Special Issue Information
The interaction between the incident light (photons) and the collective oscillation of electrons on metal surfaces is being extensively investigated to focus light below the diffraction limit, which has enabled tremendous growth in nanoplasmonics in the last decades. The interesting capacity of confining light at the nanoscale through surface plasmon resonance is influenced by the surrounding medium and can be controlled by the size, shape, and material nature of the used nanostructures. Engineering and designing plasmonic nanostructures by several methods and techniques to control plasmon resonance and electromagnetic field localization is driving many studies in different areas of science and technology such as surface enhance spectroscopy, sensing, photovoltaics, photothermal therapy, antimicrobial agents, photocatalysis, etc.
Although the development of this area has increased the applications of plasmonic nanomaterials, as well as the new methods of nanofabrication, controlling and reproducing the desired plasmonic structures remains a major challenge to overcome.
This Special Issue will include research papers addressing the most recent developments in this field to summarize the current state of the art in the synthesis and characterization of nanoplasmonic structures:
- Synthesis and processing of plasmonic nanomaterials;
- Functional plasmonic nanostructures;
- Characterization of nanomaterials;
- Plasmonic nanofabrication.

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.
