Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 2nd International Conference on Nanotechnologies and Bionanoscience (NanoBio 2020) aims to capitalize on the rapidly growing and interconnected fields of Nanotechnology and Bionanoscience, drawing in and providing an interdisciplinary forum for scientists and engineers from academia and industry. In this Special Issue, we invite contributions from Workshop 2:  Organic and Perovskite Photovoltaics and Optoelectronics. This workshop will try to explore fundamental questions and challenges in Perovskite and Organic Photovoltaics and related optoelectronic devices. The workshop will focus on the recent advances in the fields of solar cells, light-emitting diodes, lasers, and optical devices employing perovskite or organic active layers. The aim is to gather leading researchers to share recent advances and discuss challenges and future directions for perovskite and organic photovoltaics and optoelectronic devices.

The Special Issue topics will include selected papers from the WS2 on organic and perovskite photovoltaics and optoelectronics within NanoBio 2020 in the following topics:

  • Perovskite solar cells.
  • High performance organic solar cells.
  • Novel device concepts and implementations.
  • Organic–inorganic and hybrid systems.
  • Synthesis and characterization of novel materials.
  • Perovskite lasers and light-emitting diodes.
  • Advanced photonic processes in perovskite technologies.
  • Advances un non-fullerene material acceptors.
  • Device physics and modeling.
  • Lifetime and device stability.
  • Environmental impact and toxicity of PVs related materials.
  • Flexible photovoltaics and optoelectronics.
  • Large area processing and commercialization.

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. Energies 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 2000 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.
