Special Issue Information
The rapid growth of the popularity of the Internet of Things and flexible, wearable, and stretchable electronics in the past decade has resulted in strong progress in flexible electronics. It is expected that flexible electronics in the near future will take a significant place in our daily life, in the fileds of health care, computation and memory, gadgets, touch screens and displays, energy storage and generation, electronic textile, human activities, and more. Two-dimensional layered crystals are believed to be the most promising candidates for flexible electronics applications, owing to their well-known features including the ultimate thickness scalability down to atomic thin, high flexibility and intrinsic strain limit. But the investigation of mechanical properties of 2D materials, its derivatives and composites remain incomplete or for some materials they are simply unknown. Another important item is the design of structures or devices (the combination of the layers, their configuration, and so on) focused on the wide spectrum of applications. In the present Issue, we hope to discuss the new results of the mechanical properties of 2D materials. The planned Issue welcomes the studies of new 2D materials, structures, and devices.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.
Prof. Dr. Irina V. Antonova
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. 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 2300 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.
