Post conference, contributions focused on physical chemistry aspects of the laser-material/nanoparticle interactions will be invited to contribute a Virtual Special Issue
on "Laser-enabled Synthesis and Processing of Nanoparticles in Liquids" in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C.
Papers submitted to this issue should describe theoretical and experimental advances in laser processing. Topics of interest include defect engineering through highly nonequilibrium synthesis
conditions, the effect of the defects, size and ligands on electron-phonon relaxation, optical properties and the chemical activity of nanoparticles, time-resolved probing of laser-induced phase
transformations (both in laser ablation and in laser-nanoparticle interactions), and nanoscale phase separation in multicomponent nanoparticles.
Contributions focused on nanoparticle synthesis and characterization, productivity of the nanoparticle synthesis, manufacturing of nanoparticle-based nanocomposites, and related topics
will be invited to contribute to another journal, to be identified and announced soon.
