Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Thin film electronic devices and circuits have been attracting more and more attention because they can be used in many industry fields, such as flat panel displays, energy devices, sensors, memories, and so on. In addition, they may be integrated into conventional CMOS integrated circuits and systems. From a fabrication point of view, thin film electronic devices and circuits can be prepared on not only rigid (including glass, wafer, etc.) but also flexible substrates (including polymer, paper, etc.), which means they may be potentially used in some quickly advancing fields, such as the Internet of Things and medical electronics. This Special Issue aims to give an overview of the most recent advances in thin film electronic devices and circuits in the abovementioned fields. This Special Issue aims to provide selected contributions on advances in the physics, processing, design, characterization, and applications of novel thin film electronic devices and circuits.
Potential topics include but are not limited to:
- Thin film transistors;
- Thin film solar cells;
- Thin film sensors;
- Thin film memories;
- Device physics about novel thin film electronic devices;
- Process development of novel devices;
- Characterization of novel thin films, devices, and circuits;
- Design of novel thin film devices and circuits;
- Pixel circuits for flat panel displays, sensors, and memories;
- Active matrix addressing methods for displays, sensors, and memories;
- Applications of thin film devices and circuits;
- System on glass (SOG) technologies;
- Integration of thin film devices and CMOS circuits.

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 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.
