Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are inviting submissions to a Special Issue of Energies Journal on the subject area of “Printable Solar Cells: Recent Advances and Future Prospects.” Printable solar cells (PSCs), such as organic solar cells, perovskite solar cells, and quantum dot solar cells, have recently shown unprecedented breakthroughs in both scientific and technological advancements. Because of their excellent functionalities, including their light weight, flexibility, and printability, they are expected to facilitate unique photovoltaic applications that can be hard to attain with conventional inorganic solar cells. Therefore, to achieve the practical implementation of these PSCs, intense research efforts into materials, device/module optimization, fabrication, printing technology, device/material stability and transparent electrodes for PSCs are required.

The topics of interest in this Special Issue include various component materials and optimization/fabrication methods for PSCs, such as organic solar cells, perovskite solar cells and quantum dot solar cells. The PSCs of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Organic solar cells
  • Perovskite solar cells
  • Quantum dot solar cells
  • Photoactive materials
  • Interfacial materials
  • Charge transporting materials
  • Interface engineering
  • Printing technology
  • Flexible and transparent electrodes
  • Device/module optimization
  • Device structures
  • Device stability
  • Material stability
  • Module design

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. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
