Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the past two decades, we have witnessed tremendous growth in the areas of electronics, photonics, bionics, and magnetic devices. These advancements have become ubiquitous in our daily lives and have even changed the way we think. Moreover, this trend continues unabated. To continually benefit society, more advanced devices are being developed and investigated. Unfortunately, device performance is often limited by material properties. Unlike conventional bulk materials, nanomaterials with huge surface-to-volume ratios offer unique electrical, optical, thermal, magnetic, and chemical properties that collectively contribute to the development of advanced devices that are lighter, faster, and of higher performance and low power consumption. To take full advantage of nanomaterials in devices, more research should be conducted in the areas of preparation, characterization, performance, and safety.

In this Special Issue of Nanomaterials, we expect contributions from a broad community of scientists and engineers working on nanomaterials for various device applications, including electronics, photonics, bionics, and magnetic devices. We also anticipate manuscripts dealing with the safety of nanomaterials embedded in advanced 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 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.
