Low-Dimensional Nanomaterials and Their Functional Architectures: Synthesis, Properties, and Applications

Description

In the last few decades, low-dimensional nanomaterials, such as carbon nanotubes, graphene, and transition metal dichalcogenide (TMDC) monolayers, have attracted world-wide attention in varieties of disciplines. Strongly confined electrons, photons, and phonons in low-dimensional materials lead to exotic electronic, optical, and thermal properties especially at room temperature and make them a promising material platform to develop next-generation cutting-edge technologies. Furthermore, beyond isolated nanomaterials, their heterostructures and hybridization with traditional materials can be made simply and precisely. And this reassembly enables almost arbitrary quantum engineering, opening an explosive research attempts in both fundamental research and applications.

This special issue focuses on rapid progresses in low-dimensional nanomaterials and their heterostructures from new strategy of material synthesis, fundamental research on physical, chemical, and mechanical properties and to varieties of applications including electronics, optoelectronics, and photonics. We invite researchers to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that are related to fundamentals and applications of low-dimensional nanomaterials.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Large-scale synthesis of low-dimensional materials including carbon nanotubes, graphene, boron nitride, and TMDCs
  • Novel 3D functional architectures consisting of low-dimensional nanomaterials
  • Fundamental investigations on low-dimensional nanomaterials and their functional structures properties
  • Modeling and simulation of nanomaterials and predicting new nanomaterials and functional structures
  • Realization and application of nanodevices electronics, optoelectronics, photonics, energy harvesting, biological sensing, composite, and so forth
