Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the present technology-driven century, there is a quest for novel materials with enhanced properties that are tailored for a range of applications. The ability of materials to react to their environment in a useful manner, responding to different external stimuli, facilitates their integration into different devices; this may have a strong technological impact.

Electroceramics are advanced ceramic materials that are employed in a wide variety of electrical, optical and magnetic applications, with their study being a persistent endeavour in the development of functional materials.

In recent decades, the electrification of vehicles, the application of renewable energy sources and the promotion of decarbonization have led to a proliferating demand for energy conversion and storage devices. In addition, due to the rapid growth of wireless communication systems and microwave products in the electronic market, small, lightweight and multifunctional components are required.

Since the close relationship between structure, morphology and physical properties is well established, understanding the formation mechanisms from both theoretical and experimental perspectives is essential in order to improve the synthesis processes of enhanced functional materials. Therefore, the design, fabrication and characterization of electroceramic components are multidisciplinary in nature.

This Special Issue aims to address all the relevant aspects of advanced electroceramics for energy conversion, storage and devices, attending also to the different processing and characterization techniques.

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. Crystals 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.
