Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Benefiting from the development of nanofabrication technology, the metalens, as a breakthrough of optical design, has demonstrated tremendous capabilities in manipulating light including diffraction-limited focus spot, broadband achromaticism, wide field-of-view, polarization functionalities, etc. The ultrathin and ultralight features as the core advantage of the metalens are the ever-growing requirement of modern applications, such as in the fields of imaging, spectroscopy, color/polarization routing, tunable focusing, augmented/virtual reality, and other unexplored applications. Someday, the metalenses will make it into the industry and toward real applications when it meets commercial manufacturing capability.

The main focus of this Special Issue is to cover the recent advances in newly developed state-of-the-art metalens-related topics, such as metalens for quantum information, polarization-multiplexed metalens, polarization-independent metalens, Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor (CMOS) compatible process for metasurface, low aspect ratio dielectric metasurface, materials for visible metalens, wafer-scale integration, and the characterization of metalens.

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in Nanomaterials.

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. Nanomanufacturing is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
