Special Issue "Metamaterials and Devices"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2020.
Interests: mechanical metamaterials; nanomaterials theory and computation; surface phenomena in materials systems
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The purpose of this Special Issue is to highlight recent advances in metamaterials and devices, engineered material systems with dramatically enhanced physical properties, or properties nonexistent in natural materials. Examples include negative elastic moduli, negative thermal expansion, multistability transitions and polymorphism, symmetry breaking, control and localization of vibration and deformation energy, and frequency dependent electromagnetic, acoustic and mechanical properties.
This Special Issue covers all aspects of metamaterials research with an emphasis on understanding the role of structural hierarchy and basic physical phenomena that determine metamaterials functionality; generic analysis approaches leading to phase and stability diagrams mapping, novel design tools and manufacturing methods, and numerical modelling methods.Prof. Eduard Karpov
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.
