Special Issue "2D Materials for Advanced Devices"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 July 2021) | Viewed by 20570
Since the isolation of the first single layer of graphite (graphene) and the revelation of its outstanding optical, electrical, and mechanical properties, increased interests have focused on all existing layered materials and in developing novel 2D nanomaterials. Two-dimensional materials are extensively used in various 2D/flexible technological applications such as nanoelectronics, optoelectronics, energy, composites, sensing, filtration, nanocoating, life science, and medicine. In the last few years, remarkable efforts have been made towards the growth of high-quality, atomically thin, and large domain films, as well as a realizing electronic grade 2D materials. Except for graphene, immature 2D materials requires tremendous work in making a substantial transition from reporting the fundamental properties and the experimental proof-of-concept (feasibility) to the technology development and validation.
The aim of this Special Issue, entitled “2D Materials for Advanced Devices”, is to offer the latest cutting-edge research and development of 2D technology. This issue seeks to publish recent advances in the synthesis of novel and high-quality 2D materials, device fabrication and testing, integration challenges solving, and surface and interface engineering. Both experimental and theoretical articles will be published in this Special Issue, focusing on the state-of-the-art of recent research on the engineering and developments of 2D materials for advanced devices such as graphene and related materials, hexagonal boron nitride, transition metal dichalcogenides, silicene, phosphorene, tellurene, topological insulators, oxides, nitrides, carbides, hydroxides, perovskites, MOFs, MXenes, etc.
As a renowned expert in the field of 2D nanomaterials, I would like to invite you to submit a manuscript to foster the “2D Materials for Advanced Devices” Special Issue.

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.
