Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Amorphous alloys, as a kind of material without long-range ordered atomic configuration, have attracted intensive interests in the last several decades because of their outstanding physical, chemical and mechanical properties. The development of new amorphous alloy systems and the investigation of their unique properties are still at the cutting edge of metastable metallic alloys and condensed matter physics because of the potential merits in both the fundamental studies and commercial application perspectives in military, aerospace, biomedicine, sporting goods, electric power industry, and so on.

This Special Issue aims to present the latest advances in amorphous alloys, including the glass-forming ability; mechanical, physical and chemical properties of the metallic glasses; microstructure and its relationship to the properties; deformation behavior and the mechanism involved; application of amorphous structural/functional materials; and other related items of the amorphous alloys. Based on your scientific reputation and research interests, I am pleased to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Articles, reviews and communications are all welcome.

Prof. Dr. Lei Xia
Guest Editor

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.
