We invite you to submit your original research work or minireview/perspective to this Molecules Special Issue dedicated to “Recent Advances in Femtosecond Spectroscopy”. Femtosecond spectroscopy is a powerful tool for studying ultrafast dynamics in nature and also for analyzing fast processes in industrial applications. Exactly 20 years ago, the late Prof. A. Zewail received the Nobel Prize in chemistry “for his studies of the transition states of chemical reactions using femtosecond spectroscopy”. Since then, the femtosecond spectroscopy has turned from a combination of exotic techniques into a set of advanced characterization tools. To address the high demand for scientific research and technological development, various ultrafast spectroscopic methods have been developed over the last two decays with applications in diverse research fields including optics, semiconductors, biology, materials science, and so on.
This Special Issue aims to reflect recent developments in femtosecond spectroscopy and its application in studying ultrafast processes in chemistry, biology, and materials chemistry. This Special Issue also aims to provide an overview of fundamental and more advanced techniques for potential new or more experienced users. Submissions are expected to be focused on the application and development of the femtosecond spectroscopic technique to study ultrafast phenomena.

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. Molecules 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.
