Applied Physics A
|Appl. Phys. A|
|Edited by||M. Stuke|
Applied Physics A: Materials Science and Processing is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that is published monthly by Springer Science+Business Media. The editor-in-chief is Michael Stuke (Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry). This publication is complemented by Applied Physics B (Lasers & Optics).
Aims and scope
Applied Physics A journal covers theoretical and experimental research in applied physics, including surfaces, thin films, the condensed phase of materials, nanostructured materials, application of nanotechnology, and techniques pertaining to advanced processing and characterization. Coverage also includes characterizing materials, evaluating materials, optical & electronic materials, production engineering, process engineering, interfaces (surfaces & thin films), corrosion, and finally coatings.
Publishing formats include articles pertaining to original research, reviews, and rapid communications. Invited papers are also included on a regular basis and collected in special issues.
