This Feature Paper Collection welcomes scientific articles that improve the current knowledge on functional coatings, thin and thick films, surfaces and interfaces. Manuscripts for this important Feature Paper Collection of Coatings will be accepted by the editorial office, the Topic Editor, and Editorial Board Members by invitation only.

The collection covers coatings, surfaces, and interfaces in the broader sense. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Thin and thick films
  • Fundamental and functional properties of surface and interfaces
  • Applied surface science
  • Coatings for high temperature
  • Fundamental and functional properties of surface and interfaces
  • Mechanical coating/alloying/treatment of the metals
  • Heat/Thermo/chemical treatment of the metals
  • Nonconventional treatment applied to metals, such as thermo/mechanical coating, including removing of the heavy metals from industrial waste, electrochemical machining, abrasive flow machining, shot blasting, shot peening, turbo-abrasive machining, centrifugal barreling finish, centrifugal isotropic finishing, etc.
  • Biomaterials coatings applied, but not limited, to Ti-based alloys, CoCr alloys, and stainless steels
