1D Nanostructures: Controlled Fabrication and Energy Applications

Description

1D nanostructures as a series of the most important materials possess fascinating physical properties determined by their special shapes and structures and have wide applications in solar energy conversion, thermoelectric devices, energy storage technology, and so on. Global energy and environmental problems have aroused lots of research on preparation technology of 1D nanostructures because of the distinct structure-dependent properties and on exploring energy applications. Recent advances in 1D nanostructures have introduced various ways to promote the efficiency of energy conversion and storage. However, the controlled fabrication and energy applications of 1D nanostructures should be further improved from a practical point of view. New research topics and current progress on the related areas need to be summarized and also exchanging ideas in the entire community to accelerate the development of 1D nanostructures.

We invite investigators to contribute original research papers as well as review papers that will stimulate the continuing efforts in the field of 1D nanostructures, including synthesis methods, characterizations, composite structure, and further energy applications and improve our understanding of the relative key scientific problems. We are particularly interested in papers describing the new methods for the controlled fabrication of 1D nanostructures with novel morphology, arrays, and composite structures, which may greatly benefit their energy conversion and storage performances. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Nanowires, nanorods, nanotubes, and so on
  • Intelligent 1D nanostructural materials
  • 1D nanobiomaterials
  • Arrays, assembly, and composites of 1D nanostructures
  • Growth density, shape, size and nucleation–controlled synthesis of 1D nanostructures
  • Controlled fabrication of hierarchical 1D nanostructure
  • Growth and controlled mechanism and structure stability
  • Quantum confinement effect and size/shape effects
  • Light trapping structures in 1D solar cells
  • Advanced and detailed performance characterization in energy conversion and storage properties for 1D nanostructure
  • Optical, thermal, and electrical simulation on 1D nanostructures/devices
  • Applications of 1D nanostructures especially in solar energy conversion, thermoelectric devices, energy storage technology, and so forth
  • Recent developments in energy conversion and storage properties
