Special Issue in Applied Sciences: Ultraviolet Light Research and Fabrication
The Nobel Prize in Physics 2014 was awarded “for the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes which has enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources". Due to the fact that one fourth of electricity use in the world is for lighting, LED lights can contribute in vastly reducing energy usage in the world. Moreover, LED lights can be used for up to 100,000 hours, compared to 1000 hours for incandescent lights, and 10,000 hours of fluorescent lights, and, thus, can also greatly reduce resource costs. Progress in solid state lightings required innovations in devices and concepts in order to achieve energy-saving and environmental-protecting capabilities. In this Special Issue, the Guest Editors attempt to bring some of the recent technological advances in UV LEDs, micro-LED, QD-LED, blue laser, new materials, smart lighting, and color lighting with the goal of achieving energy-saving.

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 1800 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.
