This special issue will focus on recent advances in the field of materials science and engineering facilitated by the use of scanning probe microscopy (SPM) instrumentation and methodologies. Example of topics within the scope of this issue include; studies of the nanoelectronic and magnetic properties of materials, nanoscale dynamic mechanical properties of materials, single cell mechanics and mechanotransduction, integration of SPM with chemical characterization techniques, atomic manipulation, high resolution imaging of biological materials and engineered tissues, nanoscale tribology, friction, lubrication, wear, nanoscale adhesion, atomic force microscope-based nanoindentation, single molecule force spectroscopy, and spatially specific nanomechanics.

All manuscripts should be submitted to email@example.com with a copy to the Guest Editor. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
