With recent advances in nanotechnology, fabrication and characterization of metallic nanostructures have attracted a great deal of attention. By structuring metallic surfaces at the sub-micron scale, light is coupled to surface plasmons and can be confined to a deep sub-wavelength volume. As a result, both linear and nonlinear optical responses are highly enhanced, enabling high-resolution detection. The ability to design state-of-the-art metallic nanostructures gives rise to fundamental optical phenomena at the nano-scale and to development of a wide range of optical devices for (bio)-imaging and sensing.
This Special Issue on "Metallic Nanostructures" attempts to cover recent advances in the fabrication of metallic nanostructures and characterization techniques, especially techniques related to electronic microscopies. Their applications in color generations, imaging, and sensing will be covered as well.

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 2200 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.
