Advanced Nanostructured Semiconductor Materials: Morphology Controlled Synthesis and Application

Description

Due to the miniaturization of the electronic devices, the requirement for semiconductor components has been pushed to nanometer scale while the physical and chemical properties change drastically due explicitly to size scaling effects. In addition, morphology plays a vital role in the design of novel semiconductor nanomaterials with controlled functional properties. A clear understanding of this field requires the knowledge not only on synthesis methods to well control the morphology but also on the morphology-property-application relationship. To date, various techniques such as chemical synthesis, self-assembly, and nanomanufacturing of bulk or layered wafers have been applied to morphology controlled synthesis novel semiconductor nanomaterials. The increasing interest in morphology-control synthesized semiconductor nanomaterials and promising properties have also led to the expanded application of semiconductor nanomaterials in nanoelectronics, field-effect transistor, light-emitting diodes, lasers, solar cells, chemical and biosensors, nanopackaging, and even catalysts.

This journal is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that aims to bring science and applications together on nanoscale and nanostructured materials with emphasis on synthesis, processing, characterization, and applications of materials containing true nanosize dimensions or nanostructures that enable novel/enhanced properties or functions. The 2014 impact factor of this journal is 1.644. The purpose of this special issue is to publish original high-quality research papers as well as review articles addressed to explore the development in the most recent advances of semiconductor nanomaterials. Particularly, the theme of this issue is in the morphology controlled synthesis and application of semiconductor nanomaterials.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Morphology controlled semiconductor nanomaterials synthesis method and its optical, mechanical, electrical, or thermal properties
  • Advanced characterization techniques and methods for semiconductor nanomaterials
  • The application of novel semiconductor nanomaterials: 0D (e.g., quantum dots), 1D (e.g., carbon nanotube and ZnO nanowire), and 2D (e.g., graphene) semiconductor nanomaterials for various applications, including semiconductors, photocatalysis, field-effect transistors (FETs), light-emitting diodes (LED), lasers, solar cells, chemical and biosensors, nanopackaging , and catalysis
