Special Issue "Organic Bioelectronics: Design, Fabrication, Characterization, Modeling and Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 May 2022.
Interests: organic electronics; flexible electronics; multiphysics modeling; semiconductor physics; neuromorphic circuits
Organic bioelectronics is an interdisciplinary study that involves the integration of electronics and living systems. Applications of organic bioelectronics include, but are not limited to, tactile and metabolite sensors for electrophysiological recording and stimulation; robust epidermal and implantable devices that aid the monitoring of patient’s healthcare; electronics for both detection and characterization of biological materials, especially at the cellular and subcellular level; assistive technologies for individuals with brain-related disease or injury, such as paralysis, and artificial retinas; and new technology for protein structure–function measurements. Realizing the promise of organic bioelectronics requires research that crosses disciplines, such as electrical engineering, biology, chemistry, physics, and materials science.
The recent developments in organic bioelectronics are facing new challenges, such as lack of adequate metrological tools for cellular and molecular measurements, the difficulty in creating better sensors and developing novel fabrication techniques, the limited bandwidth and lower detection precision in biosensors and actuators, and the necessity of verifying whether massive parallelization of biosensors can bring the same benefits as those in silicon integrated circuits in consideration of Moore’s law. To address these challenges, this Special Issue invites high-quality submissions with significant scientific and technical contributions related to the key topics of organic bioelectronics as follows:
- Self-assembled electronic materials with long-term stability and biodegradability
- Massively parallel hardware architectures for high-performance computing
- Biotic interface between organic sensors and biological tissues
- Additive manufacturing for new information processing systems, sensors, actuators, and molecular fabrication down to the atomic level
- Multiphysics modeling of biocompatible and flexible bioelectronic 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 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.
