Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The narrative of modern materials science has been significantly enriched by the emergence of 2D nanomaterials. These atomically thin layers, with their unique electronic, optical, and mechanical properties, have redefined the boundaries of what is possible in electronic and optoelectronic applications. From the groundbreaking graphene to a myriad of transition metal dichalcogenides and beyond, 2D nanomaterials have continually showcased their versatility and promise in a range of groundbreaking devices.

With attributes such as high electron mobility, flexibility, transparency, and strong light–matter interactions, 2D nanomaterials are rapidly emerging as the bedrock for next-generation transistors, photodetectors, modulators, and light-emitting devices. Furthermore, their ability to form van der Waals heterostructures allows for the crafting of bespoke materials with tailored electronic and optoelectronic properties, opening doors to a multitude of novel application avenues.

However, as with all burgeoning technologies, challenges exist. These range from scalable synthesis and fabrication techniques to deeper understandings of their fundamental properties and potential defect-mediated behaviors. Addressing these challenges is not just crucial but also brimming with opportunities for researchers to push the envelope further.

In this Special Issue titled "Electronic and Optoelectronic Applications Based on 2D Nanomaterials", we aim to create a confluence of pioneering research efforts addressing both the incredible advancements and existing challenges in the field. We invite contributions that delve into the synthesis, characterization, theoretical modeling, and application of 2D nanomaterials in electronic and optoelectronic devices.

Together, let us illuminate the pathways of this vibrant research arena and pave the way for the next epoch of electronic and optoelectronic innovations.

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. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2900 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.
