Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanophotonics is now a rapidly growing interdisciplinary field of science, mainly due to the unique properties of optical waveguide nanostructures, obtained as a result of their interaction with photons. The most advanced systems are found in the currently used waveguide nanostructures, characterized by sophisticated optical properties and excellent thermal stability parameters required in modern nanomaterials. Therefore, the construction of such materials requires an interdisciplinary approach to combine fields of materials engineering and photonics.

One of the current directions of research in modern photonics is functional nanomaterials with luminescent and structural properties enabling the construction of new structures to be applied in integrated systems, precise sensors, optical memories, and medical applications. Therefore, particular attention is paid to creating different nanomaterials, such as noble metals nanoparticles, nanocrystals, nanorods, nanoceramics, etc., which can influence the luminescent properties of lanthanide ions and enable one to obtain new functional nanostructures.

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials focuses on fundamental nanostructured materials, nanocomposites glass and ceramics, and their luminescent and structural properties for photonic applications.

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.
