Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The surge of graphene and related 2D materials has revolutionized research in electronic and optoelectronic devices. In particular, the opportunity to have insulator, semiconductor, and semi-metal electronic behaviors in mono-atomic thick materials has expanded the design possibilities. The so-called quantum engineering of 2D materials, exemplified by lateral and van-der-Waals heterostructures, is the new paradigm in device design. The simplified fabrication process enabled by exfoliation and the advances in more traditional methods have allowed the scientific community to explore new concepts of devices that exploit combinations of layered materials, as well as integration with traditional bulk ones, seeking disruptive technological advances. There are thousands of possibilities to analyze, and each application may benefit from a specific device structure and a certain combination of bulk/2D materials.

This Special Issue is focused on the analysis of the electronic and optoelectronic properties of devices based on graphene and related layered materials, with an emphasis on their heterostructures and also on their interfaces with materials such as bulk metals or insulators. Both experimental and theoretical approaches are welcome for 2D material-based devices such as transistors, photodetectors, sensors, memristors, etc.

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. Nanomaterials 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.
