We invite you contribute to this Special Issue, which continues highlighting advanced activity in the field of light–matter interactions at the nanoscale. Light–matter interactions, at the nanometer scale, is a growing field of research known as nano-optics and nano-photonics. The main motivation comes from the potential to extend concepts and functionalities of conventional optics and photonics down to the nanometer scale, towards ultra-compact photonic and imaging devices that may overcome the diffraction limit. This field obviously covers a broad scope and is expected to have a strong impact on our society, especially in the areas of chip-scale optical interconnects, bio-medical applications, and the development of nanoscopy for subwavelength resolution imaging and nano-photolithography due to the high wavevector components of detected light.
This Special Issue is intended to cover the most important aspects of the basics and applications in subwavelength resolution microscopy, interaction of light with nanoscale systems like artificial quantum structures, molecules, and proteins, optical interaction between nanosystems, and resonance phenomena localized surface plasmons, surface plasmon polaritons, and microresonators.Prof. Dr. Vladimir P.

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 1500 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.
