Focus Issue on Solid State Electronic Devices and Materials

Call for Papers

This focus issue of the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology aims to cover emerging solid state electronic devices and materials for compound semiconductors, novel materials, Si-based processing, devices and integration, and photonic materials/devices. Solid state devices and materials have shown great potential in wide applications including electronics, photonics, and sensors. This focus issue addresses the development of novel materials with superior properties and technology shrinkage for industrial mass production.

Topics of interest in this issue include, but are not limited, to the following items:

  • Compound semiconductor materials and devices
  • Novel materials including 2D, nanotubes, nanosheet based materials and related applications
  • Si-based processing, devices and Integration including Si, SiC, SiGe, Ge-based technology
  • Photonic materials/devices
  • Novel device concepts and applications such as flexible electronics
  • Integrated solid state sensors for physical, chemical, and biomedical detection
  • Device simulation and modeling
  • Analog/mixed-signal integrated circuits and device integration

Reviews, critical reviews, and perspective papers are welcomed.
