Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

ABX3-based perovskites have potential applications in photovoltaics and optoelectronics due to their unique photoelectric properties, such as high absorption coefficients, long carrier diffusion lengths, unusually high defect tolerance, and adjustable band gaps. Perovskites can be divided into organic and inorganic metal halides according to their chemical compositions and have great application potential in various fields such as solar cells, light-emitting diodes, detectors, and laser devices. Simultaneous improvements in performance and stability over the past few decades, as well as the availability of solution-printed laminated structures, have seen these materials emerge as low-cost alternatives to the commercial photovoltaic industry. Although perovskites have been extensively studied, addressing long-term stability issues and further developing photoelectric conversion efficiency will be important to the challenge of achieving large-scale commercial production. The purpose of this Special Issue is to collect the latest research progress and results of perovskites, ranging from the basic theory, synthesis methods, and structural design, to their extensive applications, as well as the possibility of the widespread use of perovskites in future applications. We invite scientists from different disciplines to contribute their work to this cause.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
