Special Issue Information
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to the forthcoming Special Issue: ‘’Surfaces of Metals and Alloys – Phenomena, Processes, and their Characterization’’.
For decades, the study of metal and alloy surfaces was of interest due to basic as well as practical/commercial reasons. Basic physical and chemical aspects, like strain and stress, reconstruction, segregation, diffusion, chemisorption and physisorption, electronic properties, and thermodynamics, as well as practical/commercial aspects, such as modification and catalysis, were characterized and studied by various experimental (XPS, AES, ISS, DRS, STM, FTIR, and more) simulations and modeling. Some of the experimental methods are sensitive only to the outermost surface (ISS and DRS, for example) and some are also sensitive to the subsurface (XPS and AES, for example), so combinations of methods enable a distinction between surface and subsurface processes.
This Special Issue aims to present the latest developments in this research area, including all the topics mentioned above, as well as other and new ones.
Research articles, review articles, and communications are invited.
Should you need any further information about this Special Issue, please do not hesitate to contact me.

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.
