Special Issue "Correlated Electron Crystals"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 June 2017)
The studies on “correlated electrons” have not slowed down for a hundred years. The complex physics behind correlated electron systems covers so many intriguing topics, involving many factors such as spin/lattice/orbital/charge couplings, geometrical frustration, quantum spin fluctuation, topological states, superconductivity, and so on. Several examples of recent focuses are quantum spin liquid, multiferroicity, strong spin orbital coupling in 4d and 5d electrons, and Weyl semimetal. The fast development of correlated electron systems puts a high demand on crystal growth of new materials and related characterizations. The discovery of new materials, and synthesis of not only polycrystalline, but also crystalline samples, has become essential for a better standing or the discovery of new physics of correlated electrons.
The Special Issue on “Correlated Electron Crystals” is intended to provide a unique international forum, aimed at introducing crystal growth, as well as the physical properties of various samples, covering a broad range of topics on correlated electron systems. Scientists working in a wide range of disciplines are invited to contribute to this cause.
The topics summarized under the keywords broadly cover examples of a great number of sub-topics in mind. The volume is especially open for any innovative contributions involving crystal growth and characterizations of correlated electron systems.

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. Crystals 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 1200 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.
