Special Issue "Elasticity and Micro- and Macro- Plasticity of Crystals"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 November 2019.
Studies of elasticity, plasticity, and strength of crystalline materials are among the oldest areas of science. In previous times, these properties and their relationship with the crystal structure were the focus of research; in recent years, much attention has been paid to the study of new construction and functional materials with special properties (nanostructured materials, materials with shape memory, semiconductors and superconductors, optical crystals, etc.) or materials that operate in special conditions (low and high temperatures, radiation, magnetic and electric fields, etc.). Knowledge of elastic and plastic characteristics is necessary for the development of technologies for the fabrication novel materials. For example, crystal growth processes may be effective if we can control thermal stresses and their relaxation. The fracture characteristics and methods of development of crystalline materials hardening are also very important.
We invite researchers to submit papers to this Special Issue “Elasticity and Micro- and Macro-Plasticity” of Crystals. Articles on a wide range of studies of elastic and plastic properties of crystalline materials will be collected, as well as variations of these properties under various impacts.

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 1400 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.
