Special Issue "Advances in Coatings Characterization"
A special issue of Coatings (ISSN 2079-6412).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2017)
It is my pleasure to introduce this new Special Issue of Coatings, “Advances in Coatings Characterization”. The evolution of coatings technology calls for new and efficient characterization techniques, capable of producing information with a nanoscale resolution. This Special Issue provides a privileged platform to publish original research articles that focus on the most recent findings in the field. Contributions on characterization at the nanoscale are particularly welcome. Prominent scholars are invited to contribute review articles that summarize the status of the topic, and provide a vision for the future. We are looking forward to receiving your contributions.
Prof. Dr. Massimo Innocenti
