Special Issue "Sub-wavelength Optics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2019)
Following the growing developments of nanotechnology, nano-structure manufacturing processes have multiplied and led to the miniaturization of high-performance optical components. These components are not limited to usual functions, such as bulk devices, but claim exotic behaviors never highlighted in conventional optics. In this context, sub-wavelength optics has become a key element in the understanding and design of such components. The light-matter interactions at this scale can lead to nanometric confinement of electromagnetic energy, thus modifying the intrinsic properties of materials. This Special Issue on “Sub-Wavelength Optics” provides an overview of recent advances in this field through invited papers covering all areas ranging from fundamental theoretical principles to applications in different domains (light harvesting, nano-tweezers, E- and H-field sensors, modulators, quantum-emitters, etc.).

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.
