Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As a monatomic layer of carbon atoms in a honeycomb lattice, graphene possesses extraordinary mechanical properties in addition to other amazing properties. The mechanical properties are of extreme importance for several potential applications, including the tailoring of other properties using strain engineering. In this Special Issue, we will focus on cutting-edge studies of graphene mechanics from both theoretical and experimental investigations. In particular, this collection covers current areas of research that are concerned with the effect of production methods and/or the presence of defects upon the mechanical integrity of graphene, work related to the effect of graphene deformation upon its electronic properties and the possibility of employing strained graphene in future electronic applications, as well as reviews of experimental and theoretical results, to date, on mechanical loading of freely suspended or fully supported graphene.

This Special Issue on graphene mechanics aims to provide a unique and international forum covering a broad range of findings involving mechanical properties, mechanical loading, and engineering and applications. Scientists working from various disciplines are invited to contribute to this cause.

The topics summarized in the keywords broadly cover examples of the great number of subtopics in mind. The volume is especially open to any innovative contributions involving mechanics aspects of the topics and/or subtopics.

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 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 2000 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.
