Special Issue Information
Laser additive manufacturing technologies such as laser powder bed fusion and directed energy deposition are new disruptive technologies for the production of complex-shaped and lightweight metallic components. This is due to the revolution in design approach that additive manufacturing technologies allows. Notwithstanding this, there are still several limitations in suitable metallic alloys. The actual challenges are focused on the development of new compositions and the study of alloys or metal matrix composites for additive manufacturing technologies. Defining innovative compositions, the right window for the main process parameters of additive manufacturing technologies, and the thermal treatment conditions can contribute to the obtainment of additively manufactured metals with interesting mechanical performance.
This Special Issue aims to present the latest research works related to the study of metallic alloys and metal matrix composites processed through laser additive manufacturing technologies, from feedstock preparation to process parameter definition and thermal treatment optimization, focusing the attention on microstructural and mechanical characteristics of the processed materials. Reviews focused on innovations on metals and related composites for laser additive manufacturing are also welcome.

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 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.
