Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Transparent ceramics have played important roles in solid-state laser fields in the past two decades. The development of novel ceramic materials is important for the promotion of next-generation optical technology. Even now, new laser ceramics such as mid-infrared laser materials, noncubic laser materials, and new magneto-optic materials with high Verde constants are widely studied.

This Special Issue invites a wide range of research on synthesis methods and optical properties of new ceramic materials that are useful for the development of next-generation laser sources. For example, the following topics are included:

  • Composite, large aperture, fine-grained transparent ceramic materials for high-average power, high-intense laser sources;
  • New magneto-optic materials with high Verdet constant, high thermal conductivity;
  • Ceramic materials that pioneer new wavelength for visible to mid-infrared wavelength range;
  • Bonding technology of transparent ceramics with high thermal conductive optics;
  • Noncubic laser ceramics with fine microstructure or magnetic field oriented crystal grains;
  • High power ceramic laser systems and their characteristics

Research specialized in the manufacturing process, material properties, or laser characteristics, and so on for novel ceramics materials is also 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.
