Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to contribute to the Special Issue of Nanomaterials, which is devoted to various preparation and characterization methods of different kinds of nanocomposites and nanostructured glass–ceramic systems, including: materials with special electrical and magnetic properties, systems of minimal thermal expansion, with special optical properties, machinable glass–ceramics, high-strength and high-toughness systems, bioactive glass–ceramics, and others (not mentioned above).

In the Special Issue, we hope to present a big variety of experimental methods used to study physical properties of nanostructured glass–ceramics and nanocomposites, including their microstructure, morphology, chemical and phase composition, and also mechanical, thermal, electric, magnetic, and optical properties. The issue is open for contributions related to various aspects of transport phenomena in glass–ceramics and nanocomposites, such as thermal, electronic, ionic, and mixed conductivity. The studies of other physical phenomena, connected with structural, mechanical, optical, dielectric, and magnetic properties of nanocomposites and glass–ceramics are also expected.

The Special Issue is mainly devoted to the processing, characterization, and application of nanostructured glass–ceramics (e.g., in all-solid-state batteries and many other devices), but contributions focused on basic research and computer simulations are also very welcome.

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 papers will be 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 monthly 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 2000 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.
