Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) use solid, ceramic materials to effectively achieve high efficiency without the requirement of costly metals. A single unit consists of cathode, electrolyte, anode, and their interconnections, whereby the electrolyte can be oxygen ion-conducting or proton-conducting. SOFCs are more fuel-flexible compared to other types of fuel cells and tolerate some impurities from fossil fuels, such as natural gas. They are promising for use in a variety of stationary power applications and auxiliary power units for heavy-duty trucks.
For this Special Issue, we are seeking submissions of research on the topics of new synthesis, structures, and characterization of electrolytes, electrodes, and catalysts. Submissions focused on new concepts regarding cell/stack design and theoretical calculations are also of interest, as are those dealing with any other topic that falls within the theme of the Special Issue.

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.
