We would like to invite you to submit your work to our Special Issue entitled "Advances in Deposition and Surface Modification of Oxide Thin Films and Nanocoatings".
Ultrathin films and nanocoatings are 2D nanostructures with thicknesses of less than 100 nm. Scientific interest in obtaining and studying such nanostructures increased remarkably in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. However, despite the vast amount of research conducted in this area nowadays, interest in the study of nanocoatings has not decreased. This is due to great advances in the study of nanocoatings and their wide range of applications. Oxide nanocoatings are one of the most common but useful and promising types of coatings. Due to their variety of chemical and physical properties, they are widely used in energy storage, medicine, electronics, catalysis, corrosion protection, optics, sensors, photovoltaics, etc. Such a wide variety of applications requires a significant number of modern techniques for obtaining thin films and nanocoatings, as well as approaches to modifying and studying them.
This Special Issue aims to summarize novel research on the synthesis and deposition of oxide thin films and nanocoatings, surface modifications and their functional properties. Theoretical and experimental articles and reviews are welcome for submission to this Special Issue.
In particular, the topic of interest includes but is not limited to:
- Advances in the synthesis and deposition of oxide nanocoatings;
- Surface treatment and modification;
- New methods and approaches to the study of nanocoatings;
- Study of the functional properties of nanocoatings;
- Application of oxide thin films and nanocoatings.

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. Coatings 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 2600 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.
