Special Issue on Ceramic and Composite Fibers for Energy and Health Applications

OPEN ceramics

Open Ceramics, the official, peer-reviewed, Open Access journal of the European Ceramic Society, published by Elsevier, invites research and review articles to be published in a special issue “Ceramic and Composite Fibers for Energy and Health Applications”.

One-dimensional (nano)-fibers have found several application fields like gas sensing, Li-ion batteries, photovoltaics, electrochemical water splitting, filtration processes, wound dressing or drug delivery approaches. As a versatile, simple and up scalable method for (nano)-fiber generation, electrospinning received increasingly attention in recent years. By variation of process parameters,

characteristic properties such as material composition, morphology, size or porosity can be modified to fit desired application needs.

The aim of this featured issue is to gather contributions that address current progress in the field of electrospinning with a special focus on ceramic and composite fibers, advancing the status quo in energy and health applications. Thus, Open Ceramics welcomes novel contributions including, but not limited to:

  • Sophisticated fiber-shaping by modified electrospinning approaches

  • Generation of ceramic or composite fibers with improved functionalities

  • Integration of single fibers or meshes in device architectures

  • Core-shell fiber geometries with applications in energy or health topics

  • Post-process modification or functionalization of fiber assemblies

    We kindly invite you to submit your work to contribute to this special issue.

    Deadline for manuscript submission with OA Full Waiver: June 30, 2022.
