Special Issue "Advances in Intermetallic and Metal-Like Compounds"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 December 2023 | Viewed by 5642
Intermetallics present a very wide range of compounds composed of metals, metalloids and, optionally, non-metallic elements. These materials host a variety of interesting phenomena with examples of superconductivity, strongly correlated electrons, quantum criticality, bulk magnetism, topology, exceptional thermoelectric properties or a combination of several of them. With the progress in synthetic methods and development of novel advanced characterization tools, the community has started to explore and appreciate the diversity and complexity of intermetallics and metal-like compounds as well as tunability of their properties through pressure/stress, the magnetic field, and chemical substitution. All these characteristics make the synthesis and studies of intermetallics a fertile research field for condensed matter physicists and solid-state chemists interested in basic science and applications.
We invite researchers to contribute to this Special Issue on “Advances in Intermetallic and Metal-Like Compounds”, which is intended to cover broad aspects of synthesis, properties, and application of intermetallic and metal-like compounds.
Potential topics include but are not limited to:
- Advances in synthesis of intermetallics;
- Novel materials and physical properties, including topological aspects;
- Electronic structure via quantum oscillations and ARPES;
- Heavy fermions, quantum criticality, and quantum phase transitions;
- Superconductivity and its competition with other quantum states;
- Local moment and itinerant magnetism;
- Path to applications.

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.
- crystal growth of intermetallics
- electrical and thermal transport
- strongly correlated systems
The below list represents only planned manuscripts. Some of these manuscripts have not been received by the Editorial Office yet. Papers submitted to MDPI journals are subject to peer-review.
