Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Laser Induced Plasma (or Breakdown) Spectroscopy (LIPS or LIBS) is an attractive analytical technique. This is due to the possibility of performing rapid and relatively low-cost elemental analysis of materials, without the need of complex sample pretreatment, and to the high sensitivity for multi-elemental identification and quantification of heavy as well as light elements. LIPS has matured in recent years into an in-field deployed analytical technique thanks to major advances in technological equipment and calibration approaches. Its applications range from quality control in the metal industry to cultural heritage characterization, mineral analysis in the mining industry to medical applications and environmental analysis, all the way to Mars geochemical exploration.
This Special Issue aims to collect original research papers and reviews on recent methodological and technological developments and/or novel uses of LIPS/LIBS in its broad applicative domains.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2300 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.
