Special Issue "2D Materials for Nanoelectronics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 March 2021.
Interests: graphene; nanoelectronics; microwaves; optoelectronics; microelectronics and semiconductor engineering; electronic engineering; ferroelectric
Nanoelectronics is the main beneficiary of the discoveries in 2D materials, driving electronics at the atomic scale. Moore’s law will not end, but will be saturated at certain dimensions of actual CMOS transistors since quantum and thermal effects will downgrade the performances of Si transistors. Therefore, alternatives are being sought after for new materials, new electronic devices, and new functionalities, placing 2D materials in the main stream of research today. Of course, there are many challenges for 2D materials to be applied in nanoelectronics: (i) the growth of 2D materials including graphene at wafer scale with a very reduced number of defects; (ii) low contact resistances; (iii) the interfaces between 2D materials and the ambient conditions; and many others. This Special Issue will attempt to address these challenges.

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.
