Special Issue Information
III-nitride semiconductors are wide bandgap materials, and their alloys can cover a wide spectral range, from ultraviolet to infrared. The invention and development of efficient InGaN-based blue light-emitting diodes (LEDs) represents a tremendously successful use of these semiconductors. High-performance devices such as violet/blue/green LEDs and laser diodes (LDs) have been commercialized using the established technology of epitaxial growth and device processing.
Advanced epitaxial growth and device processing technologies should be explored to develop novel light-emitting devices. These technologies can contribute to developing high-performance devices such as micro-LEDs, visible light-based communication, and UV-LEDs. Many emerging applications of light-emitting devices have been demonstrated; therefore, proper LED epitaxial growth and processing techniques must be developed.
We would like to invite researchers to contribute to this Special Issue. The potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Long-wavelength emissions of InGaN-based LEDs;
- Micro-LEDs for displays and light communication;
- Visible/UV LDs;
- UV LEDs;
- Low-dimensional structures/nanostructures;
- LED processing;
- Material growth on novel substrates;
- LED epitaxy and characterization.

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 2000 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.
