This Special Issue invites most recent and novel approaches in the area of nanostructured materials, where our focus is, in particular, on metal and metal-oxide films. Nanostructured materials achieve on a nanoscale that cannot be achieved through macroscale structuring and design, while directly affecting the macroscale. Novel approaches of nanostructured materials related to fabrication, characterization methods, properties, underlying physics, numerical investigations or new applications are of interest to this Special Issue creating a platform for discussion and new thoughts in this important area. Metal and metal-oxide film deposition is of interest and applied across industries. Examples of active scientific work are thin-film metamaterials with unique properties, coatings with superior protecting properties, new sensing materials, or advanced multilayers, to name a few. Hence, we are inviting authors to reporting and discussing their newest findings in material science, engineering, biological and medical sciences, and physics.

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. 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 1500 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.
