Special Issue Information
Optical tweezers (OTs) enable trapping and manipulation without contact and apply minute forces on microscopic particles. Since the pioneering work of Arthur Ashkin, OTs have been developed at a dazzling speed.
To maintain the pace in recent advancements regarding OTs, the Special Issue, entitled “State of the Art in Optical Tweezers”, welcomes contributions regarding all aspects of optical trapping and manipulation. Theoretical and experimental studies are welcome, as well as articles concerning applications of OT in all the fields of science. This Special Issue will accept all forms of contributions, including research papers, communications and review articles.

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. Micromachines 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.
