Special Issue "Applications of Advanced Nanomaterials on Microelectronic Devices and MEMS"
A special issue of Micromachines (ISSN 2072-666X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2016)
In recent years, applications of advanced nanomaterials on microelectronic devices and MEMS have been a highly developing field, due to the flexibility and light weight for daily use, which has the potential to be deployable. Nanomaterials which provide one of the greatest potentials for improving performance and extending capabilities of products in a number of industrial sectors are a new class of materials, having dimensions in the 1–100 nm range. The most successful examples are seen in microelectronics, where "smaller" has always meant a greater performance ever since the invention of transistors: e.g., higher density of integration, faster response, lower cost, and less power consumption. Therefore, the fields of nanostructure devices have been the subject of many reviews. We invite investigators to contribute original research articles on the “Applications of Advanced Nanomaterials on Microelectronic Devices and MEMS” topic. Potential subjects include, but are not limited to:
- Nanoparticles, nanowires, or nanosheets: preparation and applications;
- Nanostructures for microelectronic and photonic Devices applications;
- Nanostructures for energy applications;
- Optical properties of nano and micro devices;
- Nanotechnology on microfluidics or nanofluidics and other micro/nano devices;
- Nanotechnology on Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS).

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 1400 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.
