Scope: Extended defects such as dislocations and internal interfaces have been frequently utilized to tune desired phases and optimize mechanical properties. This special topic aims to publish research that brings together state-of-the-art characterization tools and computational tools for fundamental understanding of defect-microstructure interactions and the corresponding defect engineering strategies to design new microstructures, both homogeneous and heterogeneous / hierarchical for unprecedented properties.
