Micro-/nano-fabrication is a node processing technology. It refers to the design, processing, assembly, system integration, and application of submillimeter, micron, and nano-scale components and systems composed of these components. It integrates advanced technological achievements such as advanced tools for nanolithography, dry etching, and thin film deposition, additive manufacturing, optics, nano-electronics, computer micro-chips, sensors, and materials science. Currently, the main drivers for this technology are advanced micro-chips, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), and nano-electromechanical systems (NEMS).
Within these systems, the surface plays an important role. Different surface micro-/nano-structures can exhibit interesting functions. The development of high-quality micro-/nano-structures and devices with specific surface functionalities is increasing. At present, the development of functional micro-/nano-structures and devices, such as metamaterials, metasurfaces, flat optics, superwetting surfaces, anti-reflection (moth-eye ones) structures, and other structures or devices is still limited by micro-/nano-fabrication technology. Therefore, this Special Issue focuses on extensive and in-depth studies of surfaces and their functionalities arising from different micro-/nano-fabrication techniques. We hope this Special Issue will provide some references for the improvement of the processing capacity and efficiency of micro-/nano-fabrication technology in the future, as well as the key directions of future research.

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. Nanomaterials 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 2900 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.
