Special Issue "Advances in Organic Semiconductors and Novel Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (25 May 2022) | Viewed by 2893
Interests: organic semiconductors; thin films; optoelectronic devices
The success of microelectronics is based on the important advances in the fabrication of silicon-based integrated circuits. However, a number of physical, ambient and economic factors associated with the use of silicon have motivated research into electronic systems based on other advanced technologies. Organic microelectronics is considered a promising research field because of its great potential in the applications of organic semiconductors, as an alternative to the traditional inorganic semiconductors such as silicon. Organic semiconductors can be used in electronic devices, such as photodiodes, thin film transistors, sensors, organic memories, among others.
Organic semiconductors have significant advantages, such as a cheaper and easy processing, and a good compatibility with a wide range of substrates. Since organic materials can be easily tuned to improve their electrical, optical, electrochemical and morphological properties, their potential applicability is reinforced. In this regard, the search for new organic semiconductors for optoelectronic applications has become an appealing goal for the microelectronic field. Moreover, the introduction of organic devices in the field of novel applications has attracted the interest of the industry.
We welcome the submission of original research papers, short communications, and review articles that focus on organic semiconductors and their applications.
The Special Issue on “Advances in Organic Semiconductors and Novel Applications” brings together contributions from scientists working on the latest research developments in the field of organic semiconductors, their synthesis and design, analysis, characterization, thin film fabrication, device fabrication and design, optoelectronic devices physics, and their electronic/optoelectronic applications.
We look forward to receiving your submissions!

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. 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.
