Special Issue "Intermetallics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2015).
2 Atomic Energy Authority, Abingdon, Oxfordshire, OX14 3DB, UK
Interests: advanced materials for nuclear applications; phase stability and transformations in alloys; first-principles prediction of intermetallics; multi-scale modelling of materials; magnetic behaviour of iron-based steels; thermal-mechanical properties of materials under irradiation; electronic structure and chemical bonding of nano-materials; high-entropy alloys
This Special Issue aims to promote international exchange and to share the latest knowledge and developments in all fundamental aspects of intermetallic-based materials encompassing characterization, testing, modelling and technological application. Emphasis is placed on innovative approaches and advanced overviews to understand complex relationship between the structure and functionality of new materials with improved properties. Of specific interest are the modelling methodologies in all scales based on first-principles, linking theoretical understanding with experimental observations. The topics include, but are not limited to, the thermodynamic, defect, magnetic, and mechanical properties of complex intermetallics including high-entropy alloys used for structural applications, etc.

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 papers will be 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 1800 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.
