Special Issue "Semiconductor Nanomaterials for Optoelectronic Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 February 2024 | Viewed by 3527
In the past decades, nanotechnology has been applied to reduce the size or dimension of optoelectronic devices in which the quantum confinement of electron and hole carriers will practically optimize energy consumption. In this new trend of sustainable optoelectronic applications, high-quality semiconductor nanomaterials are convincing candidates for the fabrication of nanometer-sized optoelectronic devices. There are two methods of nanomaterial fabrication for nanodevices: the top-down and the bottom-up approach. The top-down lithographed approach (e.g., by EUV, FIB, e-beam writer) is the favorite for the manufacturing process, but the bottom-up self-assembling approach (e.g., MOCVD, MBE) is more advantageous when it comes to sample growth of defect-free and homogenous chemical composition. Both approaches benefit from the quantum effect of nanodevices derived from these semiconductor nanomaterials.
Therefore, we cordially invite professors and researchers to submit original manuscripts or reviewed articles to this Special Issue, including but not limited to the topics of methodology, fabrication, characterization, and properties for optoelectronic nanodevice applications.

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.
