This special issue of Nanomaterials, “Advances in Antibacterial Laser-fabricated Nanomaterials”, is devoted to the serious problem of antibiotic resistance of pathogenic bacterial micro-organisms, which is rapidly developing in bacterial cultures even under hospital conditions. This problem should be definitely and quickly solved to save human lives, being addressed from many – chemical, physical, micro-biological and other points. Meanwhile, innovative laser-fabricated nanomaterials – colloidal nanoparticles, nanotextures etc. – are highly welcome to make this service, holding a promise of highly-focused, facile high-tech applications without pronounced side effects. This issue will present a synergistic collection of innovative research results, which could in near future pave a way to emerging pioneering key-enabling approaches to antibacterial treatment and anti-fouling protection.

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. Nanomaterials 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.
