Electronic Materials

A section of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).

Section Information

Nowadays, electronic materials are widely used in our daily life. As an example, communication devices, power supplies, energy conversion systems, computers and wireless systems, physical and chemical sensors, solid-state lighting devices, light- and particle-detectors, etc. are all based on the use of a variety of electronic materials, having specific properties and functionalities that are ultimately related to their atomic structure.

Clearly, the comprehension of the fundamental properties of these materials, the development of their processing technology, and their integration in real devices, as well as the correlation of device performance with material properties, require multidisciplinary competences.

The "Electronic Materials" section is a forum for rapid publication of the most recent advances in materials and devices for different areas of interest, e.g., nanotechnology, power and high-frequency electronics, optoelectronic devices, and sensors. In these areas, several materials are the building blocks used for device fabrication: nanostructures, binary and complex oxides, insulators, metallizations, conventional semiconductors (Si, Ge, SiGe, GaAs, etc.), wide-bandgap semiconductors (SiC, GaN, Ga2O3, ZnO, AlN, diamond, etc.), nitride heterostructures, nanowires, 2D materials and compounds (graphene, hexagonal boron nitride, transition metal dichalcogenides, etc.), optical and energy harvesting materials, etc.

Papers based on experimental and theoretical studies on the above electronic materials and related devices are welcome in this section. In addition, the development and/or application of advanced characterization techniques to electronic materials and electronic devices are also in line with the scope of the section.

All the papers submitted for publication in this section will undergo a peer-review process, and the final decisions are made based on the recommendations of independent reviewers.
