Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Big data analysis requires computations to have high energy efficiency and can benefit from the adoption of new computing paradigms. Recent research has found superconducting electronics to be a promising technological platform in this respect, with potential applications in many fields such as quantum chemistry and materials science, artificial intelligence, cryptography, media processing, and optimization tasks. Macroscopic quantum effects associated with the superconducting state of a material also form the basis of various highly sensitive sensors and systems for signal receiving and processing. This Special Issue aims to cover the latest discoveries in the innovating modern electronics of superconducting systems. We welcome full articles, communications, and reviews devoted to the theory and simulation of superconducting nanomaterials and nanostructures, theoretical and experimental studies on their basic properties, synthesis and fabrication routes, device methods, and other topics that bridge the gap between fundamental physics of superconductivity and device engineering. The research directions highlighted in this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Superconducting/ferromagnetic nanoscaled spin valves;
  2. Hybrid superconducting nanostructures with electrically tunable critical currents;
  3. The controllable kinetic inductance of superconducting nanostructures;
  4. Superconducting nanostructures for sensors and receiving systems;
  5. Superconducting switching devices for digital electronics;
  6. Nanomaterials and nanoscaled systems of superconducting quantum electronics;
  7. Neuromorphic applications of superconducting nanostructures;
  8. The theory and simulation of superconducting phenomena on nanoscales for emerging applications.

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.
