Special Issue in Optics: New Frontiers in Laser Welding
Materials in industrial applications have rapidly changed in the last two decades. As conventional mild steel is being replaced with high strength steels, nonferrous alloys, polymers, and composites, new joining and welding technologies have been required to cope with new material combinations. In order to ensure excellent productivity and quality in joining unexplored material combinations, welding researchers are continuously developing laser welding, friction stir welding, ultrasonic welding, adhesive bonding, and mechanical joining processes. Even for traditional arc welding and resistance spot welding processes, new welding materials, high production processes, and smart equipment are being developed.
This Special Issue covers the original review and contributed articles on recent advances in innovative welding and joining technologies for nontraditional material combinations. Topics include new processes, filler materials, monitoring and control systems, assessments, and applications.

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.
