he potential of nanomaterials for energy conversion and data storage applications has motivated scientists to investigate these materials under nonequilibrium operating conditions. The traditional characterization techniques and the steady-state theoretical models both fail in describing the out-of-equilibrium behavior of nanomaterials. Instead, time-resolved spectroscopy and ultrafast microscopy techniques are indispensable for the study of ultrafast processes at the nanoscale where they can elucidate the detailed excitation and relaxation pathways by probing the transient electronic and structural evolution with sufficient spatial, temporal, energetic, or momentum resolution. In addition, recent advances in the theoretical description of excited states and transients for systems out-of-equilibrium allow precise interpretations of ultrafast experimental observations.

In this special issue, we invite authors to submit original research and review articles that study ultrafast phenomena in nanomaterials including chemical, structural, and electronic transitions at the femtosecond and picosecond timescales.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    Time-resolved spectroscopies and ultrafast microscopies
    Optoacoustics and magnetoacoustics
    Dynamics of energy and charge transfer processes at the nanoscale
    Electronic and structural coupling in spatially confined systems
    Coherent control of selected degrees of freedom
    Ultrafast processes at surfaces and interfaces
    Phase transition dynamics in phase change nanomaterials
    Ultrafast magnetization reversal in nanomaterials
