Nanowires, as an innovative one-dimensional (1D) nanostructure, have recently attracted great interest in a wide range of technological applications from photovoltaics, thermoelectrics, electronics, and optics to electrochemical energy storage and conversion devices due to their peculiar physical, morphological, mechanical. and structural properties. At present, a great variety of nanowire-based materials, such as polymers, oxides, nitrides, metals or semiconductors, among others, were achieved by means of numerous experimental procedures. In this direction, a large spectrum of synthesis techniques and theoretical models has allowed us to understand and unveil the enormous potential of nanowires in terms of their performances. However, in spite of the tremendous efforts conducted in the last decade in this domain, important technical challenges regarding the synthesis of novel materials and the comprehension of their performances are critical to accomplish the new perspectives of nanowires in the near future.
The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together the latest developments on experimental synthesis techniques and theoretical models in the area of nanowires, as well as their evaluation in important emergent research fields ranging from energy storage to optoelectronics. Consequently, all researchers are invited to contribute original research results in form of scientific papers, short communications or review-style articles concerning experimental, theoretical, and technological aspects and applications of nanowires.

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 2000 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.
