Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanoscale microscopy techniques such as transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), scanning probe microscopy (SPM), and synchrotron-based beam microscopy represent increasingly powerful methods with which to understand the structure and chemistry of materials at the nanoscale. Based on the concept that the development of advanced energy materials can contribute to building a sustainable society, various kinds of materials for countermeasures against worldwide issues such as carbon emissions, environmental pollution, and limited resources have been developed by materials researchers and industries. Thus, research employing the above nanoscale microscopy techniques, especially for advanced energy materials, has become increasingly popular.

This Special Issue covers nanoscale microscopy techniques for energy materials and other relevant topics. Original research articles, review articles, and short communications concerning these are welcome.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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.
