It has becoming increasingly important to manipulate material growth accurately at both atomic and molecular level for many emerging applications. To this end, many techniques have been delivered, such as atomic and molecular layer deposition (ALD/MLD), molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), and wet chemical methods. Atomic and molecular layers play significant roles at nanoscales in the processes of energy conversion, energy transfer and energy storage, which dominates the carrier collection efficiency, the chemical reaction rate, the sensitivity, capacity, stability, and reliability of the optoelectronic devices used in the applications of photovoltaic cells, fuel cells, rechargeable batteries, photodetectors, light-emitting diodes, sensors, memory devices and flexible devices.However, the complexities and lack of understanding of the mutual interactions at the atomic (molecular) layer/active material interface impede the developments of the energy, environmental protection, and artificial intelligence-related applications. Luckily, the surface, chemical and electronic properties of atomic and molecular layers can be manipulated by varying the crystal orientation and molecular packing interactions with the precisely controlled depositions of 3D few-layered crystals, 2D molecular layers, self-assemble organic monolayers and self-assemble few-layered nanomaterials.

In this context, we propose this focus collection to highlight the new progresses and research trends of atomic and molecular layers for novel materials and emerging devices. This focus collection includes fundamental research and practical applications, experimental studies, and computational simulations. The topics included are listed below:

  • Accurate growth of novel materials and their mechanisms via ALD/MLD, MBE, wet chemistry, and others
  • Manipulation of atomic and molecular layers for emerging applications
  • Energy Storage devices such as rechargeable batteries and supercapacitors
  • Energy conversion devices such as fuel cells and photovoltaic cells
  • Optoelectronic devices such as photodetectors and light-emitting diodes
  • Other emerging applications such as semiconductors, sensors, memory devices, medical/ healthcare/ pharmaceuticals, and flexible devices
