Special Issue "Electronic and Optical Properties of Nanostructures"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
Interests: R&D in nanoscience; physics of low-dimensional solid systems and nanostructures; electronic and optical properties of nanostructures; excitations of nanostructures: phonons, polarons, excitons, polaritons, and plasmons; linear and nonlinear optical spectroscopy
Recently, the progress has been impressive in the synthesis of various 0D, 1D, and 2D nanostructures based on dielectric, semiconductor, and metallic materials, as well as based on their composites, including metamaterials. Such nanostructures are successfully used in electronics, photonics, sensing, biology, and medicine. Also of interest are carbon nanostructures (based on graphene or carbon dots), plasmon nanostructures, and the use of perovskites as key materials in nanostructures. The rapid development of technology for creating new nanostructures requires the research community to comprehensively analyze their electronic and optical properties. This analysis will provide a deeper understanding of the physics of low-dimensional systems and will broaden the scope of nanostructure applications.
This Special Issue will highlight the latest advances in the study of electronic and optical properties of various types of nanostructures. We invite researchers to submit their original research articles, letters, and reviews on fundamental and applied studies of nanostructures.
