Special Issue "High-Power Microwave and Plasma Interactions"
A special issue of Plasma (ISSN 2571-6182).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2019).
Interests: non-stationary plasma; high-power ion/electron beams; electrical explosion of wires and wires array; strong shock waves; high-power microwaves
During the last decade, there have been many advances and achievements in the generation of High-Power Microwaves (HPM) in relativistic magnetrons, backward oscillators, magnetically insulated transmission line oscillators, non-linear transmission lines and microwave compressors. The efficiency of operation of most of these devices is governed by high-current electron beams generated by explosive emission plasma cathodes and by plasma formation and evolution in slow wave structures. In addition, such high-power microwave beams open up new avenues in the field of HPM interactions with different mediums.
For this Special Issue of Plasma, researchers active in all aspects of the field of high power microwaves and plasma interactions are invited to submit their latest results. Papers covering fundamental studies, as well as papers discussing applications, are welcome.

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. Plasma is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
