Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues:

This Special Issue focuses on semiconducting polymers for organic transistors that have potential applications in a variety of integrated circuits, such as digital logic circuits and analog circuits. These can be fabricated on flexible substrates at low temperatures by printing or solution-coating patterning methods, enabling thin, flexible, and large areas electronics as well as low cost electronics. In particular, fully-printed organic transistors on thin plastic film substrates are an attractive manufacturing option. Control of molecular orientation in the printed films is also major issue because it significantly influences organic transistor electrical characteristics. Contributions are widely invited on newly developed materials, semiconductor layer morphology, printing processes, charge injection and charge transport mechanisms, integrated circuits, backplanes for flexible LCD and OLED displays, RFID tags, sensors, and new potential applications.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
