Special Issue "Thermal Properties of Alloy Nanomaterials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2021.
Control of thermal energy in and out of a device is a fundamental issue in all applications. For the device to perform at its maximum, the importance of tailoring the thermal properties of materials utilized in the device cannot be stressed enough. For example, for light-emitting diodes (LED), materials with high thermal conductivity are demanded in order to extract heat easily from the device. On the contrary, heat transfer in thermoelectric materials must be minimized to maximize the efficiency of their module. The classical heat transfer phenomena become complicated once nanostructured materials are utilized instead of bulk material.
Here, this Special Issue will address theoretical/experimental works where thermal properties of the nanostructured alloy have been tailored. Potential topics include, but not limited to:
- Thermal properties of nanostructured thermoelectric materials (0D, 1D, 2D, 3D)
- Thermal properties of colloidal quantum dots
- Thermal properties of nanostructured solar cells
- Thermal properties of nanostructured batteries and their components

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 2200 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.
