It is our pleasure to invite you to submit an article to this Special Issue of Nanomaterials, on the topic of “Advanced Nanomaterials for Flexible and Stretchable Electronic/ Optoelectronic Devices”. Nanomaterials are materials with one or more dimensions falling into the nanometer scale. The dramatic size shrinkage renders them new electronic, magnetic, optical and thermoelectric properties. One of the most successful examples is colloidal semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) whose sizes are typically within several nanometers. With strong size-dependent spectral properties and narrow emission spectra, QDs have achieved great success in applications such as biological imaging, catalysis, and sensing. As modern society gradually steps into the intelligent age, nanomaterials will have broad application potential in a flexible display, electronic skin, wearable electronics, artificial nervous systems, human–machine interactions, etc.
This Special Issue will show the latest research progresses and challenges of nanomaterials developed for flexible and stretchable electronic/optoelectronic devices from the perspective of the material syntheses, device structures and applications. We encourage submissions on synthesis and design of functional nanomaterials (such as colloidal CdSe or InP QDs, perovskite QDs, etc.), and study of device engineering and device physics. In addition, applications of advanced nanomaterials in light emitting diodes, photodetectors, flexible batteries and wearable sensors are welcome.
All kinds of papers—research articles, letters, communications, and reviews—are welcome. We would like to thank the Nanomaterials Editorial Office for its encouragement and support. We would also like to thank all the authors for their valuable contributions and the reviewers for their valuable comments. This Special Issue would not have been possible without their contributions and encouragement.

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.
