Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

Coatings (ISSN 2079-6412) runs a collection of the Feature Paper of Topic Editors papers. The aim is to collect the publication and discussion of research articles, reviews, letters, and communications on all aspects of the science and engineering of coatings, thin and thick films, surfaces, and interfaces.

We kindly welcome the the editorial office, the topic editors, and the editorial board members by inviting them to contribute reviews and outstanding articles for this Feature Paper Collection to develop the current knowledge on functional, protective and decorative coatings, coatings, thin and thick films, surfaces, and interfaces.

The collection covers coatings, surfaces, and interfaces in the broader sense. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Functional, protective and decorative coatings
  • Thin and thick films
  • Film materials for packaging
  • Dyes, pigments and their intermediates
  • Characterization techniques
  • Processes for coating deposition and modification
  • Coatings for high temperature
  • Wear, corrosion, erosion
  • Applied surface science
  • Film materials for packaging
  • Adsorption, adhesion, functionalization
  • High surface area systems: colloids, nanoparticles, large interfaces
  • Fundamental and functional properties of surface and interfaces

Dr. Fengwei (David) Xie
Collection Editor
