Special Issue in Fibers: Carbon Fiber Reinforced Composites
Carbon fiber is one of the strongest and most lightweight materials available on the market today. Because of these excellent properties, carbon fiber-based composites are often used in aerospace and aviation, automobile, civil engineering, military, sports car, and other competitive sport materials manufacturing applications. However, limitations, like their higher price and recyclability, are still to be resolved for the expansion of potential applications of such composites. Ongoing extensive research on carbon fiber-based composites, thus, plays a key role in the continuous development for newer applications.
This Special Issue is intended to highlight a number of high-quality up-to-date research contributions on carbon fiber-reinforced polymer composites. The topics of the Special Issue include but are not limited to: Different types of carbon fibers reinforced composites, composite processing and characterizations, structure–properties relationship, and current challenges in the field of composites and their future applications.
It is my great pleasure to invite you to submit a paper (full papers, communications, feature articles, and reviews) to the Special Issue, "Carbon Fiber Reinforced Composites". This Special Issue will cover the latest experimental, theoretical, and computational research approaches on this important topic, and I look forward to receiving your submissions.

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. Fibers 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 1600 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.
