Special Issue Information
The 5th International Conference on Applications of Optics and Photonics (AOP2022; https://aop2022.org/), organized by the Portuguese Society for Optics and Photonics, will be held in Guimarães (Portugal) on 18–22 July 2022. Since its first edition in 2011, the AOP conference has provided an excellent opportunity to, in an open, friendly and stimulating environment, foster the establishment of a wide range of cooperation projects and relationships with colleagues and institutions involved in research and education in optics and photonics from all around the world. This conference is open to contributions in all domains of optics and photonics and their application fields; therefore, we expect to review the state of the art in these subjects, and to foresee and discuss the future of research in optics and photonics. The large number of plenary and keynote lectures by world-renowned researchers in all fields of optics and photonics will set the high-quality standards of a varied and exciting scientific program.
We are honored to serve as Guest Editors of this Special Issue, which will be published in /Micromachines/ and will contain a selection of papers submitted and accepted at the AOP2022 conference in subjects relevant to the /Micromachines/ journal. Its main scope is to provide a timely and broad collection of the most innovative topics discussed at the latest edition of the conference, related to all relevant topics associated with the applications of optics and photonics. We warmly invite researchers to submit their contributions, both original research articles and review papers, to this Special Issue. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Design and optimization principles of micro and nanosystems;
- Micro and nanosystems and advanced technologies for optical engineering applications;
- Sensors and actuators, and microbots and nanorobots;
- Optical communications, optical fiber devices and applications;
- Biophotonics and biomedical and medical applications of light;
- Ultrafast laser and power laser systems;
- Surface micromachining and patterning;
- Optical metrology and industrial applications;
- Photonics and optical instrumentation for space and astronomy;
- Liquid crystals;
- Photonic and optoelectronic materials and devices;
- Micro/nano fabrication and manufacturing;
- Micro/nano-scale energy harvesting.

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. 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 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.
