Interests: thermoelectrics; functional ceramics; composites; thin films; two-dimensional electron gas; interface engineering
Thermoelectric materials can realize the direct conversion of heat energy and electrical energy, which gives it the potential for broader application in the field of thermoelectric power generation and cooling. Low-dimensional thermoelectric materials, especially two-dimensional thin films, have been considered as a breakthrough in the effort to decouple the correlations between electronic and thermal transport, contributing to the optimization of thermoelectric performance. Recent years have witnessed the rapid progress of research on thermoelectric thin films in topics such as novel preparation methods, structure design, two-dimensional electron gas, flexible and wearable thermoelectric devices and more. This Special Issue focuses on the most recent advances of thermoelectric thin films in topics including but not limited to inorganic, organic, and hybrid inorganic–organic thin films; flexible devices; and theoretical explanation. This Special Issue could be a good platform for you to share your recent progress in thermoelectric thin films. We encourage the submission of manuscripts in the form of research articles, short communications, and reviews.

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.
