Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Because of their unique structural, physicochemical, and (most importantly) spectroscopic properties, nanosized luminescent materials with improved performance have piqued the interest of many researchers in recent years. Aside from their use in traditional phosphor technologies such as fluorescent lamps, light-emitting diodes, emission displays, X-ray detectors, and tomography, luminescent nanomaterials continue to make advances in security (banknotes, identification documents, etc.), biological labeling (e.g., in research and non-invasive medical diagnosis), sensing, and photovoltaics. Their spectroscopic and physicochemical properties can be fine-tuned to meet specific requirements. The present multidisciplinary Special Issue aims to publish state-of-the-art manuscripts concerning synthesis, investigations, and applications of luminescent nanomaterials in various areas of research. The topics of interest for the Issue tentatively include but are not limited to:

  • Synthesis of novel luminescent nanomaterials;
  • Nanostructured optical materials for biomedical applications, such as biological imaging, biosensors, and photothermal therapy;
  • Luminescent nanoparticles for lighting, imaging, and security applications from UV to mid-infrared spectral regions;
  • New inorganic and organic nanomaterials for spectral conversion;
  • Nanomaterials for luminescent thermometry;
  • Nanomaterials for physical and chemical sensing.

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 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. Nanomaterials 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 2600 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.
