Special Issue "Microstructure Characterization of Materials: In Situ TEM Investigation"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 August 2023) | Viewed by 2557
Interests: in situ TEM; transmission electron microscopy; microstructure characterization; smart materials; magnetic domain imaging; Lotentz microscopy; photocatalysis; catalytic materials
One picture means more than a thousand words. Undoubtedly, this is one of the slogans that guide researchers specializing in dynamic imaging experiments. There is no doubt, however, that despite the passage of years, in situ electron microscopy remains an exceptionally demanding technique. The experiments carried out with it allow pushing the boundaries of knowledge but often require significant interference in the microscope or the use of dedicated, prototype devices. Changing the sample temperature, interaction with a magnetic or electric field, mechanical, light, or accelerated particle influence, chemical experiments in liquids and gases, electron beam-driven reactions—despite the wide possibilities, the pool of available experiments remains open and limited only by the creativity of researchers.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews in the field of in situ electron microscopy are all welcome. We are interested in both research carried out with the use of commercial systems and your prototype designs, not limited to only TEM or SEM. If you want to propose or consult an article before preparing your work, the editorial board is at your disposal.

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 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 2600 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.
