Special Issue Information
I invite you to submit to this Special Issue, which seeks research and review articles on laser micro/nano fabrication techniques. These include but are not limited to (1) new laser-based approaches to fabricate micro/nano structures, (2) subtractive methods, precision laser ablation and cutting, (3) additive methods and laser-induced deposition, (4) laser bonding, welding, and forming of components; (5) novel software, CAD, and nanometer precision hardware for direct laser writing, and (6) potential research and industrial applications in optical, electronic, and biological fields. Laser micro/nano fabrication is rapidly becoming a preferred manufacturing method due to its inherent high precision, mask-less nature, and rapid processing speed. This Special Issue aims to feature the latest developments in various applications of laser micromachining.

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.
