Description

Exploration of engineered nanomaterials for optical devices is today’s urgent need since nanotechnology has given us a firm hope of improving the performance of conventional optical devices. Thus, in the light of “nanoscience and nanotechnology,” the conventional optical materials are being revisited and also new nanomaterials are coming to the light. Advances in chemistry and physics are providing an expanding array of nanomaterials with unique and powerful optical properties. The size and cost of optical devices are reducing day by day utilizing the engineered nanomaterials. These nanomaterials also provide a new set of utensils to scientists/engineers who seek new tools for fluorescence, optical sensors, biomedical imaging, optical therapeutics, and so forth.

In the recent years, various metal/semiconductor nanocrystals have been discovered having unique optical properties. The luminescent nanocrystals, also termed as “nanophosphors,” have shown enhanced luminescence efficiency and shortening of radiative lifetime by orders of magnitude from milliseconds to nanoseconds when compared with the bulk counterparts. These promising properties along with the possibility of synthesizing such materials by chemical methods, engineering them for particular application, would continue to attract researchers for a long time and new optical devices would emerge in a number of high technology areas such as high density displays, lasers, biomarkers, and sensors.

Keeping in mind the current research trends in optical nanomaterials, we are organizing a special issue on “Engineered nanomaterials: Synthesis, characterization, and application to display devices” for Journal of Nanomaterials. This special issue would be devoted to the synthesis and applications of nanomaterials for display devices particularly for LEDs, PDPs, and FEPs. Contributions, such as original research articles, and comprehensive or brief review articles, are especially solicited but not limited to the following fields:

  • Synthesis & application of luminescent semiconductor and metal nanoparticles
  • Thin films, quantum dots for display technology
  • Nanomaterials for FEDs, LEDs and PDPs
  • Rare-earth based nanomaterials for optical functionality
  • Nano-glass ceramics for lasers
  • Upconversion nanoparticles for bio-imaging
  • Graphene and organic layered materials for display devices
  • Nano opto-electronic devices
  • Organic-inorganic hybrid materials & devices
