Materials Letters is an interdisciplinary journal devoted to rapid communications on the science, applications, and processing of materials.

Materials Letters has an open access companion journal Materials Letters: X, which has the same aims and scope, editorial board and peer-review process. To submit to Materials Letters: X visit https://www.editorialmanager.com/MLBLUX/default.aspx.

Materials Letters is dedicated to publishing novel, cutting edge reports of broad interest to the materials community. The journal provides a forum for materials scientists and engineers, physicists, and chemists to rapidly communicate on the most important topics in the field of materials.

Contributions include, but are not limited to, a variety of topics such as:

Materials - Metals and alloys, amorphous solids, ceramics, composites, polymers, semiconductors, biomaterials and biological materials, advanced materials, metamaterials, high-entropy alloys, nitrides, and oxides.

Applications - Structural, opto-electronic, magnetic, biomedical, MEMS, sensors, electronics, smart materials, additive manufacturing, membranes, materials for energy systems, batteries, photocatalysis.

Characterization - Analytical, microscopy, scanning probes, nanoscopic, optical, electrical, magnetic, acoustic, spectroscopic, diffraction.

Novel Materials - Micro and nanostructures (nanowires, nanotubes, nanoparticles), nanocomposites, thin films, superlattices, quantum dots.

Processing - Crystal growth, thin film processing, sol-gel processing, solvo-hydrothermal processing, mechanical processing, assembly, nanocrystalline processing, sustainable/green processing routes.

Properties - Mechanical, magnetic, optical, electrical, ferroelectric/piezoelectric, thermal, interfacial, transport, thermodynamic, photoelectrochemical, photocatalytic, thermoelectric, biological, electrochemical.

Synthesis - Quenching, solid state, mechano-chemical, solidification, solution synthesis, vapor deposition, high pressure, explosive, MOVPE and LPE epitaxial processes, single crystal growth.

Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence - Materials discovery, design of materials and digital materials science.
