Special Issue in Electronics: Two-Dimensional Electronics and Optoelectronics
Two-dimensional (2D) van der Waals nanostructures such as graphene, hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) sheets, and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) have gained tremendous research interest in physical, chemical, and biological applications. Carbon dots (CDs) are nanoparticles of graphene and thin graphite with diameters of several nanometers. It has been demonstrated that CDs are emerging new fluorescent materials, which are biologically compatible. The structurally similar boron nitride dots (BNDs) are of nanoparticle h-BN sheets. Similar to CDs, BNDs also attained excitation-dependent fluorescent properties and are biologically compatible. This Special Issue shall focus on highlighting latest research discovery of CDs, BNDs, as well as nanoparticles of other van der Waals materials, such as TMDCs. Articles related to the synthesis, characterization, and application of these CDs and related van der Waals nanostructures will be included into the Special Issue.Prof. Dr. Yoke Khin Yap
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 papers will be 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. C 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.
