Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Colloidal quantum dots (QDs), semiconductor nanocrystals with dimensions on the nanometer scale, exhibit extraordinary quantum mechanics properties. They show controllable optical and electronic characteristics, finely tuned through the manipulation of their composition and crystal structure. Their unique features enable the engineering of materials with adjustable light absorption, bright emission of pure colors, and versatile tuning of chemical and physical functions.

Since their discovery, QDs have garnered significant attention in academia and industry, catalyzing advancements across various technologies, including solar energy conversion, light-emitting devices, bioimaging, photocatalysis, and quantum computing. In recognition of their impact, the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2023 was awarded for the discovery and development of QDs.

We invite researchers to contribute to this Special Issue, focusing on research papers (including articles and reviews) related to the synthesis and advanced physical and chemical properties of semiconductor nanocrystals (both traditional and perovskite quantum dots) and their applications.

We look forward to receiving your valuable contributions.

Dr. Francesca Stefania Freyria

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
