Special Issue "High-Pressure Studies of Crystalline Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 March 2018)
High-pressure research has seen a great progress during the last few decades as a consequence of the combined development of various experimental techniques and computer simulations. Recently, the number of studies of crystalline materials under high pressure has growth exponentially and the pressure range covered by them has been extremely extended reaching magnitudes of the order of Terapascals. Important discoveries have been achieved thanks to high-pressure studies. These breakthroughs concerns different research fields including solid-state physics, chemistry, and materials science among others. Metallization of hydrogen is the most recent of them. The impact of pressure on chemical and physical properties and some of the contemporary discoveries are the main reasons for producing the current Special Issue.
The Special Issue on “High-Pressure Studies of Crystalline Materials” pretends to give a forum aimed at describing and discussing recent results of high-pressure studies on structural, mechanical, vibrational, and electronic properties of crystalline materials. The intention is to give special emphasis to phase transitions and their effects on different properties, but other issues are not excluded. The Special Issue is open to both experimental and theoretical contributions. Researchers working in a wide range of disciplines are welcomed to contribute to it. The topics summarized under the keywords given below are just broadly examples of the greater number of topics in mind. The volume is especially open for any innovative contributions and also for brief reviews of current hot topics.Prof. Dr. Daniel Errandonea
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.
