With relatively large surface areas and tunable composition and morphology, luminescent nanomaterials possess unexpected optical properties compared with their bulk counterparts. Their unique and advantageous optical properties have advanced a broad range of applications, including fluorescent microscopy, super-resolution nanoscopy imaging, single-particle tracking, nanoscale thermometry, multimodal bioimaging, photodynamic therapy, optogenetics, security labelling, photovoltaic converters, data storage, and 3D displays. Rational design, controlled synthesis, nano-surface engineering, and fine-tuning of their composition, morphology, and surface properties are the fundamental cornerstones in nanoscience and nanotechnology towards the optimized overall performance of a variety of nanoprobes discovered today. The emerging use of newly developed wet-chemical and hybrid approaches provides opportunities to unlock new optical properties as well as emerging applications enabled by these nanomaterials.
This Special Issue will present comprehensive research outlining progress on the functional design, controlled synthesis, and novel applications of luminescence nanomaterials. We invite authors to contribute original research articles and review articles covering the current progress on the recent advances and applications of luminescent nanomaterials. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Synthesis, advantages and applications of the colloidal quantum dots.
- Novel design and applications of upconversion nanoparticles.
- Synthesis and potential of carbon dots.
- Advances and applications of luminescent polymer dots.
- Functional design and applications of luminescent hybrid nanomaterials.

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.
