Special Issue in Coatings: Development of Nano- and Micro-Coatings
In recent decades, metals and new alloys with modified surface properties have experienced steady development. These new materials are designed to be used both in various industry branches, as well as in biomedical applications. The point is that modified mechanical, electrochemical, and antibacterial properties may be improved thanks to different changes introduced to the surface layer of metals and alloys. The new surface technology engineering covers modifications and improvements introduced by laser treatments, chemical and electrochemical polishing, magnetoelectropolishing, passivation, anodic oxidation, electrophoretic deposition, ion implantation, plasma electrolytic oxidation, chemical or physical vapor deposition, as well as by sol-gel processing. Nowadays, designing of materials properties is one of the top science domains, allowing for predicting the behavior of material under extreme environmental conditions. Special attention to surface quality is of importance prior to their production. This Special Issue is aimed to be focused on new achievements and directed to everyone interested in widely understood surface engineering of metals and alloys. The theme is interdisciplinary, thus I invite you to submit original research and review articles, as well as short communications, related to both experimental and theoretical studies.

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.
