Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

During the past few years, perovskites have emerged as “star materials” in optoelectric devices with great potential in practical applications. The symmetric/asymmetric nature of the crystal lattice not only affects the energy band structure, phonon frequency, and defect states of perovskites, but also plays a key role in device performance. Therefore, the study of the symmetric/asymmetric nature and the crystal quality is important. In this Special Issue on "Advances in perovskites: growth, characterization, and optoelectronic devices", we will mainly focus on the recent advances in the area of perovskites including: 1, new methods for growing the inorganic and hybrid perovskites; 2, the optical characteristic, morphology, and crystal structure of the as-synthesized perovskites; 3, anion/cation exchange/arrangement and crystal symmetric/asymmetric; 4, the stability of perovskites in different environments; 5, fabrication of optoelectronic devices including photodetector, solar cells, laser diodes, and light-emitting diodes. We also welcome the theoretical works calculated by DFT or Comsol, by such we can deeply understand the basic physical and chemical mechanisms within the material preparations and device performances.

All interested researchers are kindly invited to contribute to this Special Issue with their original research articles, short communications, and review articles. Please note that all submitted papers must be within the general scope of the Symmetry journal.

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. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2400 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.
