Special Issue in Applied Sciences: The Quest for Novel Thermoelectric Materials
This Collection aims to promote international exchange and to share the latest knowledge and developments in both experimental and fundamental aspects in order to gain a deeper understanding on the relationship between the underlying structural order and the resulting physical properties in quasicrystals and their related approximant phases. The capability of exploiting aperiodic order in the design of novel devices based on dielectric multilayers or semiconductor heterostructures is also addressed. Interdisciplinary approaches encompassing the notion of quasiperiodic order in mineralogy, quantum chemistry and bio-inspired systems of current interest will be considered as well.

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.
