Special Issue Information
Thin films by pulsed laser deposition evolved fast in the last years, towards high interdisciplinary research, using new classes of materials with different particularities in their interaction with plasma and use in ablative process. Thin films based on new metal oxides, nanoparticles or 2D structures evolved fast, materials for sensors, doping sensors, polymer assisted or different polymer composites and nanocomposites for multifunctional structures, allowed a wide spectrum of use in applications from quantum effects to sensing, actuators, photovoltaics, plasmon assisted process, new target materials for PLD process able to offer tailored properties, advanced materials for biomedical applications, lab on chip applications, high secure inscription process, superconductive materials, semiconductors, self-assembling using block copolymers, porous structures and many others. Such materials due their outstanding properties can bring advances in electronics, biochemistry, environmental sciences, energy, biomedicine, automotive, aerospace (but limited to), by integrating different materials and components with the processing technology. The special issue should be focused also on the physical and chemical absorbance of the toxic gases on the surface and the modification of the surface.

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. Materials 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 2300 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.
