The study of laser fabricated periodic nanostructures is one of the leading topics of today’s photonics research. Such structures on the surface of metals, semiconductors, dielectrics or polymers can generate new material properties with special functionalities. Depending on the specific material parameters and the morphology of the structures, new devices like microlasers, optical nanoswitches, optical storage devices, biosensors or antifraud features can be realized. Furthermore, surface textures can be used to improve the tribological properties of special tools for the reduction of friction losses or wear, to modify the wettability or the cell and biofilm growth properties of surfaces or as decoration elements for the refinement of precious goods.
This Special Issue focuses on the latest theoretical developments and practical applications of laser-induced periodic surface structures that can be generated in a self-organized way (LIPSS, ripples) or via laser interference ablation. It aims to attract both academic and industrial researchers in order to foster the current knowledge of nanomaterials and to present new ideas for future applications and new technologies.

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.
