Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to notify you that I have the pleasure of serving as the Guest editor of a Special Issue of Materials aimed at giving a comprehensive overview of the state of the art of the research addressing the fascinating electronic properties harbored by two-dimensional materials, and their close relatives, layered materials.

Worldwide efforts in the last two decades have permitted us to design and create countless novel 2D materials, multi-layer stackings and layered materials through different approaches. The energy dispersion of electronic states in the reciprocal space, together with non-trivial topology, electronic correlations, or the interaction with the lattice, give birth to a variety of exotic electronic properties, which can be finely tuned through the composition and the atomic arrangement of the atoms in the materials, by the twist angle in few-layer stackings, or through the application of electric and magnetic fields.

 This Special Issue aims to gather reviews and original research papers reflecting the rich diversity of the current research experimentally and theoretically addressing the electronic properties of 2D materials and layered materials. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following: 2D topological insulators and semimetals, flatband materials, magnetism, density waves and superconductivity in 2D and layered materials, transition metal mono- and dichalcogenides, non-layered 2D materials, borophene and borophene derivatives, van der Waals heterostructures and 2D and layered alloys. Contributions addressing the fabrication and characterization of devices taking advantage of electronic properties of 2D and layered materials or their influence on their optical or chemical properties will be also welcome.

I look forward to receiving your contributions.

Dr. Antoine Fleurence
Guest Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Materials 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 2600 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.
