Interests: Theoretical aspects of 2D materials; topological materials; metamaterials
Nanoscale lengths are critical for electron transport, light confinement or heat management, among others. As such, nanomaterials have revolutionized our understanding and opportunities for efficient energy conversion. By carefully selecting, merging, synthesizing or patterning materials at the nanoscale, many fundamental energy transfer pathways can be manipulated and exploited.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials aims at highlighting articles reporting novel properties and phenomena in energy conversion by employing nanostructured materials. It focuses on the fabrication, properties, and prospective applications of nanostructures and nanomaterials in the forms of reviews, communications, and academic articles. The topics cover a wide range of research fields, either from an experimental or theoretical viewpoint, including nanofabrication, synthesis, 2D materials, hybrid nanomaterials, photocatalysis, electrocatalysis, perovskites, solar cells, plasmonics and nanophotonics, nonlinear optical phenomena, topological materials, metasurfaces, nanoscale heating, and thermal phenomena, among others.

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.
