Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As one of the hotspots in the field of photonics, micro–nano-optics has attracted increasing attention.

Micro–nano optics generally refers to the introduction of micro- and nano-optical structures into related materials to create new optical functional devices. The structure design and fabrication is a key issue in the development of micro–nano-optics. Its main advantage is that it can realize many new functions on the basis of local electromagnetic interaction of micro- and nano-optical structures. Micro–nano-optics is an important development direction of the new optoelectronic industry. It has played a significant role in many fields, such as optical communication, optical interconnection, optical storage, semiconductor devices, and so on.

The idea of micro–nano-optics is also used in other electromagnetic bands. Many structured components have also been developed in terahertz and microwave bands, and many micro–nano devices can realize different functions in multiple electromagnetic bands. Metamaterials, metasurfaces, and nano-photonic devices are typical representatives in this field.

The manufacturing and characterization of micro–nano-optical devices need the support of high-end measuring instruments. The development of micro–nano-optical devices also provides key components for high-end measuring instruments. Micro–nano-optics and high-end measuring instruments are deeply integrated.

This Special Issue aims to present original state-of-the-art research articles focused on the design, manufacture, and application of micro–nano-optical devices, as well as the development and application of high-end measurement instruments related to micro–nano manufacturing. Researchers are invited to submit their contributions to this Special Issue. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Nanotechnology and nanostructures in optics
  • Metamaterials in optics or microwave
  • Nanophotonics
  • Micro- and nano-measurement technology
  • Laser measurement technology and instruments
  • Modern optical technology and instruments for precision and ultraprecision measurement
  • 3D nanostructure measurement

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. Photonics 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 1800 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.
