Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Innovative developments in the field of two-dimensional (2D) nanoelectromechanical, nanoelectronic and photovoltaic systems have led to the need to integrate two-dimensional materials with each other. "Splicing" of two-dimensional materials, apart from the trivial case of lateral contacts, is provided mainly by electrostatic dipole forces known as van der Waals (vdW) interaction. To date, several dozen types of such heterostructures have been created and investigated, and they have already shown a huge potential for the development of this direction of nanotechnology.

Emphasis of this Special Issue will be on collecting fundamental studies, experimental research, numerical approaches, analysis tools, design guidelines dealing with new compounds—2D vertical heterostructures with covalent interlayer bonding. Expected features are quite promising for the design of new devices based on the covalent bonding of 2D materials.

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. Surfaces is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1400 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.
