About This Topic

A special issue will be devoted to all articles devoted to fundamental problems associated with Nanooptoelectronics, Nanophotonics, and Spectroscopy of nanostructures containing quantum quasicrystals, quantum dots, quantum wells, and quantum wires.

Currently, such nanomaterials are being intensively studied. Significant interest in the study of the optical and magneto - electronic properties of such nanomaterials is caused by the fact that such a nanostructure form the fundamental basis of a new generation of nanoelectronics (nanolasers, quantum computers).

The following items are within the scope of this topic:

  • Quantum optics and nanophonics of nanosystems consisting of semiconductor and dielectric nanosystems (quantum dots, quantum wells, quantum wires and quantum quasicrystals)
  • Nanooptoelectronics of nanostructures, including semiconductor and dielectric nanomaterials
  • Magneto-electrooptics nanosystems and heterosystems
  • Laser spectroscopy of nanostructures
  • Nonlinear & ultrafast optics of nanostructures
  • Photonics & fiber optics of nanostructures


Quantum optics and nanophonics of nanosystems; nanooptoelectronics of nanostructures; magneto-electrooptics nanosystems and heterosystems; quantum dots; quantum wells; quantum wires and quantum quasicrystals
