Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

 In this Special Issue, research articles and reviews on the topics listed below are welcome:

  • Ferroelectric, piezoelectric, and dielectric crystals and ceramics;
  • Understanding the correlation between structure and properties;
  • The characterization of various piezoelectric parameters, in particular, high-power piezoelectric properties;
  • The material processing design of lead-free and lead-based piezoelectric ceramics and crystals.

This Special Issue aims to focus on understanding the correlation between structure and property in these materials, as well as the characterization of various piezoelectric parameters. Additionally, the cutting-edge processing design of ceramics and crystals, with a specific emphasis on high-power piezoelectric properties, piezoelectric energy harvesting, and energy storage materials, are the main themes. The main goal of this Special Issue is to assemble a comprehensive collection of research papers that delve into the latest developments in the fields of ferroelectric, piezoelectric, and dielectric ceramics and crystals.

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.
