Special Issue Information
Quantum effects, as we know, are relatively prominent in small-scale physical elements. In accordance with this, quantum properties of materials and electronic/photonic devices cannot be ignored as their size reaches to the nanometer range. The elucidation of quantum effects in quantum dots, quantum wells, nanowires, qubits, nanorobots, and superconducting quantum interference devices is important to understanding their optical and electronic properties. Electrons and photons constrained within these extremely small devices usually exhibit novel quantum confinement effects. We should inevitably regard quantum characteristics associated with them in order to clarify relevant physical properties.
For this reason, the analysis of quantum characteristics of nanomaterials and nano-sized device systems is growing in significance. An elegant combining of quantum mechanics with nanotechnology may possibly lead to the advent of exceptional quantum technology merged with innovative nanomaterials beyond our current technological limits. The eventual advancement of quantum information science depends upon this.
This Special Issue focuses on quantum effects in nanomaterials, nano-devices, nanoelectronic circuits, and other nanosystems. Quantum theory and its experimental verification, incorporated with nanophotonics and nano-optics, are of further particular interest. Research papers and reviews which characterize quantum properties of carbon nanotubes, graphenes and graphene-based materials, superconducting nano-devices, nano-biomaterials, etc. are welcome. Authors are also encouraged to submit articles related to various nanoscience issues which cannot be explained in the realm of classical mechanics.

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.
