Special Issue Information
Lasers have been well established as advanced tools in the 21st century, which have the potential to be used to manufacture various materials and obtain anticipated properties. Nowadays, techniques based on lasers, such as laser additive manufacturing, laser polishing, laser shock peening, laser quenching, femtosecond laser technologies, etc., are receiving much attention. Notably, laser manufacturing technologies have great potential to be used as tools to more efficiently process present and forthcoming high-performance components, as well as micro- and nano-fabrication in aerospace, aviation, ship and automobile, etc. However, up until now, many questions have remained regarding both theories and processes, and understanding the relationship between lasers and materials remains challenging. Thus, further investigation in this field is necessary and urgent.
The Special Issue scope embraces interdisciplinary work aimed at understanding and deploying the phenomena and mechanisms between lasers and materials, optimizing laser materials processing technology to obtain improved performance, model the microstructural response to lasers, and find the potential applications in the future.

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. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
