Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Contemporary comprehensive approaches to the development of novel functional and structural ceramics, composites, refractories and ultra-high-temperature materials (max phases), and high-entropy ceramics allow us to reach new frontiers in the competitive production and reliable operation of such materials, even in extreme environments.

Various functional ceramics and composites are of interest, e.g., different types and values of electrical conductivity (from dielectrics to superconductors), ferroelectrics, optically transparent and luminescent materials, and radiation-shielding composites. This fully applies to nanostructured ceramics, nanocomposites of complex compositions.

Especially important is the development of methods for manufacturing bulk products from these materials with individual shapes and complex geometry. For new technologies, it is necessary to use methods to model both 3D structures with complex chemical compositions and to model the processes of their consolidation from nano-, micro-scaled powders or their mixtures, with experimental verification of such models.

In this Special Issue of the journal Materials, we would like to present the most advanced results in these and related research areas.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2300 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.
