This special issue on Compound Semiconductor Materials will focus on thin film heterostructures of III-Vs, III-nitrides, II-oxides and perovskite-based materials across the misfit scale. Strain relaxation in large misfit systems involves both dislocation nucleation and propagation, which are more difficult in the nitride and oxide materials systems. Special emphasis will be placed on management of stresses and strains, defects and interfaces, and interactions of defects and chemistry at the nanoscale to create device-worthy materials. The volume will address the details of synthesis and processing, nanoscale characterization, novel electronic, photonic and magnetic properties, structure-property correlations, modeling and solid-state devices. It will include both layered and self-assembled nanostructures in the form of nanodots, rods and tubes. It is anticipated that the growth of novel thin film heterostructures with minimal defects will enable the next generation device structures, integration of multiple functionalities on a wafer for nanophotonics and nanoelectronics, and smart structures and sensors.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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.
