Since their invention in 1960, lasers have been successfully applied to both fundamental and applied research. In particular, laser spectroscopy is a powerful technique which has been used in physics, chemistry, and biology to study and unravel the structure of matter by using laser light as a pumping probe. The development of solid-state and tunable lasers working in both continuous and pulsed mode has resulted in a sensitive, versatile tool for sensing and analytical applications.
This Special Issue covers the whole spectrum of laser spectroscopy, ranging from the study of the interaction of radiation with matter in terms of absorption, fluorescence, and scattering to UV–vis–IR spectroscopy, imaging, ultrafast laser spectroscopy, optical sources, and remote sensing. The topics of this Special Issue include fundamental, applied, technological, and industrial aspects of laser spectroscopy. Novel applications in optics, photonics, energy, and biomedicine, as well in materials science and technology, are warmly welcome.
It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to this Special Issue. Full papers, short communications, and reviews would be greatly appreciated.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
