Advancements in Thin Films and Tailored Surfaces: Breaking Barriers in Sensing and Biomaterials

Manuscript Submission Deadline: December 01, 2024
Guest Editor: Adele Carradò
Co-Guest Editors: Gérald Ferblantier
Publication Date: June 2025
Keywords: Advanced Materials, Characterization, Surface Modification and Coatings, Thin Films and Interfaces
Scope: This special topic delves into the design and development of innovative thin films and tailored surfaces to overcome present constraints in sensing technologies, display functionality, and biomaterial performance. We encourage contributions that investigate the development of innovative metallic, ceramic, polymeric, and semiconducting (nano- and multi-) materials with the purpose of customizing features (e.g., increased conductivity, biocompatibility, wear, etc.) for use in these sectors. This welcomes research that uses skilled characterization methods to better understand the link between processing techniques, microstructure, and functional properties.
