Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) are one of the most efficient fuel cell devices and expected as a promising energy converter in households. Control of micro-/nanostructures in the electrodes is a key technology to increase the efficiency to the ideal one. There are many unknown micro-/nanoscale mechanisms in the fabrication operation process. This Special Issue covers micro-/nanostructures in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC). A wide range of research fields, such as the controlling method of micro-/nanostructures, but also analyses, modeling, and durability evaluation at micro-/nanoscale, are welcome.

It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to this Special Issue, including full papers, communications, and reviews.

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.
