Special Issue "In Situ X-Ray Diffraction on Metals and Alloys"
A special issue of Metals (ISSN 2075-4701).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2019)
Dr. Guillaume Geandier
With new-generation diffractometers, detectors and synchrotron sources, it is time to focus our research on metals and alloys developed with in situ X-rays methods.
The aim is to describe several kinds of results using original devices that have been developed in laboratories or specially designed for synchrotron beamlines. Results will form a large part of this Special Issue, but some focus is needed on the specificities of the sample environment due to the specificities of the metallic samples and their interaction with X-rays (high absorption, fast or low kinetics of the studied phenomena, etc.) and also the work to be done with the data. In situ analysis means a lot of data to analyze with several constraints (large volume, synchronization of signals, evolution of the sample, multiple analysis, statistics, …)
The main idea of this particular issue is to show the impressive results that can be obtained using in situ X-rays; the work that needs to be done to design (or even use) a sample environment adapted to metals and alloys analysis; the time and work required for data extracted from the complete device.

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.
