Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Hybrid organic–inorganic metal halide perovskites are at the forefront of research trends in optoelectronics thanks to their outstanding photophysical properties. These semiconductors have triggered advances in photovoltaics and offer opportunities in other applications, such as photodetectors, light-emitting diodes, and photonic devices with advanced functionalities.

Low-dimensional perovskites, in particular, are characterized by their great versatility because their structural and optical properties can be tailored by controlling their size and the nature of organic ligands. Moreover, their electronic confinement results in stable excitons at room temperature with exceptionally large exciton binding energy.

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials aims to publish original research papers and review articles focusing on the synthesis and application of optoelectronic devices of low-dimensional perovskites in the form of polycrystalline films, single crystals, or nanocrystals. Recent advances in synthetic approaches for the preparation of perovskites with different stoichiometries, composition, or shapes will be covered, as well as innovative or improved applications in devices, including photovoltaics, LEDs, lasers, and detectors.

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.
