Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, the broad field of composites has attracted the interest of other rapidly progressing scientific fields, such as that of perovskites, which can be represented by the well-known oxide perovskites or the novel set of hybrid organic–inorganic metal halide three- and lower-dimensional semiconductors. The latter have unique excitonic properties due to intense quantum mechanical and dielectric confinement effects; however, these perovskites lack stability because they are “soft” materials. Their application in optoelectronic devices can lead to efficient and simple photovoltaic panels and light-emitting diodes, at extremely low cost. Moreover, they can be used as tunable light and radiation detectors and, in general, offer a unique coupling of stable excitons to light, not to mention their usage as electrochemical detectors and photochargeable batteries. Therefore, numerous laboratories have investigated the prospect of stabilizing these metal halide semiconductors as composites with a variety of host materials such as polymers, mesoporous materials, clays or other more complex materials. The composites or nanocomposites can be synthesized in a variety of “bottom-up” or “top-down” schemes and offer a complex set of electronic/optical or optoelectronic properties. The synthesis of these composites, their characterization and device properties will be discussed here for all types of novel perovskites with intriguing material and/or device properties.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Journal of Composites Science 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 1600 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.
