In recent years, many scientists have focused on materials whose size requires a different view of physics. It has been shown that going down to nanometers, the materials gain new, very interesting properties, which are often completely different from those found for these materials on a larger scale. These nanomaterials are now studied and used in physics (spectroscopy, magnetism, sensors, electronics), chemistry (catalysis, electrochemistry) and biology (biosensors, bioimaging, optical and magnetic markers, peptides). The newly developed methods of synthesis, material processing, the use of new technologies and tools, as well as the structural design , allowed for the creation of a new class of advanced nanomaterials widely used in electronics.

The aim of this research topic is to present the relationship between the size of nanostructures and their physical properties. Another important aspect of this research topic will be to show the great potential of nanomaterials in electronics, such as light-emitting diodes, sensors, magnetic memory, energy storage, etc. The focus will be the physical and chemical properties of 1D (quantum dots, carbon dots, biomolecules, nanopowders), 2D (thin layers, graphene, hexagonal boron nitride) and 3D (ceramics, glasses and composites containing nanostructures) nanostructures.

Both experimental and theoretical research describing the phenomena occurring in nanostructures (1D, 2D and 3D) as well as the possibilities of using nanomaterials in electronics are welcome. We welcome submissions of Original Research, Review, Mini-review and Perspective related to the broadly understood field of nanomaterials, including but not limited to the following aspects:

• Theoretical models describing and explaining physical phenomena at the nanoscale.
• Nanomaterials synthesis methods.
• New methods of testing nanomaterials.
• Study of the physical and chemical properties of the materials associated with the size.
• The use of nanomaterials in electronics.

Keywords: Nanotechnology, Size effect, Properties, Electronics, Sensors
