Topical Collection "Laser Micromachining and Microfabrication"
A topical collection in Micromachines (ISSN 2072-666X).
A lot of technological advances depend on controllable micro- and nano-fabrication techniques to improve the performance of surfaces, components, and devices in various applications, such as biomedicine, communications, and energy harvesting. Lasers are uniquely suited for a wide variety of fabrication applications at both the micro- and the nano- scale: they are non-contact, and they can be focused and manipulated very accurately. To this end, we would like to invite reviews and original contributions to the Topical Collection “Laser Micromachining and Microfabrication”. Example topics include matter interactions, direct write processes, ultra-short pulse laser processing, surface treatment, and three-dimensional micro- and nano-fabrication.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the collection website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Micromachines is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
