Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanophotonics is an interdisciplinary subject that combines nanoscience and photonics and studies the interaction between light and matter at the nanoscale. Nanophotonics has become an active research field in recent years with growing interest in the exploration of new physics, materials, devices, and related technologies. Among them, metamaterials, as one of the subfields of nanophotonics, have been developing rapidly. The term "metamaterial" was first proposed by Professor Rodger M. Walser. Later, it is generally understood that "metamaterial" is an artificial material. Metamaterials can possess extraordinary physical properties that cannot be achieved with natural materials.

The development of metamaterials and nanophotonics may lead to technological evolution in many fields. The progress is currently in the brewing stage and it deserves close attention and expectation. This Special Issue presents the most recent development trend by collecting and sorting out the research of experts and scholars in this field. It is hoped that the collection can broaden the ideas of exploration for relevant researchers and pave the way for future research and communities.

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.
