Special Issue "Advance in Plasmonics and Metamaterials"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2017).

Plasmonics and metamaterials have attracted increasing interest both in terms of fundamental physics and industry. Recently, these two fields have been strongly connected to produce a new horizon, known as plasmonic metamaterials, where the fields of surface plasmons and metamaterials inspire each other. A great deal of significant research is being addressed in a wide range of wavelengths, from ultraviolet, visible, infrared, and terahertz to microwave, in various applications, such as biological and chemical sensors, solar cells, photodetectors, light emitters, lenses, microscopy, antennas and defense, and in various materials, such as metals, semiconductors, dielectrics, nitrides, graphene, and 2D materials. Fabrication methods are also important due to the construction of complex artificial structures with nanoscale sizes. Recent advances in plasmonics and metamaterials, therefore, extend over a wide range of diverse fields.
This Special Issue aims to introduce recent progress in plasmonics and metamaterials from a wide perspective to encourage a greater synergy in the research community.

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 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.
