EPJ ST Special Issue: Advances in Low-Dimensional and Nanostructured Materials for Sustainable Energy Conversion and Storage
- Published on 05 May 2021
The prolific growth in global energy demand together with increasing concerns over environmental pollution requires urgent solutions to efficiently harvest and store renewable energy resources. Toward realizing this, a significant amount of research has been devoted in recent years to the discovery of innovative functional materials with high performance for applications in energy conversion and storage. In particular, a wide range of novel low-dimensional and nanostructured materials have been reported achieving greatly improved performances. This special issue is dedicated to the latest advancements in low-dimensional and nanostructured materials for energy applications with an emphasis on reporting new knowledge at the interface of physics and chemistry.
This thematic issue is a collection of original contributions and review articles focusing on the relationship between structure and performance of low-dimensional and nanostructured materials for applications in photovoltaics, photocatalysis, electrocatalysis, batteries, light emitting diodes, fuel cells, hydrogen storage etc. Contributions are sought from a number of relevant disciplines including condensed matter physics, applied physics, optoelectronics, materials science, nanotechnology and chemistry covering both the experimental and theoretical research.
Authors should submit their original articles or short reviews to the Editorial Office of EPJ ST via the submission system. Submissions should be clearly identified as intended for the Special Issue "Advances in Low-Dimensional and Nanostructured Materials for Sustainable Energy Conversion and Storage". All submitted papers will be refereed according to the usual high standards of the journal. More general information about EPJST is available at http://epjst.epj.org/.
