Special Issue "The Electrophysical Properties of Ceramic Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 October 2020.
Interests: perovskites; multiferroics; ceramic materials and ferroelectro–ferromagnetic composites; SEM tests; dielectric properties; ferroelectric properties
The main objective of this Special Issue is to publish outstanding papers presenting comprehensive research in the field of ceramic materials and ceramic composites for modern and functional applications.
The title of the Special Issue covers a wide range of topics in the field of ceramic materials: technology process of ceramic materials, new methods and techniques in ceramic technology process used in order to enhance structure, properties, and application of the ceramic materials, characterization of new multi-omponent ceramic materials, perovskite-type structures, multicomponent solid solutions, PZT-type materials, ferroic and multiferroic materials, lead-free materials, ceramic materials with functional properties, multiferroic ceramic composites, biomaterials, etc.
Comprehensive research includes, among others: modern measure techniques such as X-ray examinations, electron microscopy (SEM, TEM, AFM, STM, etc.), spectroscopy (EDX, XRD, XRF, XPS, etc.), dielectric tests, impedance spectroscopy, electromechanical tests, ferroelectric measurements, electrical conductivity tests, as well as magnetic and magnetoelectric properties, electromagnetic coupling, etc.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

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. 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 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.
