Microwave technology is an energy saving futuristic technology applicable to many diverse fields and a variety of materials. It has emerged predominantly in several fields of Materials Science and Technology due to its manifold characteristic advantages (fast reaction rates and reduced processing temperatures) over conventional techniques. The heating of a sample being volumetric and fast, the MW processing modifies the structure and microstructure (e.g. size of nanoparticles) and can thus tailor the materials to obtain desired properties. Accordingly, this Special Issue aims to publish papers in the area of microwave energy applications related to techniques (such as single mode, multimode); materials (metals, polymers, ceramics, dielectric, magnetic, bioceramics, composites, bulk and thin films); and applications (such as metal production, sintering, waste processing, etc.).

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. 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. Technologies is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
