Special Issue "High-k Materials and Devices 2014"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 January 2014)
Advanced gate stacks with high dielectric constant materials (high-k) for complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) and memory applications in sub-22 nm feature size integrated circuits have been a subject of intense research in recent years. The main focus of the forthcoming special issue is to present a comprehensive overview to our readers by assembling state-of-the-art research articles and reviews on processing and characterization of high-k gate material. The topics covered by this special issue include high-k materials and deposition methods; Deposition on high-mobility substrate such as Ge, GaAs, and other III-V compounds; Interface passivation of substrate/high-k interface; Reliability of high-k material; Characterization techniques and Application to non-volatile memory systems.

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. Materials 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 1600 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.
