Special Issue "Advanced High-Entropy Materials and Coatings"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 May 2024 | Viewed by 8837
The “high-entropy” design concept originating from multi-principal-element solid solutions has attracted intense interest from academia and industries worldwide. Recently, significant progress in the metal community has led to the development of various other types of high-entropy materials (HEMs), such as high-entropy metallic glasses, high-entropy ceramics, high-entropy thermoelectric materials, etc. The various HEMs that act as coatings have shown great potential for structural and functional applications based on their stability, corrosion resistance, and excellent mechanical properties. Different technologies have been adopted to fabricate HEM coatings, including sputtering, electrodeposition, spraying, laser cladding, plasma-transferred arc cladding, etc.
We are pleased to invite you to submit your work to this Special Issue on “Advanced High-Entropy Materials and Coatings”. This Special Issue aims to present theoretical and experimental articles addressing the current understandings, new development, and challenges on the synthesis of HEM coatings, studies of properties, as well as potential applications.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but not limited to) the following:
- Coating technologies;
- Composition design;
- Surface characterization;
- Thermal stability;
- Hardening and strengthening;
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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. 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.
