Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

New materials and computational paradigms more efficient than traditional von Neumann architectures need to be pursued to develop new neuromorphic paradigms, capable of parallel computation with power consumption several orders of magnitude below that of the digital microprocessors currently in use. Memristors might be the enabler of this much-needed technological leap. However, memristor devices are not yet fully understood, nor is the modeling yet at the point needed for the design of productive integrated systems. The present solutions are not yet at a stage making large-scale integration possible, partly because memristors do not share building materials and processing steps with mainstream electronics.

The implementation of memristive devices based on amorphous oxide semiconductors (AOSs) and eventually integrated with thin-film transistors (TFTs), based on the same material/technique, for electronic support should significantly reduce manufacturing costs and efforts for system-on-panel and IoT applications. To surpass these challenges vast investment has been made on solution-based electronic devices to reduce the electronic waste and reach a more affordable technology to society.

We invite researchers and scientists to showcase their work in this Special Issue with research papers and review articles that focus on trends in AOS-based memristors, thin-film transistors, diodes and integration strategies, modelling, and simulation, from fundamental research to applications.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Micromachines 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 1800 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.
