Special Issue "Elastomers in Electronic Applications in 2022"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 September 2022 | Viewed by 2611
Interests: polymer; surface and interface; elastomer; soft and stretchable electronic; liquid metal; sensors; catalysts
There is a growing interest in soft and stretchable electronics for applications in soft robotics, bioelectronics, and wearable and conformal electronics. Elastomeric polymers are commonly used for fabricating soft devices due to their well-suited mechanical behavior. Elastomers are not intrinsically conductive; however, there are many approaches that have been developed to create soft devices using elastomers in the past decade. In this Special Issue, we focus on elastomers in electronic applications that discuss their fabrication methods, mechanical and physical behavior, and electronic device applications. The purpose of this Special Issue is to coherently collect these studies and present them to a wide industrial and academic community.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Polymers is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2400 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.
