Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recently, a new branch of condensed matter physics has emerged for the purpose of investigating the control of strongly induced electric and magnetic resonances in dielectric nanoparticles, having a high refractive index. When developing nanoantennas and metasurfaces, dielectric nanoparticles make it possible to reduce dissipative losses and achieve a significant resonant amplification of both the electrical and magnetic signals, dielectric metamaterials also contributing significant advances in optics and photonics. Compared to metallic materials—with the main disadvantages of a significant heat loss and low efficiency—, all-dielectric nanostructures with a high refractive index easily combine electrical and magnetic resonances, leading to the efficient control of such optical properties as the phase, amplitude, polarization and anisotropy. Future-proof technologies are driven by high-performance optical communications, being at the heart of ultra-fast computing, and will rely on densely packed reconfigurable optical schemes based on nanophotonics. Until recently, plasmonics have been considered the only available basis for nanoscale optics, but resonant dielectric nanostructured metamaterials provide more practical alternatives by exploiting resonances in dielectric nanoparticles and highly refractive index structures.

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.
