Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Gas-discharge plasma is a universal tool that makes it possible to obtain nanostructured materials of various morphologies and compositions. The wide range of applications of nanometers in various areas of human life makes the study of plasma processes of nanomaterial synthesis a very urgent task. This Special Issue welcomes works devoted to topical issues and problems of physical processes in the plasma synthesis of nanomaterials.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:       

  • Plasma sputtering and deposition.
  • Modeling of the physical properties of nanomaterials.
  • Physics of gas-discharge plasma.
  • Physics of dusty and non-ideal plasmas.
  • Interaction of plasma with matter.
  • Diagnostics of gas-discharge plasma.
  • Plasma chemistry.
  • Plasma in biomedical applications.

In December 2022, we are holding the third international conference "Gas-discharge plasma and synthesis of nanostructures" GDP-NANO 2022. This Special Issue, “Gas-discharge plasma and synthesis of nanostructures”, will promote the latest research work relevant to the fundamental and applied problems of gas-discharge plasma physics and synthesis of nanostructures, as part of the GDP-NANO 2022 conference (https://gdp-nano.com/en). Submissions of communications, full papers, and reviews are all welcome.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Kind regards,

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 2400 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.
