As new materials with novel properties are developed through techniques such as 3D printing, their characterization with current methods become ever more challenging. Many of these properties depend on microstructural tuning at the micron, nano, and atomic scale. The need for higher spatial resolution, as well as of in operando measurements has led in recent years to the development of new and drastic improvements of synchrotron diffraction and imaging techniques. This issue is aimed at giving an overview of current state-of-the-art synchrotron characterization techniques used to study these materials, such as Bragg coherent diffraction imaging, ptychography, Laue nanodiffraction, and diffraction contrast tomography.

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. Quantum Beam Science 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.
