Special Issue "Advances in Ceramic Coatings"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2021) | Viewed by 6068
We would like to invite you to submit your work to this Special Issue on "Advances in Ceramic Coatings". Ceramic coatings cover a wide variety of research fields: electronics, catalytic chemistry, energy engineering, tribology, foundry, etc. Ceramic coatings are able to add desirable functions or modify properties without changing the base materials thanks to their unique capabilities. They are attracting increased attention because thin films show significantly different characteristics from bulk material. Fabrication methods and combinations of materials are also important factors that determine the quality of coatings. The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight some of the most recent and most significant contributions to the ceramic coatings field, through a combination of original research papers and review articles from leading groups around the world.
In particular, the topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Ceramic coatings for severe environmental conditions
- Ceramic coatings for corrosion protection
- Ceramic coatings for nuclear applications
- Ceramic coatings as hydrogen permeation barriers
- Novel techniques of ceramic coating fabrication
