Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We cordially invite you to contribute to this special issue on “Advancements in Solar Cells and Materials for Photovoltaics 2.0”, for the MDPI journal International Journal of Molecular Sciences. Photovoltaics is a credible and sustainable way of producing green energy, and several materials and technologies are currently explored, with the aim of improving efficiency, stability and reliability, and of minimizing cost.

This Special Issue aims to rapidly publish contributions on the synthesis, properties’ characterization and application of all aspects of solar cells and photovoltaics with a focus on molecular research and material-related aspects. Topics include, without being limited to:

  • methods to increase the efficiency of silicon solar cells
  • tandem cells
  • bifacial cells
  • thin film materials and devices (e.g., CIGS, CdTe, CzTS, SbSe, …)
  • perovskites and related materials/devices
  • III-V and InGaN-based solar cells
  • solutions for building-integrated photovoltaics
  • advanced material functionalization and deposition for photovoltaics
  • characterization techniques
  • device degradation and stability
  • modeling of solar cell materials and devices
  • defect identification

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
