The Special Issue, "Micro-/Nano-Mechanics: From Theory to Application", focuses on the newest technologies in micro-/nano-mechanics for the experimental measurement and theoretical calculation of, not only mechanical properties, but also electrical and thermal properties. In addition, applications focused on the following topics will be considered for inclusion: micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), nano-electromechanical systems (NEMS), microsensors, smart devices, and electronic devices. The continued growth and challenge of science technologies in all industrial fields fundamentally support life through energy saving, the improvement of global environments, and securing safety. Particularly, the dominating general properties of any devices and materials, micro-/nano-mechanics, and material characteristics fascinate us. Original papers are solicited in order to aid and promote our understanding of these subjects. We are especially interested in, but are not limited to, the following topics: mechanical properties, thermal properties, electric properties, experimental method, testing, MEMS/NEMS devices, and related functional materials. Articles and reviews dealing with the above keywords are very 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 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.
