Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will cover interdisciplinary topics at the frontier of nanomaterials and nanodevices, covering a wide range of applications in nanophotonics, plasmonics and metamaterials, including plasmonic waveguides, 2D material nanostructures, metamaterials and metasurfaces, advanced developments and applications in nanophotonics, topological photonics and microwave photonics, light modulation, sensing and detection, metalens and their optical imaging, etc. Submissions should be devoted to research on nanomaterials and nanocomposites (perovskites, phase-change materials, 2D materials, 3D-structured nanomaterials, topological materials, etc.), device fabrications, advanced nanomaterials, optoelectronic and electromagnetic properties and the investigation of theoretical (and modeling of) structure–property relationships. Papers on areas not mentioned in the specified topics are also welcome if they are related to the theme of the Special Issue.

This Special Issue aims to provide a specialized platform for researchers working in this field where they can share new results, challenges and perspectives with regard to new advances in plasmonics, metamaterials and nanophotonics, light modulation and detection applications and roadmaps for new directions in this field.

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.
