Laboratory of Molecular Spectroscopy, L. V. Kirensky Institute of Physics, Federal Research Center KSC SB RAS, Academgorodok 50/38, Krasnoyarsk, 660036, Russia
Interests: Raman spectroscopy; ferroelectrics; high hydrostatic pressure; extreme condition; structural phase transition; multiferroics
Raman spectroscopy is now finding wide-ranging application in pure and applied science and can be used for the characterisation of the atomic structure of solids, because Raman scattering depends on the polarisation and direction of the incident light, the crystal symmetry and orientation of the solid sample, and the direction and polarisation of the scattered light. Raman spectroscopy can play a significant role in the study of crystal phase transformations, and it could involve order–disorder phenomena, polymorphs, chemical diffusion, and solid-solution shifts. One can study crystals in situ in extreme conditions—under high pressure, at high temperatures or both simultaneously, at low temperatures, or in electric or magnetic fields—and extract thermodynamic data from the variations in the Raman bands with varying pressure–temperature–field conditions. Other aspects that merit attention are the possibility of analysing nanocrystals, shocked crystals, crystalline microinclusions below the surface and many others.
The Special Issue on the “Raman Spectroscopy of Crystals” is devoted to theoretical and experimental, basic and applied research into all aspects utilising Raman spectroscopy to investigate processes in crystals and crystal properties. Scientists are encouraged to submit their manuscripts to this issue. The topics summarised in the keywords cover prime examples, but other related topics are also welcome. The volume is open for any contributions involving the Raman spectroscopy of crystalline matter.Dr. Alexander S. Krylov
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.
