Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Plasma technologies are fundamental for numerous cutting-edge industries. Low-temperature plasma (LTP) represents highly non-equilibrium systems seeded by the energy deposited in a low-temperature gas from its interaction with free electrons under the influence of an external electric field. Such conditions enable the precise manipulation of temperature-sensitive materials at the atomic and molecular levels. Thus, LTPs have emerged as a versatile and interdisciplinary area of research with applications across various fields such as physics, chemistry, materials science, and engineering.

This Special Issue, ‘Advancements in Low-Temperature Plasmas', aims to explore the latest developments and breakthroughs in the generation, characterization, and applications of LTPs, and invites researchers, scientists, and engineers to share their cutting-edge research findings, methodologies, and practical applications in this dynamic field. Potential topics include, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Physical models for electrons;
  • Swarm parameters and new data;
  • Collisions cross sections;
  • Multi-temperature models;
  • Solving the electronic Boltzmann equation;
  • Fluid models describing LTP;
  • Optical emissions in LT;
  • Technological applications of LTP;
  • Numerical strategies for modeling LTP;
  • Plasmo-chemical models;

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 2400 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.
