Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the rapid development of nanotechnology, there has been an increasing interest in the research and applications of nanomaterials. Nanomaterials have shown unique and interesting features compared to their bulk counterparts, among which, the phenomena induced by light-particle interactions have attracted the attention of researchers in various fields. When the nanoparticles are illustrated by light, heat will be generated due to the dissipation of light. The temperature increase of the particles will lead to a series of effects including nanoscale heating, electrons excitation, pressure wave generation, and nanobubble generation, therefore triggering their applications in different fields ranging from biomedicine to energy harvesting.

The aim of this special issue is to cover the most recent achievements in the field of light-particle interaction, including fundamental research in the fields of thermoplasmonics, photoacoustics, photochemistry, and their possible applications.

The topics of interest for this Special Issue include but are not limited to the following:

  • Thermoplasmonics;
  • Photoacoustics;
  • Photochemistry;
  • photocatalysis;
  • Microfluidics based on light-particle interaction;
  • Photothermal therapy;
  • Solar energy harvesting;
  • Fluid flow induced by thermoplasmonics and photoacoustics;
  • Photoacoustic probe;
  • Photoacoustic imaging;
  • Solar water splitting using nanomaterials.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2400 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.

Recently, the combined application of synergistic therapies for photodynamic antimicrobial chemotherapy has become important to obtain more efficient results. The synergism between two sensitizers, rose bengal (RB) and chlorin e6 (Ce6), excited by two different methods, was evaluated as a novel approach to both photodynamic and sonodynamic therapy against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. The sonostability and singlet oxygen generation (with 1,3-diphenylisobenzofuran for RB and tetrathiafulvalene for Ce6) were measured under sonication (1 MHz, 3 W) using a spectrophotometer. RB and Ce6 remained stable during sonication. RB was a more efficient sonosensitizer than Ce6. The dual synergism between RB and Ce6 was noticed, achieving a >3 log reduction for molar ratios RB:Ce6 of 1:1 and 1:3, while, alone, the sensitizers excited with ultrasound and light, respectively, achieved only ca. a 1 log reduction.
