The Nanotechnology for Energy Applications section publishes high-quality fundamental and applied research related to the rational design, fabrication, characterization and application of nanomaterials and nanodevices used in all forms of sustainable energy production, conversion, storage and utilization. Topics of interest, include but are not limited to:
• Organic, inorganic and hybrid photovoltaics
• Batteries and supercapacitors
• Fuel Cells
• Hydrogen production and storage
• Carbon capture, storage and utilization
• Photo- and electrocatalysts for energy conversion and storage
• Optoelectronic devices for efficient energy usage
• Thermochemical, thermoelectric and piezoelectric materials and devices
• Flexible, self-powered and/or integrated energy devices/systems
All studies must present an advance in the molecular systems design or engineering of nanomaterials or fabrication of nanodevices with a clear energy application in mind. Studies solely focusing on the application of well-known nanomaterials/nanodevices or policy work are better-suited to our sister Journal, Frontiers in Energy Research.
The focus of this section is on sustainable energy solutions and as such, strong emphasis is given to renewable energy. However, cutting-edge advances in non-renewable energy production (e.g. petroleum refining, biomass conversion) may also be considered provided there is a clear sustainability focus or advance towards a clean fuel technology. Nanoscale materials and devices used to monitor and/or control the environmental impacts of energy production do not fall within the scope of this section.
Indexed in: coming soon
PMCID: coming soon for all published articles
Nanotechnology for Energy Applications welcomes submissions of the following article types: Correction, Editorial, General Commentary, Methods, Mini Review, Original Research, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Nanotechnology for Energy Applications, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Nanotechnology for Energy Applications will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Nanotechnology.
