Special Issue "Microsystem for Electronic Devices"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2021.
Interests: electronic device packaging; white-light-emitting diode; laser illumination; quantum dots; thermal management of electronic devices; visible light communication
Microsystems have a wide range of applications in electronics, such as sensors, actuators, detectors, converters, and transistors. They also contain many interdisciplinary scientific problems that need to be solved, including manufacturing, measurement, control, reliability, efficiency, and sensitivity. Many interesting characteristics may occur due to the scale effect. The microsystem with micro or nanostructures can provide many positive or negative functions in applications, such as hydrophobic/hydrophilic, lubricating or friction, light trapping or enhancing, scattering cancellation or improvement, electromagnetic enhancing or shielding, and electron blocking or transporting. With the development of advanced or extreme manufacturing methods, novel microsystems and applications are continuously increasing. In this Special Issue, we welcome the contributions of microsystems and their applications in the electronic field. The articles contain theoretical and experimental studies on microsystems but are not limited to:
- Design, finite element analysis (FEA), simulation, and measurement of microsystems;
- Microreactors, surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS), and related biological/chemical microsystems;
- Microactuators, sensors, controllers, and MEMS-related electronic devices;
- Light-emitting diodes (LEDs), microdisplay components and devices, and other related microphotoelectric devices;
- Lithium ion or solar cell batteries, supercapacitors, energy harvesters, pyroelectric components, photodetectors, and other related microenergy devices;
- Microgrinding, cutting, milling, drilling, and related micro–nanostructure manufacturing;
- Microheat pipes, ultra-thin vapor chambers, and other related thermal management devices.

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.
