Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 November 2019).
Interests: laser-matter interactions; multi-scale modelling; nanotechnology
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Nowadays, the laser-based synthesis of nanoscopic objects of micro- and nano-structures have found their place in many areas, such as integrated optical devices, catalysis, sensors, displays, quantum dots, solar cells, nano-biophotonics, and medicine. Modern progress in these applications is based on a combination of both experimental and numerical studies.
This Special Issue of Molecules aims to collect papers covering all types of laser interactions with various materials, ranging from metals to dielectrics and polymers, from non-organic to organic, from macroscopic to micro- and nano-scopic objects. The involved laser systems can also vary from continuous wave (CW) to ultra-short (femtosecond), and even the most modern can be attosecond ones. The articles should not only describe laser-based techniques and results, but, importantly, should bring more light on the mechanisms involved, such as non-linear photo-ionization, photo-chemistry, non-linear laser propagation effects, electronic excitations, charge transfer, and so on.

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 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.
