Nanostructured Thin-film Materials and Surfaces Engineering and Applications

This issue is now closed for submissions.


Nanostructured thin-film materials are currently the pioneer research topic worldwide due to their enormous potential applications for modern devices ranging from sensing and imaging to agriculture, medicine, and security applications. Therefore, research efforts on new thin-film nanostructured materials and surfaces have significantly increased and this field is considered as an important and developing area of research interest worldwide.

The stability and functionality of materials, together with their availability and cost, brings the necessity of further research work in this field related to the design and development of new cost-effective materials and devices for the demand of modern technological progress. In addition, synthesis and characterization of new and existing materials and their possible applications are also important for the future.

Therefore, this Special Issue welcomes original research and review articles both in theoretical and experimental aspects in the field of nanostructured thin-film materials and surfaces engineering, including the development of advanced materials, methods, devices, and their applications.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Nanostructured thin-film materials synthesis and characterization
  • Material surface engineering for advanced devices
  • Growth mechanism and effects of process parameters on thin-film materials properties
  • Thin-film nanomaterials and optical coatings
  • Thin-film materials and surface modification for solar cells
  • Design and development of highly stable thin-film material systems
  • Physical vapor deposited thin-film nanocomposites and applications
  • Colour-controlled properties of optical coatings
  • Thin-film materials engineering for transparent PV, perovskite solar, or PV cells
