Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Perovskite structures of different dimensions have become a prospective platform for modern nanophotonics owing to their outstanding optical and electronic properties. Recent advances in optically resonant nanostructures made of perovskites or integrated with perovskites provide a solid foundation for novel fundamental and technological breakthroughs. This Special Issue aims to reflect all these recent exciting developments. We invite researchers to submit their contributions that focus on optical effects in novel designs and device architectures based on various perovskites. Any format of article is welcome, including full papers, communications, perspectives, and reviews. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

-  fundamentals of optical effects in perovskite-based nanophotonic designs;
-  perovskite nano- and microlasers;
- nonlinear optics and nonlinear properties of perovskite nanostructures;
- novel fabrication methods for perovskite nanostructures for optical applications; and
- perovskite-based solar cells, photodetectors, sensors, lasers, or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) powered by smart nanophotonic designs.

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.
