Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This is a Special Issue on the optical properties of ceramics and glasses.

The objective of this Special Issue is to learn about the latest developments in the optical properties of ceramic and glass materials.

Due to new technological demands, we must search for the novel properties of these types of materials. Additionally, the synthesis and processing of new materials with properties of interest are also of special relevance.

These materials will be used in new technological applications in the fields of renewable energy, the digitalization of industrial systems (industry 4.0) and artificial intelligence.

This Special Issue will publish high-quality, original research papers, in the overlapping fields of:

  • Ceramics;
  • Glasses;
  • Vitroceramics;
  • The synthesis and processing of materials;
  • Characterization techniques;
  • Optical properties;
  • Nanomaterials;
  • Thin layers;
  • Nonlinear optical properties;
  • Optoelectronic properties;
  • Photovoltaic materials.

Prof. Dr. Juan B. Carda Castelló
Guest Editor

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2300 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.
