Special Issue "Recent Advances in Optoelectronic Functional Nano-Materials"
Journal Special Issue Information:
This Special Issue aims to bringing together professionals and academics performing advanced research on materials with outstanding optical and optoelectronic properties that have the potential to positively shape the information-processing and energy-demanding world of tomorrow. The main purpose is to collect innovative and original contributions targeting modern challenges in optoelectronics and photonics.
Nanomaterials research is highly multidisciplinary and strongly benefiting from international cooperation, and has successfully entered the stage of industrial application. For instance, quantum dots are being utilized as high-brightness high-color-purity luminescent nanostructures for display technologies, and as tailorable light-absorbing structures for highly sensitive photodetectors, and have even been acting as nonclassical light sources for quantum information systems. Similarly, the revisited class of 2D materials with controllable single-layer features that are now increasingly being explored promise a new age of optoelectronic nanodevices. Ultimately, the synthesis of quantum materials, some even with topologically protected properties, has evolved to the extent that mass producibility and device integration have become common topics.
In fact, certain materials (e.g., perovskites) have shown very interesting properties that render them attractive candidates for optoelectronic devices such as solar cells, light-emitting diodes, detectors and lasers, etc. Future on-chip optoelectronic circuitry for computing or possibly biomedical applications may also benefit greatly from recent advances in this overarching field.
