Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues

The field of Plasmonics is influencing material properties and applications in chemical sensing, catalysis, electronics, sub-diffraction-limited imaging, single molecular spectroscopy, non-linear optics, magneto-optics, magnetic recording and metamaterials, to name a few. In this special issue of micromachines we would like to invite the plasmonics community to present its visionary work combining material science, photonics, and electronic devices. We are specifically calling on active researchers to submit their current work that presents the plasmonic community with a wider perspective of the future of the field as well as its current challenges and limitations. Accordingly, this special issue of micromachine, will include detailed research papers, short commentaries, as well as review articles describing   experimental, computational and/or theoretical aspects pertaining to the synthesis, fabrication, characterization and properties of plasmonic materials, devices and systems for any field of application.

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. Micromachines 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 1400 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.
