Special Issue "Recent Advances in Novel Topological Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2019).
Ever since the experimental discovery of the first 2D and 3D topological insulators, there have been intense emerging worldwide research activities in searching for and identifying new topological phases of condensed matter. Recent years have witnessed the laboratory-based realization of numerous novel topological materials, such as topological crystalline insulator, Weyl semimetals and new fermion matters. The interest in this topic arises from, not only the realization of exotic theoretical concepts in fundamental physics, but also the promise of device applications, which can potentially revolutionize the entire Si-based electronics industry.
This Special Issue on “Recent Advances in Novel Topological Materials” is intended to provide a unique and timely forum aimed at covering a broad description of novel topological matters. Scientists working in this fast-developing field are invited to contribute to this cause.
The topics summarized under the keywords broadly cover examples of the great number of sub-topics in mind. The volume is especially open for any innovative contributions involving theoretical prediction, crystal growth and experimental characterizations of new topological materials.

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.
