Special Issue "Advances of Semiconductor Nanostructures"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2020.
Interests: electronic materials and devices, nanoscience, nanotechnology
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Since gate-all-around nanowire devices were combined with 3D integration, semiconductor nanostructures have promise to scale up the overall performance of electronics technology. Traditional scaling-down has allowed the construction of components and final chips with higher speed and density, lower power, increased functionality, etc. However, a change paradigm suggests that “More Moore” and “More Than Moore” will evolve towards novel strategies involving new materials, advanced devices, or higher-value nanosystems.
This Special Issue of Materials attempts to cover the recent advances in semiconductor nanostructures for logic and memory, sensors and actuators, biological and mechanical nanosystems, etc.

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 papers will be 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 2000 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.
