Keywords: Characterization, Nanotechnology, Powder Technology, Surface Modification and Coatings, Microstructure; Agglomerates; Formation Mechanisms; Sintering; Roasting
Scope: This special topic solicits high-quality papers with a focus on the latest achievements in characterization of microstructural evolution during powder processing using single or combined methods involving classification, blending, thermal treatment, compaction, etc. Of particular interest is characterization of microstructures of agglomerates formed by powders due to various mechanisms, e.g., electrostatic forces between very small (nanoscale) particles, the formation of bridges between particles upon spraying of an additional liquid or binder, or by thermal effects including sintering and roasting.
