Special Issue "Superconductivity in Nanoscaled Systems"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2020.
2 NANOTECH Centre, Ural Federal University, 19 Mira St., Ekaterinburg, 620002, Russia
Interests: fundamentals of conventional and unconventional superconductivity; hydrogen-rich superconductors; 2D intrinsic and proximity-induced superconductivity; nanoscaled ferroelectric materials; shock-wave phsyics and applications; practical iron-based and cuprate superconductors
Within the last five years, experimental discoveries of intrinsic superconductivity in high-entropy alloys, highly-compressed hydrides, quasicrystals, approximant crystals, few layer stanene, and magic-angle twisted Dirac-cone materials have heralded a new era in this nearly 110-year-old field of science and technology. All these discoveries are associated with newly created/developed nanomaterials. This Special Issue aims to cover the latest aspects of these discoveries encompassing their fundamental understanding, basic properties, synthesis and fabrication routes, device methods, first-principles calculations, and other related topics. The format of welcomed articles includes full papers, communications, and reviews. Potential topics include but are not limited to:
- First-principles exploration of hydrogen-rich superconductors;
- Experimental discoveries in highly-compressed hydrides;
- Superconductivity in magic-angles twisted 2D nanosheets;
- Experimental and theoretical studies of high-entropy alloys superconductors;
- Theory and experiment in superconducting quasicrystals and approximant crystals;
- Enhanced superconductivity in 2D and 1D limits;
- Hybrids nanoscaled ferroelectric/superconducting nanoscaled systems.

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.
