Special Issue "Advances in Organic Semiconductors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 February 2024 | Viewed by 673
Organic semiconductors were identified in the late 1940s, and semiconductors, which are based on small organic molecules and conjugated polymers, have been intensely investigated since the late 1980s. The performance of organic semiconductors has improved continuously over the last 30 years, and OLEDs (organic light-emitting diodes) have now successfully launched on the display market. They possess two key advantages over devices fabricated from inorganic semiconductors: mechanical flexibility and stretchability, and low manufacturing costs. This Special Issue, "Advances in Organic Semiconductors", will cover the state of the art and key challenges in the field of organic semiconductors, with a particular focus on molecular structure; design and synthesis; novel device physics; and molecular doping for mechanical flexibility/stretchability and photo-related applications.

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.
