About this Research Topic
We are delighted to present this inaugural “Advances and Reviews” Research Topic. The Nanotechnology for Energy Applications section of Frontiers in Nanotechnology solicits Original Research Articles, Perspectives, Reviews and Mini-Reviews on all aspects related to nanotechnology for energy applications. The articles should cover topics that have seen significant development or progress in recent years, with comprehensive depth and a balanced perspective. We invite authors to present a complete overview of the “state-of-the-art” within the rational design, fabrication, characterization and application of nanomaterials and nanodevices used in all forms of sustainable energy production, conversion, storage and utilization.
With this collection, we also wish to spark a multidisciplinary discussion on:
• Different schools of thought or controversies
• Fundamental concepts, current applications, issues, and problems
• Current research gaps
• Potential developments in the field.
Authors may also contribute with Mini-Reviews that offer a succinct and clear summary of the topic, allowing readers to get up-to-date on new developments and/or emerging concepts.
Keywords: nanotechnology, energy, energy applications, review, nanomaterials, nanodevices, sustainable energy production, energy conversion, energy storage and utilization
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
