Special Issue in Materials: Mechanical Performance and Microstructural Characterization of Light Alloys
Special Issue Information
Light alloys such as aluminum and magnesium are important materials for the automobile, aircraft, and electronic industries. In recent decades, fruitful studies have reported the microstructure characteristics, mechanical properties, and advantages of light alloys and accelerated the progress in the field. However, there are still many unproven theories and unsolved problems in light alloys. Thus, to further trigger the development of light alloys, it is imperative to research the relationship between microstructure characteristics and mechanical properties more in depth. It is for this reason that we are launching the present Special Issue on “Precipitation and Characterization of Light Alloys”. This Special Issue shall collect outstanding research on light alloys around the world, including but not limited to heat treatment, plastic processing, microstructure characterization, mechanical properties, precipitation, phase transformation, magnesium, aluminum, titanium, shape memory alloy, SEM, EBSD, FIB, TEM, and in situ X-ray.
It is our pleasure to welcome you to submit your work to this Special Issue on “Precipitation and Characterization of Light Alloys” in the journal of Metals.

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. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
