Special Issue Information
Resonators in the classical sense are artificial structures that enhance signals at specific wavelengths via modes governed by geometrical parameters. Nanotechnology has opened the avenues to designing and fabricating nanoresonators, which can be excited by light despite their subwavelength size-scale. This is due to mode confinement in metallic structures, which is enabled by the excitation of plasmonic modes. Design and application of plasmonic nanoresonators is an inspiring, beautiful, and rapidly developing research area. All phenomena of photonic resonators have been rediscovered, and analogous theoretical approaches have been developed, thus initializing novel classes of applications. The uniqueness of nanoresonators is that the large local electromagnetic-field enhancement is accompanied by a small mode volume, which allows improving fluorescence due to the Purcell effect and realizing permanent modification of materials in nanolithography. Non-classical light–matter interaction phenomena including strong coupling and collective emission as well as lasing have unique characteristics originating from the involved plasmonic modes. Thus, it becomes possible to realize all-optical signal processing, to catch and monitor individual as well as interacting molecules in intracavity sensing, and to localize them by overcoming the diffraction limit in imaging. Moreover, light–matter interaction phenomena can be completely controlled in space and time simultaneously in predesigned nanoresonators.
As a guest editor at the Nanomaterials journal of MDPI, I would like to call your attention to the Special Issue on “Plasmonics Nanoresonators”. We welcome submissions of both original research papers and reviews on this topic.
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.
