In the past two decades, we have witnessed tremendous progress in the fields of advanced crystals, including two-dimensional (2D) transition-metal dichalcogenides, black phosphorus, MXenes, hexagonal boron nitride, wide-bandgap semiconductors, etc., as well optoelectronics, including light-emitting diodes, solar cells, photodetectors, and sensors. The key to this success is dependent on careful investigations into crystal growth, structural, electrical, mechanical, and optical properties. In this Special Issue, entitled "Advances in Crystals for Optoelectronics", researchers will have the opportunity to publish their novel findings related to recent advances in crystals and optoelectronics devices, including synthesis procedures, crystal structures, underlying theory, computation, models, and novel functional devices for new applications in optoelectronic fields. We aim to cover a wide range of advanced crystals (both inorganic and organic), including hybrid perovskite materials. Submissions on original experimental or research, including materials development, device architecture, and novel device characterization methodology, will be considered. This Special Issue will also include reviews, brief research reports, and perspectives related to advanced crystals and optoelectronics devices.

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.
