Special Issue in Polymers: Polymer Based Electronic Devices and Sensors
Functional polymer composites continue to be a research hotspot due to their promising properties and diverse applications. Polymer composites with high fatigue strength, low weight, and corrosion resistance make it widely applied in our daily life. Recent advances in photo-enhanced polymer composites have enabled material changes in behavior in response to light illumination and extended its application such as photocatalysis, photo-enhanced electroresistance, and photo-enhanced piezoelectricity.
This Special Issue will provide a forum to disseminate new developments of polymers and polymer composites. Researchers in the field are cordially invited to submit relevant manuscripts concerning the development of innovative material for a Special Issue entitled “Photo-Enhanced Functional Polymer Composites” within the journal Polymers.

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. Polymers 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 1800 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.
