Call for Papers: Flexible Display and Integrated Sensor

This Series focuses on core materials, processes and devices for flexible display and integrated sensor applications. We cover organic, graphene, transition dichalcogenide as well as light emitting diode, strain sensor, photo sensor, and thin film transistor. Our focus is the review of recent progress in this technology and understanding the properties of materials, process and device.

Call for Papers: Soft Materials

This series focuses on soft materials and their developing applications. We cover polymers, gels, colloids and emulsions. Our focus is on understanding the properties of soft materials, and developing new class of applications based on their properties. Hybridized soft materials with nanocomposites and supramolecular nanoparticle will be reported as a material. Actuators and sensors based on dynamic properties of soft materials like stimuli-responsive properties, self-healing properties and so on will be included as an application.  

Call for Papers: Solar Fuel Generation

Solar energy is the mostly promising renewable energy resource that has the potential to replace the fossil fuels.  Photovoltaics have been actively investigated as a prototype of converting solar energy to electrical energy.  Recently, approaches for converting solar energy to chemical energy, i.e. “Solar Fuel Generation” have attracted strong scientific/industrial interest, because it can facilitate shift to new energy paradigms like the hydrogen economy.  It also helps suppressing the global climate changes by converting the green-house gases to useful chemicals.  The current thematic issue will cover various aspects of the state-of-the-art studies on the solar fuel generation technology.

Call for Papers: Synthesis, Self-Assembly, and Applications of Colloidal Inorganic Nanocrystals

Colloidal nanocrystals are widely used in various applications such as electronic devices, phosphors, catalysts, battery, and have formed an important platform for biomedical research. The synthesis of highly uniform nanomaterials with controlled size, shape, and compositions and arrangement of nanocrystals them into highly ordered arrays is paramount to tailor the physical properties for many emerging applications. Papers in this thematic series will introduce and review the recent advances in the field of the synthesis, self-assembly, and applications of colloidal inorganic nanocrystals to discover the possibility of the practical applications of colloidal nanocrystals.
