Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Among laboratory and astrophysical plasmas, many are subject to magnetic fields. In these so-called magnetized plasmas, magnetic fields affect the plasma constituents in a number of ways: Motion of charged particles and internal atomic structure of neutrals and ions. From the spectroscopic point of view, the presence of a magnetic field in a plasma can have different signatures on the emission line spectra depending on its strength and on the plasma conditions. This Special Issue is intended to regroup all kinds of spectroscopic techniques based on static or transient magnetic fields in magnetized plasmas and the associated progresses made in the recent years. It concerns magnetic fusion and all other magnetized plasmas such as astrophysical plasmas and high-density laser-produced ones and encompasses passive, active and plasma polarization spectroscopy. Original papers on Stark-Zeeman line broadening, Zeeman effect, motional Stark effect and related topics within the scope of Atoms are welcome.

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. Atoms is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 350 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.
