Special Issue in Micromachines: Deformable Bioelectronics Based on Functional Micro/nanomaterials, Volume II
Deformable bioelectronics based on functional micro/nanomaterials, the topic of this Special Issue, have attracted huge attention owing to their tremendous potential in wearable and implantable applications. Specifically, high-performance functional micro/nanomaterials are able to allow the deformable electronics to be more feasible in next-generation healthcare and medicine due to their exceptional biocompatibility, flexibility, and even bioresorbability while maintaining high electrical performances. Therefore, the multifunctional deformable electronics integrated with such superior micro/nanomaterials have been expected to be comparable to conventional material-driven devices in the near future. An approach to the realization of the wearable/implantable bioelectronics can be divided into several methods: i) Using intrinsically flexible/stretchable/biocompatible conducting and semiconducting micro/nanocomposites, ii) enabling the rigid inorganic micro/nanomembranes to be deformable using the serpentine interconnect and neutral mechanical plane, iii) integrating commercial electronic chips, non-volatile memory modules, batteries, and wireless/power communication parts into flexible or transient substrates. In this Special Issue, we will cover various methodologies related to flexible/stretchable and bioresorbable micro/nanomaterial-based wearable and implantable bioelectronics. We invite researchers who are working on deformable materials and devices, ranging from biocompatible functional material synthesis and its device fabrication to process and system integration, to submit their high-quality manuscript for publication in this 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 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. Micromachines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1800 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.
