Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Halide perovskite is known for its promise of realizing high-efficiency optoelectronics. However, in recent years, it has been found that the structural softness of perovskite lattice that gives rise to its solution processibility and chemical diversity also hinders its commercial applications in terms of long-term stability. These structural problems span across a wide range of length scales and time scales, touching on topics such as ion transport, phase transition, electron phonon coupling, etc. Understanding the structural aspects of halide perovskite with atomic-level precision and controllability is therefore an essential for producing greater perovskite-based devices.

This Special Issue is aimed at atomic-level investigation and the control of halide perovskite structures. We welcome works from both theoretical and experimental branches of the perovskite community, tackling issues surrounding the structural and electronic properties of halide perovskite with atomic precision and insight, including electronic formulation and calculation, nanoscale interfacial engineering, electron microscopy studies, and novel characterization tools.

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.
