Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Photodetection, which converts optical signals into electrical signals, is an irreplaceable source of information. Photodetectors with different response spectra have been used in various applications, such as imaging, communication, measurement, monitoring, etc.

To meet the growing demand for higher figure-of-merit parameters and new application scenarios, it is crucial to improve the performance of photodetectors through the development of new materials, novel device design, and exploration of new application. Accordingly, this Special Issue seeks to showcase research papers and review articles on (1) the methodology of synthesizing emerging photodetecting materials, e.g., perovskites, polymers, novel two-dimensional materials, and quantum dots; (2) photodetectors with novel structures, physics, and high figure-of-merit parameters; (3) demonstration of new applications of photodetectors.

We look forward to receiving your submissions.

Dr. Zhanfeng Huang
Guest Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Micromachines 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.
