Microelectronics and Optoelectronics

A section of Electronics (ISSN 2079-9292).

Section Information

The Section “Microelectronics and Optoelectronics” of Electronics is focused on the fabrication of electronic, photonic, bioelectronic, electromechanics, and fluidic devices and systems, and their applications in the broad areas of electronics, photonics, energy, and the environment. This section will also cover the expanding interdisciplinary field of integrated nanoelectronics/photonics and micro-/nano-/biosystems. Through its unique mixture of peer-reviewed articles, reviews, short technical notes, and the latest research news on key developments, “Microelectronics and Optoelectronics” provides comprehensive coverage of this dynamic new field for both researchers in academia and professionals in industry.
