Core-Shell Nanostructures: Modeling, Fabrication, Properties, and Applications

Description

Core-shell nanostructures have been demonstrated as promising building blocks for nanoscale devices, due to their well-defined structural configuration and the resultant excellent physical and chemical properties relative to their single-component counterparts. Core-shell-based nanostructures have shown enormous significance for fundamental science and technological applications, including cell imaging, surface-enhanced Raman scattering, chemical sensing, catalysis, field effect transistors, light emission diode, lithium battery, and solar cells.

The objective of this special issue is to stimulate continuing research effort in this field by providing the readers with the latest advancements in theoretical simulation of interconnection between structure and fundamental properties (electrical, thermal, mechanical, catalytic, etc), novel synthetic strategies (solution, VLS, CVD, etc), and design of core-shell nanostructure with advantageous properties for various applications. We invite submission of original research articles as well as review articles. Areas of interest for this special issue include, but are not limited to the following topics:

  • Novel modeling and simulation methods for core-shell nanostructures
  • Size and shell-thickness-dependent electronic, optical, thermal, and mechanical properties
  • Novel synthesis and characterization techniques
  • Core-shell colloids for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), bioimaging probes, cancer therapy, chemical sensing, and so forth
  • Shell-isolated core-shell nanoparticles for improved surface-enhanced Raman scattering
  • Hybrid core-shell nanostructures and core-shell quantum dots
  • One-dimensional core-shell nanocables in optoelectronic nanodevices
  • Advance of core-shell nanostructures in energy-related area
