Feature papers represent the most advanced research with significant potential for high impact in the field. A Feature Paper should be a substantial original Article that involves several techniques or approaches, provides an outlook for future research directions and describes possible research applications.
Feature papers are submitted upon individual invitation or recommendation by the scientific editors and must receive positive feedback from the reviewers.
Editor’s Choice articles are based on recommendations by the scientific editors of MDPI journals from around the world. Editors select a small number of articles recently published in the journal that they believe will be particularly interesting to readers, or important in the respective research area. The aim is to provide a snapshot of some of the most exciting work published in the various research areas of the journal.
Flexible electronics have been gaining considerable attention in recent decades, not only at the academic level but also at the industrial level. The development of electronic components/systems on highly flexible and possibly conformable substrates could allow the integration of smart functionalities, such as sensing capabilities, communication units, etc., onto any type of surface (paper, fabrics, etc.), opening up a wide range of possible applications.
The aim of this Section is to provide researchers with a highly multidisciplinary platform where they can report and read about: (i) the synthesis and processing of novel materials for flexible electronics; (ii) the chemical and physical properties of materials, from small molecules to solution processable polymers; (iii) the design and fabrication of novel devices based on organic materials such as organic field effect transistors, organic solar cells, or light emitting diodes, but also memory elements, thermoelectric generators, and others; (iv) novel fabrication procedures, with particular attention towards high-throughput and cost-efficient approaches; (v) novel applications, from flexible circuits and displays to smart tags, flexible lab on chip, artificial skin, etc.
