Special Issue "Applications of Quantum Dots"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2019)
Quantum-confined semiconductor nanocrystals (quantum dots) are among the most interesting and important nanomaterials due to the range of their current and potential applications. These fascinating light-emitting nanomaterials are used in optoelectronics and photonics, including solar cells, solar concentrators, light emitting diodes (LEDs), displays, photodetectors and elements for quantum computing. Quantum dots have also found very important biomedical applications, such as biosensors, biolabels, assays for biological imaging and medical diagnostics and other uses. In addition the combination of quantum dots with other nanomaterials (e.g., plasmonic nanoparticles, graphene and other 2D nanomaterials) and various polymers resulted in many new hybrid composite materials with diverse potential applications.
This Special Issue will be focused on current and prospective applications of quantum dots in materials science, chemistry, physics, biology, medicine and other fields.

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 1600 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.
