Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the rapid development of electronic information technology, excessive electromagnetic radiation is produced by increasing the amount of electronic devices and information transmission. A considerable proportion of electromagnetic radiation disrupts the normal operation of electronic equipment. More importantly, long-term or large amounts of electromagnetic radiation will endanger human health. Particularly, with the development of high technology, the task of electromagnetic radiation control has become more complicated. Therefore, it is particularly urgent to understand the mechanisms of interaction between electromagnetic waves and materials, take effective control measures, and complete systematic analysis to successfully shield or absorb incident electromagnetic waves through the control of the reflection and loss ability of the electromagnetic shield/absorbing materials. Therefore, the material synthesis, component regulation, microstructure adjustment, and design of composite materials are the main measures through which to achieve the purpose of reflecting or absorbing an incident electromagnetic wave. These are also the main solutions with which to eliminate the effects of electromagnetic waves on electronic devices and to protect human health from electromagnetic radiation.

This Special Issue, titled “Electromagnetic Shielding/Absorbing Materials: Preparation, Characterization and Applications”, will focus on the preparation, characterization, and application of electromagnetic interference-shielding materials and electromagnetic wave-absorbing materials from the theoretical to the practical level. Papers submitted should cover the methods and mechanisms of electromagnetic shielding and microwave absorption control, including areas such as chemical synthesis, chemical vapor deposition, sintering, resin-based coating, thermal spraying, electroless plating, sol-gel, etc.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
