The synergy of nanotechnology with photonics, or nanophotonics, has recently attracted considerable attention due to the wide frontier applications in the field of biomedicine, especially cancer diagnosis and therapy. With the unique photophysical and photochemical properties, various optical biosensors based on the surface plasmon resonance, electrochemiluminescence, fluorescence, absorbance or reflectance have been developed for the sensitive detection of biomarkers for the early cancer screening. Moreover, photoresponsive nanotechnologies such as photothermal therapy, photodynamic therapy, photoimmunotherapy and light-triggered drug delivery pave the way for the development of photo-driven nanotherapy technologies. Furthermore, the integration of optical diagnosis and therapy technologies, such as photothermal therapy and photoacoustic imaging, provides a smart and efficient nanoformulation to meet the challenges in personalized precise medicine.
This Special Issue invites contributions in the form of original research articles and review articles. The key topics of this Special Issue include but are not limited to the principles, technologies, devices and systems, such as:
- Optical nanobiosensing technologies, including surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy, fluorescence, chemiluminescence, luminescence, photoacoustic imaging;
- Optical nanotherapeutic technologies, such as photodynamic therapy, photothermal therapy, photoimmunotherapy and light-triggered drug delivery;
- Synthesis and biomedical applications of photoresponsive nanomaterials and nanoprobes
- Cancer liquid biopsy based on nanophotonic technology;
- Photo-driven nanotheranostics;
- Biomedical applications based on nanophotonic devices.

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. Nanomaterials 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 2900 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.
