Interests: high-order laser harmonics, free-electron lasers, attosecond pulses, extreme-ultraviolet optics, ultrafast beamlines
Techniques for generating, controlling, manipulating, and measuring ultrashort optical pulses have become increasingly important in many scientific areas including, among others, ultrahigh speed optical communications, photonic signal processing, microwave photonics, optical sensing, biophotonics, spectroscopy and characterization of ultrafast phenomena. Besides the ultrashort pulsewidth, ultra-low phase and amplitude noise are important features for the most of the ultrashort pulse applications. For this reason it is also important to be capable of their characterization. This Special Issues aims to represent a snapshot of the state of the art in ultrashort pulse generation and shaping, ultrashort pulse characterization and utilization. Ultra-short pulses in the whole optical spectrum from near infrared to soft X-rays with low or high repetition rate will be included. Fundamentals, enabling technologies, new techniques and applications will be covered.

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.
