Special Issue "Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation"
A special issue of Metals (ISSN 2075-4701).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2018

Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO), also known as Micro Arc Oxidation, is used to obtain porous coatings on metals such as aluminum, magnesium, titanium, tantalum, niobium, and their alloys. The first works on electrolyte discharge phenomena are dated as early as 1880, and the practical use of oxidation of aluminum by PEO started in 1970. These two dates should be recognized as the beginning of the Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation age. Afterwards, that technology was patented and introduced to industrial applications in the 1980s. Most important is that PEO coatings formed on metals and alloys may be enriched using selected elements, originating from the electrolytes used. The chemical and phase compositions, as well as porosity and the thickness of the PEO coating depend on the values of the DC and AC voltages used for that treatment. The expected applications of PEO coatings can be found in aerospace and space industries, as well as in the production of biomaterials and automotive catalytic converters. Investigations into PEO processing and the physical–chemical and mechanical properties of these porous coatings are the objective of this Special Issue.
A Special Issue, titled “Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation”, is expected to be prepared and edited in 2018. As a Guest Editor of this Special Issue, I invite you to submit a paper, which will be peer reviewed to be accepted for publication in Metals. The manuscripts are expected by the end of 2017, with a deadline in the beginning of 2018.

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. Metals 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.
