In recent decades, extensive research on low-dimensional materials has led to a breakthrough in both their fundamental material science and their practical applications. Thin films, monolayers and multiple heterostructures based on low-dimensional materials are often found to possess unique physical properties compared to their bulk counterparts. In particular, their electronic, magnetic, transport and optical properties are highly relevant to nanoelectronics, spintronics, photovoltaics and related areas, and novel applications in areas such as fast memory processing, energy storage, flexible nanodevices and quantum computers have been suggested.
At the same time, the real application of nanomaterials requires an understanding of aspects such as their physical and chemical stability, their interfacial effects and effective property tuning methods. Thus, there is a need for further advanced experimental works and detailed theoretical studies that propose, synthesize and employ nanomaterials in controlled manner.
The main goal of this Special Issue is to highlight current progress in the study of low-dimensional materials and heterostructures, with a focus on their contribution to nanoelectronics, spintronics and related fields.

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.
