Topical Collection "Printed and Flexible Electronics"
A topical collection in Electronics (ISSN 2079-9292).
Interests: printed electronics; organic thin film transistors; organic photovoltaics; sensors; photodetectors; organic semiconductors; batteries
Printed and flexible electronics have drawn much attention in recent years. This interest has been driven by two main factors. On one hand, there is an increased availability of solution-processable organic materials or nanomaterials, which enables the fabrication of electronics using printing techniques at significantly lower costs in comparison to the traditional silicon technology; on the other hand, there have been increasing demands for flexible and lightweight devices due to the increasing use of portable electronics and the growing prevalence of the Internet of Things (IoT) technology. Printing techniques and some other deposition methods such as thermal evaporation, sputtering, and chemical vapor deposition (CVD), can be utilized alone or in combination to fabricate flexible electronics.
The aim of this topical collection is to present the latest developments in printed and flexible electronics. It will cover various electronic devices including, but not limited to, field-effect transistors or thin-film transistors, logic circuits, photovoltaics or solar cells, memory devices, bio- and chemical sensors, smart labels, and photodetectors, both printed (solution-processed) and flexible.

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 collection 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 1500 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.
