From cell phone to mainframe computer, from precision surgery to autonomous driving, semiconductors have been playing pivotal roles in our daily lives, and in technological advancement. The continuous scaling by Moore’s law over the decades has enabled numerous innovations in materials and device architectures that enable new levels of performance. The emergence of 3D devices and heterogeneous integration brings forth opportunities to fulfill critical specifications. As semiconductors enter the nanotechnology sphere, stringent technical challenges require rigorous innovations in devices and materials.
This Special Issue aims to provide a forum for the most up-to-date, high-caliber research efforts in nanoelectronic semiconductor devices and materials. We invite both academic and industrial researchers to submit their works in order to foster the current progress on the subject, and to present new ideas for future applications and new technologies. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Novel FINFET and nanosheet device architectures and characterization.
- Materials innovations in gate-all-around nanosheet devices.
- SiGe and new strained layers for devices.
- Gate materials and processing for nano devices.
- Materials and processing issues for 3D NAND memories.
- Electrode materials and characterization for PCM, MRAM, and other memory devices.
- ALD and CVD materials for semiconductors.
- Advanced BEOL interconnects and metallizations.
- FCVD, SOG, and polymeric materials in advanced semiconductor devices.

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.
