Special Issue Information
During the last decade, ultrashort-pulse lasers have emerged as versatile, precise and high-throughput toolkits for the surface and bulk nanopatterning of functional materials, uniquely harnessing diverse non-linear optical and non-thermal—electronic, plasmonic, coherent-phonon and shockwave—processes in the nanofabrication. Advanced plasmonic nanosensors, photocatalysts and other light-conversion nanodevices, micro-optical all-dielectric devices and nano/microlasers have been demonstrated via high-throughput laser ablative nanopatterning and nanoprinting. In bulk transparent dielectrics, micro-scale ultrashort-pulse laser non-linear propagation—self-focusing and filamentation—have produced polarization-oriented birefringent nanogratings, enabling the high-throughput inscription of hierarchical bulk polarizing nanostructures and related innovative micro-optical devices. Finally, the non-destructive nanoscale engineering of polarization domains in transparent ferroelectric materials by near-IR ultrashort laser pulses has enabled high-efficiency periodically poled non-linear crystals for optical frequency conversion. Meanwhile, basic optical and solid-state physics, underlying these outstanding nanotechnological applications of ultrashort-pulse lasers, in many cases, is not well understood yet, thus hindering emerging and state-of-the-art implications of these laser nanotechnologies.
In this Special Issue, fundamental optical and solid-state studies, anticipating and predicting nanoscale engineering in plasmonic and dielectric materials by ultrashort laser pulses, and corresponding applications will be in focus to provide a synergistic comprehensive overview of encouraging basics and remarkable state-of-the-art implications.
