Antennas are important elements of wireless information communication technologies, along with sources of electromagnetic radiation and their detectors. They are at the heart of modern radio and microwave frequency communications technologies and refer to devices converting electricomagnetic currents into propagating waves and vice versa. Recently, the concept of antennas has been extended to the optical domain resulting in development of optical nanoantennas, which transmit and receive optical signals based on nanoscale objects. The ultimate goal is to achieve high efficiency in detection and directivity of the transmitting signals for all-optical.
The functionality of a nanoantenna is two-fold: i) to transform the near-field of a quantum emitter into freely propagating optical radiation, and ii) convert the incident radiation into a strongly confined near-field.
This Special Issue focuses on the latest research and development of optical nanoantennas and their applications, including linear, nonlinear, chiral, plasmonic, all-dielectric, and strong-coupled structures.

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.
