Special Issue "Recent Advances in Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs)"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2019).
Interests: photonics; optoelectronics; light-emitting diode; laser diode
This Special Issue on “Recent Advances in Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs)” is intended to open discussions on solid-state light emitters, such as inorganic LEDs and organic LEDs (OLEDs), and highlight recent progress and trends in this field. The availability of such devices emitting in the wide spectral range, including ultraviolet, visible, infrared, and white, enables a variety of applications in signages, displays, automobiles, general lighting, telecommunications, sterilization, biology, and urban farming. Novel materials and device architectures combined with advanced manufacturing processes have promised reliable solid-state light emitters with refined color reproduction, high efficiency, and high luminous flux. Further progress requires innovations in both materials and devices. In this Special Issue, regular articles related to material and device features as well as to fabrication and applications of LEDs and OLEDs are invited to convey the current state of the art of efficiency, spectral quality, reliability, new applications, and other relevant technical aspects of LEDs and OLEDs. Communications, comments, perspectives, and reviews are welcome.

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. Crystals 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 1800 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.
