Special Issue "Piezoelectric Materials and Devices"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2019).
Interests: static and dynamic stability of thin walled structures; piezoelectric materials; laminated composite structures; dynamic buckling of thin walled structures; multifunctional materials; technologies and structures; smart structures technologies; structural mechanics and energy harvesting using piezoelectric and pyroelectric materials
This Special Issue, entitled "Piezoelectric Materials and Devices", is motivated by the growing interest in developing novel and advanced piezoelectric materials and piezoelectric-based devices by various worldwide research groups and industries.
This would include energy harvesting using both piezoelectric and hybrid devices (especially for low but also for medium range frequencies), flexible and stretchable piezoelectric harvesters, sensors and actuators, inorganic, organic and composite piezoelectric materials, porous piezoelectric materials and their applications, MEMS-based piezoelectric energy harvesters, PZT nanotubes, nanorods , nanowires and nanofibers for MEMS devices, advances in piezoelectric polymers and piezocomposites, voided charged polymers including comparative studies on piezoelectric polymers and their relevant application as sensors and actuators, Lead free piezoelectric materials and their achieved properties in various devices, piezoelectric biosensors-principles and their applications, advances in piezoelectric motors, wearable piezoelectric sensors and actuators, piezoelectric based flying wings/morphing structures and precision piezoelectric fuel injectors in propulsion systems for micro aerial vehicles (MAVs), piezoelectric application in the medical sector (like high frequency image generation, ultrasonic transducers and implantable biomechanical energy piezoelectric harvesters), and any other advanced research and applications using the piezoelectric phenomenon.
Overall, this Special Issue is orientated to all the above-cited research topics and other related research on piezoelectric materials and piezoelectric-based advanced devices.
Considering your outstanding contribution in this interesting research field, I would like to cordially invite you to submit a paper to this Special Issue.

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.
