensors), electronics and optoelectronics (sensors/actuators, recording media, MEMS/NEMS), environment, energy (supercapacitors, batteries, fuel cells), automotive and aerospace (ultra-hard coatings, radiation shields), internet of things, etc. The list of materials covered in this Section includes: 2D allotropes (graphene, silicene, 2D alloys, etc.), 2D compounds (graphene, hexagonal boron nitride, transition metal di-chalcogenides, etc.), as well as nanocomposite thin films (self-healing nanocomposites; shape memory and shape switching nanocomposite layers; piezoelectric, magnetocaloric, magnetoelectric, or halochromic nanocomposite films; planar nanocomposite metamaterials, etc.). Any aspect related to the fundamental understanding of the properties of these materials as well as their integration in devices is highly recommended for publication in the "Nanocomposite Thin Films and 2D Materials" Section of Nanomaterials.
