Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Due to their unique size-dependent properties, nanomaterials have attracted significant attention in the field of photoelectricity. The photoelectric properties of nanomaterials are closely related to their size, shape, and composition. Device applications of nanomaterials refer to the use of nanoscale materials in the development of various electronic devices. Nanomaterials possess unique properties, including a high surface area, high reactivity, and excellent electrical conductivity, making them ideal for use in devices such as sensors, light-emitting diodes, photodetectors, catalysts, optoelectronic memory devices, and solar cells. For example, graphene and nanowires can be used to develop highly sensitive photodetectors, while quantum dots are being used to develop efficient solar cells. Nanomaterials can also be used as analysis tools in the fabrication of highly sensitive optical sensors for detecting various chemicals, biomolecules, and gases, since the high surface-area-to-volume ratio of these materials increases their sensitivity to small changes in the environment. The use of nanomaterials in device applications has the potential to revolutionize various industries and improve our daily lives in a variety of ways.

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will cover all aspects of the optoelectronic properties and applications of nanomaterials, from manufacturing to their physical and chemical properties, and further to device applications. We invite you to submit original research articles and reviews for this Special Issue. We also request that you inform researchers who are interested in nanomaterials about this Special Issue.

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 2900 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.
