Currently, laser ablation in liquids is a very actively-used physical approach for the preparation of advanced nanomaterials, demonstrating advantages over conventional approaches, such as ease of use; control over composition, defects and morphology of the product; low precursor consumption and thus low impact on environment; and so on. For the last two decades, it has proved to be a universal and efficient technique to generate, fragment, modify and conjugate in situ diverse nanostructures based on metals, alloys, semiconductor, ceramics, carbon-based, hybrid, and organic materials. More recently, such unique laser-generated nanomaterials have been tested for various applications in photonics and optoelectronics, catalysis, sensing, pharmacy and biomedicine, and other fields. Therefore, this Special Issue welcomes contributions from all researchers working on nanostructures prepared (or modified) by laser beams in liquid phase, as well as on their characterization, properties, 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. 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 2000 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.
