Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recent advances in exploring nanomaterial-based innovative and cost-effective solutions for optoelectronic device manufacturing will be devoted to by the present special issue. Contributions as an original research article or comprehensive review on the following specific topics, but not limited to, are particularly welcome.

  1. Innovative optical imaging based on nanomaterials
  2. Nanophosphors of narrow bandwidth emission and high stability, both up-conversion and down-conversion, for Mini-LEDs, Micro-LEDs, broadband and full-spectrum solar cells, and medical imaging & detection
  3. Cost effective nanomaterial enabled solutions for nanophosphor wavelength conversion structures; for hot spot elimination and for power reduction; and for optical performance enhancement in LED, OLED and mini-LED based displays & solid state lighting
  4. Nanomaterial based die attachment potential solutions for power optoelectronic packaging
  5. Nanomaterial enabled highly precision die attachment solutions for micro/mini LEDs, CMOS sensors, cameras, LiDARs
  6. Nano conductive pastes and inks for printable optoelectronic medical wearables and 5G devices

Please kindly note: The deadline is just for submission. When you have your manuscripts ready, you can submit them to the special issue right now, we will immediately proceed peer-review, then published the papers without any delay if the decision of peer-review is acceptance.

Accepted papers are published in the joint Special Issue in Nanomanufacturing or  Nanomaterials (https://0-www-mdpi-com.brum.beds.ac.uk/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/opto_nano).

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 papers will be 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. Nanomanufacturing is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.

A highly sensitive biosensing platform comprised of CdSe-ZnO core–shell nanostructures for targeted applications in protein detection is demonstrated. This innovative technique uses a microwave-assisted thermal decomposition method to produce a rapid, less hazardous, and user-friendly procedure to synthesize a semiconductor core surrounded by nanometer-thick metal oxide shells. The benefit of using a metal oxide shell includes mitigating the toxicity of the CdSe core, thus increasing its biocompatibility and minimizing its photochemical corrosion and oxidation. We present a simple one-pot microwave-assisted protocol for the formation of CdSe-ZnO core–shell quantum dots (QDs). These QDs optimize the recognition limit of bovine serum albumin (BSA) protein through a spectral signal at a considerably low concentration (2.5 × 10−6 M), thus demonstrating its potential to become a highly effective surface-plasmon-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS)-like sensing platform. We report a QD material that can mimic a strong SERS-like behavior due to charge transfer affecting the local electric field. Full article
