Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nano-electronic devices based on 2D materials offer many benefits for the more-than-Moore technology and Internet-of-Things applications. For the scientific community, 2D materials offer a new dreamland for creation and innovation, based on their unique properties, which allow for the improvement in existing (opto)-electronic, flexible, and wearable technology and functionalized multi-responsive devices.

In the last two decades, tremendous research efforts have been devoted to developing novel methods and strategies for the large-scale production of two-dimensional materials, as well as to modelling and fabricating electronic components such as field-effect transistors, sensors, diodes, printed and flexible devices.

Despite worldwide effort, researchers are still confronted with common challenges in material fabrication and device-performance optimization: gaining control over the materials’ fabrication to gain high crystallinity and uniformity, scaling up the material growth and controlling the production costs; optimizing the device structures and on-chip integration.

To address this demand, researchers have been developing an ever-growing interest in 2D semiconductors, leading to their great success.

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials is interested in the preparation, functionalization, and characterization of 2D materials to showcase the most recent advances in the application of 2D semiconductors for (Opto)-Electronic Applications. Original research articles communications, and reviews are welcome. We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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.
