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.
Conference participants whose contributions focused on nanoparticle synthesis and characterization, productivity of nanoparticle synthesis, manufacturing of nanoparticle-based nanocomposites,
and related topics will be invited to contribute to a Thematic Issue on "Laser-material interactions in liquids applied to nanoparticles and nanocomposites" in the
Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology.
Original papers (full research articles, perspectives or reviews) submitted to this issue should describe new developments in nanoparticle synthesis techniques, integration of nanoparticles in
advanced nanocomposite materials, and applications of laser-generated nanoparticles and nanocomposites in biomedicine, catalysis, energy conversion, additive manufacturing, and optics.
Note that the Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology is a Diamond Open Access journal, i.e., there are no fees for authors or readers.
