Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials aims to present various topics centered on “Low Dimensional Nanomaterials and Their Applications”.

Different types will be considered, from zero-dimensional (0D) moieties, e.g., clusters, quantum dots, and nanoparticles, to one-dimensional (1D) species, e.g., nanotubes, nanowires, nanoribbons, and two-dimensional (2D) structures, e.g., nanosheets and nanowalls. This issue will include quantum materials and emerging phenomena, synthesis and growth, characterization, theoretical simulations. Potential applications in the fields of nanoelectronics, photonics and optoelectronics (photodetectors, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), and lasers), sensors (chemical, gas, biological, magnetic, and strain), and energy storage and conversion (supercapacitors, solar cells, thermoelectric devices and fuel cells) will be highlighted, as well as biomedical applications.

Both original research and review papers are welcome for possible publication.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Nanomaterials growth and synthesis;
  • Characterization: Microscopies, spectroscopies, and others;
  • Theory and simulation;
  • Quantum materials and emerging phenomena;
  • Physics, chemistry, and biological studies;
  • Novel applications;
  • Nanofabrication and devices.

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.
