Nano-optics and nano-optoelectronics currently represent one of the most active scientific and technological frontiers. By combining the achievements of photonics and nano-technology to realize thoroughly novel optical, electronic and optoelectronic functions, nano-optics and nano-optoelectronics have become indispensable in science and technology. After tremendous endeavors, nano-optics and nano-optoelectronics have already departed from their infancy and stepped into an exciting era, where research ideas and theoretical concepts are being vigorously transferred into functional devices and real-life applications. A great deal of work on nano-optics and nano-optoelectronics has been done thus far, and the achievements exhibit great application prospects in optical communication, optical interconnection, optical memory, sensing and imaging, metrology, display and lighting, medicine, security, green energy, etc. The research in this field is becoming increasingly wide-spread.
In order to review the present achievements and to promote the future developments of nano-optics and nano-optoelectronics, Nanomaterials is publishing this Special Issue, “Nano-Optics and Nano-Optoelectronics: Challenges and Future Trends”. It will collect reviews, state-of-the-art works, newest research progresses on as well as the fundamental physics and practical technology in the fields of nano-optics and nano-optoelectronics. Topics include, but are not limited to, nano-optics and photonics, silicon photonics, integrated photonics, nano-optoelectronics, optoelectronic integration, flat optics, photonic and plasmonic nanomaterials, metamaterials and metasurfaces, strong light-matter interactions at the nanoscale, nano-antennas, nano-waveguide chips, nano-optomechanics, nano-lasers, nano-optoelectronic detectors, quantum nano-optics, nonlinear and ultrafast nano-optics, topological photonics, and non-reciprocal nano-optics.
We are expecting for your excellent papers, and we believe that your contribution will help to accelerate the advancement of nano-optics and nano-optoelectronics.

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.
