Interests: Micro contact printing, Gravure-offset printing, Molecular jet printing, Roll to roll (R2R) process, Organic thin film transistor (OTFT), Organic photovoltaics (OPV), Dye sensitized solar cell (DSSC), 3-diemensional printing, Chemical/Bio sensors.
Printed electronics is recognized as a promising research area that enables a substitution for traditional silicon-based electronics due to its ability to fabricate devices, even on flexible substrates, and realize a high-throughput process. The interest in printed electronics is progressively increasing to achieve next-generation electronics, such as flexible displays, wearable computers, and the Internet of Things. For the successful realization of applications, lower temperature, easier fabrication, less time-consumption, and more cost-effective approaches are considered, and various printing techniques with organic materials as inorganic ones have been developed and analyzed for practical electronic devices. In order to ensure a successful approach to the potentially large market, which will be created by printed electronics, more effective research activities are required, with comprehensive studies on materials, printing processes, and demonstration of electronic devices.
In this Special Issue on Printed Electronics, potential topics could include, but are not limited to, original research work on recent developments in materials, processing, and applications. Examples include printed thin film transistors, photovoltaics, displays, sensors, batteries, and wearable devices.

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. Electronics 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.
