Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since the revolutionary experimental discovery of graphene over a decade ago, the research topic related to this material has progressed in a spectacular pace, opening new avenues for designing next-generation devices in the ultimate limit of miniaturization.

The field of graphene-based nanostructures has gained special momentum after the first demonstration of a bottom–up approach consisting of a synthetic polymerization route on metallic surfaces. This fabrication method has allowed the synthesis of atomically precise structures with tunable electronic and magnetic properties down to the single atom. By carefully selecting the precursor monomers, different graphene-based nanostructures were synthesized, characterized, and their electrical properties probed by integration in field-effect transistors.

Articles in this Special Issue on “Graphene-Based Nanostructures: From Molecules to Device Integration” will cover recent advances in the synthesis, characterization, and theoretical modeling of graphene-based materials. The focus will be on growth mechanism, electronic properties, and device integration.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Condensed Matter is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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.
