Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As a flexible and fast general technology, non-destructive testing and evaluation (NDT&E) technology has been widely used for the characterization of the performances of products, such as solar cells and composites materials. Recent innovations have been driven by advanced sensing, signal processing methods, materials, artificial intelligence, and various applications. The ability to non-invasively assess the internal characteristics, defects, and properties of materials is not only crucial for ensuring the safety, reliability, and good performance of critical infrastructure and industrial components but also holds promise for advancing fundamental research and innovation across diverse disciplines.

The primary aim of this Special Issue is to showcase the latest advancements in, methodologies related to, and applications of non-destructive evaluation techniques. Our goal is to foster interdisciplinary dialogue, facilitate knowledge exchange, and inspire collaborative endeavors that push the boundaries of what is achievable through non-destructive evaluation methods.

We invite you to submit original research papers, as well as review papers, within the scope of this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Crystals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2100 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.
