Special Issue "High-Pressure Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2020.
This Special Issue on “High-Pressure Materials” will focus on high pressure effects on the structural and electronic properties of matter.
Advances in high pressure experimental and computational techniques now allow discovering and exploring new regimes in the material phase space. In recent years, using high pressure methods, many new states of matter have been observed in laboratory and many more have been predicted theoretically and have been confirmed experimentally. Dynamic and static methods are reaching regimes in which compressions exceed those within planetary cores and pressure and temperature conditions that complement what might naturally occur.
Pressure changes the fundamental interactions at the electron level, therefore, application of high pressure is a powerful tool for altering the chemical character of materials. The change in chemical reactivity and nature of chemical bonds can not only alter the band and crystal structure and basic electronic properties, but also can lead to the emergence of a variety of interesting quantum states. These include topological states, unconventional superconducting states and formation of electrides. The time evolution and dynamics of phase transitions is another research area with much potential.
This Special Issue will explore the forefront of high pressure research theory and experiments to gain an in-depth insight into the fundamental interactions in materials and explore new possibilities in condensed matter.

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.
