Semiconductor nanoparticles (also known as colloidal quantum dots) have attracted a great deal of attention over the past two decades or more due to their unique size-dependent physical properties, and are exploited as promising materials for a wide range of applications including biological/chemical sensors, bioimaging, optoelectronics, etc. In the early days, II-VI and III-V semiconductor nanoparticles were intensively studied. In recent years, nanoparticles of other semiconductors, such as IV-VI, IV, I-III-VI2 and I2-II-IV-VI4, have become readily available. With this background, many researchers have worked toward the development of electric and/or optoelectronic devices using various kinds of semiconductor nanoparticles.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will attempt to cover the recent advancements in the semiconductor nanoparticles for electric device applications, including photovoltaic devices, light emitting devices, thermoelectric devices, and quantum devices.

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.
