Since the first laser was developed in 1960, laser technology has been growing, and today, laser techniques constitute attractive alternatives for the processing of materials affording the sought versatility and reliability. Indeed, laser techniques can be used to fabricate substrates with a variety of high-precision patterns at different length scales and can be applied in noncontact and flexible set-ups under a great variety of environments. Moreover, researchers can make use of the versatility of laser sources and adapt them to material properties so that targeted nanoparticle distributions or specific surface patterns are obtained. Laser-based synthesis of nanomaterials and nanostructures find applications in many areas, such as plasmonic sensors, solar cells, catalysis, nano-biophotonics, and medicine, just to name a few.
This Special issue on “Laser Synthesis and Modification of Materials at the Nanoscale” aims to gather contributions on recent advances demonstrating the capabilities of laser methodologies to process materials at the nanometer scale. Contributions regarding both the fundamentals of the laser processing mechanisms or the applications of the obtained nanomaterials will be welcome.

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.
