Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Understanding the intricacies of nanoscience and nanotechnology relies heavily on scrutinizing atomic-scale structures, chemical compositions, and electronic states. Over the past decades, electron microscopy has undergone a transformative evolution propelled by advancements in aberration correctors, monochromators, ultrafast electron detectors, computational power, and data analysis methods. Consequently, electron microscopy and spectroscopy have emerged as indispensable tools for uncovering the mysteries concealed within nanoscale entities.

In this Special Issue, researchers are invited to share their insights and discoveries facilitated by advanced electron microscopy techniques. Contributions may encompass a range of approaches, including atomic-scale imaging and quantification, electron energy loss spectroscopy, cathodoluminescence spectroscopy, convergent electron beam diffraction, scanning electron nanodiffraction, electron holography, electron tomography, in situ or operando experiments, and machine learning-driven analyses.

Original research articles and reviews are especially welcome for this Special Issue. We eagerly anticipate your valuable contributions.

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.
