Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Metamaterials are artificially engineered composites with unusual effective material parameters and exceptional functionalities that directly result from their microarchitecture. Over the past decade, metamaterials have been applied in various physical fields, including optics, acoustics, materials science, mechanics, and plasmonics, and enabled fascinating phenomena, like invisibility cloaking, beam steering, programmable behaviors, topological insulators, and metalens imaging. Today, metamaterials are receiving increasing attention from the academic and engineering communities due to their extraordinary or extreme electromagnetic, elastic, thermal, structural, mechanical, and dynamic properties, which are in high demand for many applications, e.g., energy harvesting, sensors, noise reduction and acoustic nondestructive testing, biomedicine, medical ultrasound imaging, the automotive industry, aerospace, communication, and signal processing. The recent development of metamaterials has strongly benefitted from rapid progress in computational techniques and manufacturing technologies. This has enabled more powerful approaches to the rational design and advanced fabrication of metamaterials, leading to an explosive growth of research on their design, simulation, fabrication, and characterization. Accordingly, this Special Issue seeks to showcase research papers and review articles that focus on state-of-the-art methodologies, designs, fabrication approaches, and applications of various metamaterials.

We look forward to receiving your submissions.

Dr. Jin-Chen Hsu

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Micromachines 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.
