Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2023) | Viewed by 1231
Interests: multiferroic materials; perovskites and delafossites; Heusler alloys; magnetic and electric properties of ceramics and nanomaterials; Mössbauer spectroscopy
In recent decades, nanotechnology has developed multiple applications of ceramics and nanomaterials in many areas of life, namely in electronics, energy and chemical industry, environmental protection, and medicine. Synthesis methods of ceramics and nanomaterials are constantly improved and modified in order to obtain a material with the desired properties. Characterization methods are equally important because they confirm the assumed structure and the physical and chemical properties of these materials. Among them, spectral methods deserve special attention because they are very accurate and provide valuable information about the energy structure, the type of chemical bonds, the size of nanoparticles, etc.
The present Special Issue in Nanomaterials is devoted to ceramics and nanomaterials obtained by various synthesis methods, e.g., solid-state sintering, sol-gel, co-precipitation, hydrothermal synthesis, mechano-synthesis, and others. Special emphasis will be focused on the magnetic, electrical, and optical properties of nanomaterials in the context of their applications in electronics, medicine, and environmental protection. Spectral methods, like Mössbauer spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, UV-Vis spectroscopy, Energy Dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS), impedance spectroscopy, mass spectrometry and others should be used for accurate characterization of the material, i.e., to determine its crystal structure, chemical composition, size of nanocrystallites or nanoparticles, hyperfine interactions, intermolecular interactions, energetic structure, etc. The authors are invited to contribute their original research articles, comparative study papers or review articles devoted to the above topic, especially with new ideas in the field of ceramics and nanomaterials synthesis.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2900 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
