Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recent advancements in nanomaterials have enabled a wide range of devices for novel electronic, photonic, and optoelectronic applications with new functionality and improved performance. This scope/topics of this Special Issue include the following:

  1. Electronic and optoelectronic nanomaterials (e.g., 2D materials, quantum dots) for innovative applications (e.g., high-performance nano-transistors, nanolasers, micro LEDs)
  2. Integration of interdisciplinary technologies for manipulating, processing, and engineering materials to enable new properties and applications.
  3. Novel semiconductor processing techniques, such as atomic layer deposition (ALD), atomic layer etching (ALE), super ink-jet printing, self-assembly techniques, selective etching/deposition, electron/ion beam technologies, and advanced photolithography.

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. Photonics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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.
