Newly emerging semiconductors, such as silicon carbide (SiC), are attractive for advanced power devices, due to their superior physical properties. Owing to the remarkable improvement in SiC wafer quality and the progress in device technology, high-voltage SiC Schottky barrier diodes (SBDs) and field-effect transistors (FETs), which significantly outperform Si counterparts, have been demonstrated and, in recent years, the market of SiC power devices has increased considerably thanks to the application of electric vehicles.
In recent years, several interesting applications of this material in different fields (MEMS, optical devices, radiation detectors, biomedical devices, quantum devices, high temperature electronics, photovoltaic, water splitting) have been proposed thanks to the outstanding mechanical, optical, and radiation hardness, as well as biocompatibility properties of this material.
This Special Issue seeks to showcase research papers, short communications, and review articles that focus on these new applications outside the power electronics mainstream. The material and devices characterization, the design, the processing, and properties simulations for these new applications are all inside the scopes of this Special Issue.

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. 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.
