Special Issue "Crystal Growth for Optoelectronic and Piezoelectric Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2017)
Materials science and materials engineering fusion have led to various modern technological advancements. Most of these rely on bulk single crystals. The list of crystal applications in various fields is exhaustive; a few enlisted crystal applications range from telecommunications, LEDs, infrared imaging, lasers, scintillators, resonators, magneto-optic devices, ferroelectrics, and piezoelectrics. Crystal growth bridges understanding between various physical and chemical properties.
The Special Issue on “Crystal Growth for Optoelectronic and Piezoelectric Applications” is intended to provide a unique international forum aimed at covering a broad description of results involving various crystal growth techniques and characterizations for optoelectronic and piezoelectric materials. Scientists working in a wide range of disciplines are invited to contribute to this cause.
The topics summarized under the keywords cover broad examples of the greater number of sub-topics in mind. The volume is especially open for any innovative contributions involving dislocation/crystal design aspects of the topics and/or sub-topics.

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 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.
