Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials on “Optical properties of nanostructured thin films” will present the comprehensive research progress on the nanostructured thin films for optical applications. This covers the recent advancements in nanostructured thin films for utilizing optical properties including reflection, scattering, absorption, refraction, and plasmonic properties, as well as the unique optical properties discovered in the nanostructured thin films.  The Special Issue aims to attract both academic and industrial researchers in order to present current knowledge and novel ideas on nanostructured thin films for future applications and for the development of new technologies.

I invite authors to contribute their original research articles and review articles covering the significant progress of nanostructured optical thin films through the latest experimental and theoretical developments. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Fundamental studies and modeling of nanostructured thin films;
  • Nanostructured thin films for photonics, optoelectronics, photovoltaics, and plasmonics;
  • Challenging attempts to create nanostructured optical thin films for future devices;
  • Fabrication and characterization methods for nanostructured thin films;
  • Defects, fatigue, and reliability of the nanostructured thin films.

Prof. Dr. Nam-Hoon Kim
Guest Editor

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.
