Special Issue Information
Metal oxides (MOs) constitute one of the most interesting and promising materials thanks to their diversified crystal structures and various physical properties. Many unique phenomena, for example, high-temperature superconductivity (HTSC) or colossal magnetoresistance (CMR), were first discovered in MOs.
Among the wide variety of MOs systems, specific families, such as transition metal oxides, can be distinguished. Metal oxides can also be classified by structural type. For example, extensive research is devoted to compounds with a perovskite-type structure. This issue aims to bring together papers on specific metal oxide compounds and reviews of various MOs families and structural types.
A great challenge in solid state physics is to obtain novel MOs and investigate their structure and properties. Papers related to the synthesis and study of novel MOs are very welcome and strongly encouraged.
MO single crystal growth is of particular interest. A specific feature of the multicomponent MO single crystals grown by different techniques is that many of them demonstrate a strong deviation from stoichiometry due to cationic or oxygen vacancies and compositional inhomogeneity along the growth direction. The study of defects in MOs and their influence on the properties of the studied compounds is one of the topics of this issue.
Both reviews and original research articles on MOs are also welcome. We are looking forward to your contributions to this Special Issue!

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 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.
