Special Issue Information
For the last few decades, quantum dots (QDs) have been the subject of extensive and intensive interdisciplinary research and development. This interest originates from the ability of QDs to localize charge carriers in all of the three dimensions. In this sense, QDs can be considered as “artificial atoms”. Since the concept of QD can be realized on different technological platforms using a very large variety of materials, it is very flexible and adoptive. As a result, QD-related research has spread over many different branches and scientific journals.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will attempt to bring together researchers from different fields across technology, materials science, fundamental and applied physics. Potential topics include but are not limited to:
- Synthesis, fabrication, self-organization, and self-ordering.
- Composite and hybrid structures, such as QD molecules, organic–inorganic hybrid, exciton–plasmon structures and others.
- Electronic and optical properties, single photon emitters, non-linear optical phenomena.
- Spin and magnetic phenomena, quantum coherence, and quantum information technologies.
- Applications for energy harvesting, light emission, sensors, detectors, etc.
All types of papers (full papers, communications, and reviews) are welcome.
Dr. Vladimir Chaldyshev
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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 semimonthly 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 2600 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.
