About This Topic

This Special Issue is open for submissions of Research and applications related with the design of Hybrid Graphene materials, and Carbon allotropes derivatives. In this manner, it is invited to contributions related with synthesis and strategies associated in the design of Graphene based new materials. In this regard, the characterization of materials is of high interest in order to highlight compositions and innovation to test and evaluate new properties. In this context, a broad spectrum of topics could be afforded such as i) Photonics, ii) Nanophotonics, iii) Nanoelectronics, iv) Quantum properties, v) Nano-spectroscopy, and vi) Optics and Nano-Optics; as well as other ones related and proposed by authors. In this way looking for the generation of new materials and metamaterials accompanied with varied properties could be leaded to insights in further studies within many Research fields. By this manner, new proposal for targeted applications in current challenges in Chemistry, Physics, Biology, and Medicine are welcomed. And, in this context it should be highlighted the importance of the development of technology and Nanotechnology based on new materials due to the high impact on applications. By this manner, new advances in varied Research fields and applications are intended to show and discuss.
