Open Call for Papers – Advanced Nanomaterials for Optoelectronic and Sensor Applications

RSC Advances is delighted to announce Advanced Nanomaterials for Optoelectronic and Sensor Applications, a new themed collection.

This collection is Guest Edited by Prof. Sotirios Baskoutas (University of Patras), Prof. Sheikh A. Akbar (The Ohio State University), Prof. Ahmad Umar (Najran University), Dr. Priyanka Chaudhary (Ming Chi University of Technology) and Dr. Nazish Parveen (King Faisal University).

In this themed collection, we aim to provide the recent advancements and key developments in nanotechnology, particularly focusing on its application in the realms of optoelectronics and sensor technology.

We aim to provide a comprehensive examination of the latest advancements in the design, synthesis, characterization, and computational analysis of nanostructured materials. These materials hold immense potential for revolutionizing various technological domains and have broad applicability across a wide range of industries.

We invite submissions that contribute to the advancement of knowledge in this field, with particular emphasis on the following topics:

  • Optical gain: Exploring the mechanisms and applications of optical gain in nanostructured materials, with a focus on enhancing light emission and amplification.
  • Energy Transfer: Investigating energy transfer phenomena in nanostructures and their implications for energy harvesting, storage, sensor and conversion technologies.
  • Entanglement: Exploring quantum entanglement phenomena in nanomaterials and their potential applications in quantum information processing and communication.
  • Gas sensors: Development of nanostructured materials for highly sensitive and selective gas sensing applications, with a focus on detecting pollutants, toxins, and hazardous gases.
  • Electrochemical sensors/Optical sensors/Biosensors: Design and fabrication of nanostructured sensors for detecting various analytes, including biomolecules, ions, and chemical species, using electrochemical, optical, and biosensing principles.

We welcome contributions from researchers across the globe. Authors are invited to submit original research articles, reviews, and perspectives that address the aforementioned topics or related areas. Submissions will undergo rigorous peer review to ensure the highest scientific quality and relevance to the themed collection. We look forward to receiving your contributions and fostering a vibrant exchange of ideas within the scientific community.

 

Submission deadline: 31st December 2024

Submit your article to this collection

 

Both Papers and Review articles will be considered for this themed collection. All submissions will be subject to an initial assessment by Associate Editors and, if suitable for the journal, they will be subject to rigorous peer review to meet the usual high standards of RSC Advances.

We are proud to be an affordable gold open access journal. Submissions to RSC Advances will be published open access and the appropriate article processing charge (APC) will apply. RSC Advances’ article processing charge (APC) is among the lowest in chemistry and waivers are also available for authors who meet the eligibility criteria outlined here.

If you would like to submit to this themed collection the manuscript should be prepared according to our article guidelines and submitted via our online system any time before the submission deadline of 31 12 2024. During submission, authors will be asked if they are submitting for a themed collection and should include the name of the themed collection. If you would like to submit but require additional time to prepare your article, please do let us know by contacting the journal.

CBBG Meeting 2024 – RSC Poster Prize Winner

The RSC Chemical Biology and Bioorganic Group (CBBG) Postgraduate Symposium meeting took place at the University of East Anglia on the 19th April 2024. The meeting brought together early career researchers working across a range of chemical biology backgrounds and showcasing their cutting-edge chemical biology research. In addition to a plenary speaker the symposium included both short talks and poster presentations by postgraduate students.

We are delighted that the symposium was a success and we would like to wish a huge congratulations to the poster prize winner, Thomas E. Mills. Tom’s poster was titled “Novel Quantitative Methodology for Studying Inhibition of Protein-Protein Interactions”, and Tom’s research is funded by the Institute of Chemical Biology EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (ICB CDT).
