Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Mechanical tests followed by microstructural investigations bring valuable information for understanding the mechanical performance of materials. Electron microscopy is one of the most important techniques for analyzing deformation microstructures. Two kinds of electron microscopes bring complementary information: at the macro/meso-scopic scale, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and at micro/nano-scale, transmission electron microscopy (TEM).

Following the breakthroughs in materials science, the constant improvement of electron microscopy techniques tend to make them essential for bringing valuable information to understand the mechanical behavior of materials. This Special Issue aims to report some of the significant progress in the field of electron microscopy. Articles will cover major aspects of materials science: the development of revolutionary electron microscopy techniques, fundamental physical phenomena and of course their applications in materials science.

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 1800 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.
