About this Research Topic
Nanomaterials (NMs) have gained prominence in technological advancements due to their tunable physical, electrical-optical, and biological properties with enhanced performance over their bulk counterparts. Two-dimensional (2D) materials have historically been one of the most extensively studied materials thanks to the physical phenomena that takes place when charge and heat transport are limited to a plane. The discovery of single-layer graphene has shown that it is not only possible to exfoliate stable, single-atom or single-polyhedral-thick 2D materials from van der Waals solids, but that these materials can exhibit unique and fascinating physical and electro-optic properties.
This Research Topic solicits Original Research and Review papers on all aspects related to nanofabrication involving materials with electro-optical properties, including any subsequent applications and/or devices. The mail goal will be to continue shedding light on the latest advances in nanofabrication techniques and future applications perspectives. The articles should cover topics reflecting significant development or progress in recent years, with comprehensive depth and a balanced perspective. Reviews with a strong focus on electro-optical devices and nanomaterials for the devices are highly encouraged. Original research articles showing the potential for nanomaterials and nanodevices for industrial applications are also encouraged.
