This Special Issue aims to bringing together professionals and academics performing advanced research on materials with outstanding optical and optoelectronic properties that have the potential to positively shape the information-processing and energy-demanding world of tomorrow. The main purpose is to collect innovative and original contributions targeting modern challenges in optoelectronics and photonics.
Nanomaterials research is highly multidisciplinary and strongly benefiting from international cooperation, and has successfully entered the stage of industrial application. For instance, quantum dots are being utilized as high-brightness high-color-purity luminescent nanostructures for display technologies, and as tailorable light-absorbing structures for highly sensitive photodetectors, and have even been acting as nonclassical light sources for quantum information systems. Similarly, the revisited class of 2D materials with controllable single-layer features that are now increasingly being explored promise a new age of optoelectronic nanodevices. Ultimately, the synthesis of quantum materials, some even with topologically protected properties, has evolved to the extent that mass producibility and device integration have become common topics.
In fact, certain materials (e.g., perovskites) have shown very interesting properties that render them attractive candidates for optoelectronic devices such as solar cells, light-emitting diodes, detectors and lasers, etc. Future on-chip optoelectronic circuitry for computing or possibly biomedical applications may also benefit greatly from recent advances in this overarching field.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Optoelectronic materials;
- Semiconductor nanomaterials;
- Functional optical materials;
- Photovoltaic materials;
- Nonlinear optical materials;
- Quantum materials;
- Van-der-Waals materials;

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 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.
