Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The study of electronic, optoelectronic, and photonic nanodevices (as well as their applications) is one of the leading topics of photonics research. However, because the materials used in them must be of extremely high quality, and the devices themselves must be extremely exact, systems that utilize optical components are intrinsically more difficult to miniaturize and improve. Such structures can provide novel material characteristics with unique functions on the surfaces of metals, semiconductors, dielectrics, or polymers, depending on the specific material parameters and the morphologies of the structures. A few other specific applications of nanomaterials include optical waveguides, optical modulators, saturable absorbers, and optical switches, as well as complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) sensors and optical biosensors for detecting various biomolecules. Finally, optical and photonic technologies have advanced recently, but the need for highly precise components makes their improvement more challenging than that of many other technologies.

This Special Issue focuses on the latest theoretical developments and practical applications of electronic, optoelectronic, and photonic nanodevices. It aims to attract both academic and industrial researchers in order to foster the current knowledge of nanomaterials and to present new ideas for future applications and new technologies.

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.
