Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
This Special Issue is dedicated to Professor Shuji Nakamura in recognition of the 30th anniversary of his invention of the blue light emitting diode (LED) based on GaN. His invention was the catalyst for rapid developments in multiple fields, from solid-state lighting to advanced display technologies. Professor Nakamura has received many accolades and awards for his pioneering research into III-nitride materials and devices, including the 2014 Nobel Prize in Physics.
This Special Issue is an opportunity for the international academic and industry research communities to share their latest experimental and theoretical discoveries in the synthesis and applications of III-nitride semiconductors. We are also interested in discussions regarding key challenges and future directions for this critical research field that was first opened up by the work of Prof. Nakamura.

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. Crystals 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 2600 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.
