Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Research on the fabrication of highly efficient optoelectronic devices has been tremendously expanded in the last decades, mainly thanks to the development of new materials which either substitute or incorporate conventional ones. Nowadays, a plethora of inorganic materials is already being used in devices such as solar cells, transistors, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), photodetectors, and catalysts. In recent years, nanomaterials have attracted considerable attention due to their excellent magnetic and optoelectronic responses, enhanced stability, and high surface-to-volume ratio, which qualify them as promising candidates to replace or complement conventional technologies. Therefore, this Special issue will cover a broad array of topics focused on inorganic nanomaterials and nanocomposites, emphasizing their synthesis, properties, and applications.

  • Inorganic nanomaterials (semiconductors, quantum dots, oxides, ceramics, etc.)
  • Nanocomposites (hybrid nanomaterials, inorganic/organic, etc.)
  • Optoelectronic properties
  • Applications (catalysis, solar cells, lasers, photodetectors, etc.)

I hope you opt to participate in this Special Issue by contributing your original research articles or review papers.

Dr. Sotirios Christodoulou

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.
