Special Issue Information
Structured light is derived from the ability to tailor light and usually refers to the spatial control of amplitude, phase, and polarization. Microscopes, holography, optical communications, and laser machining are just several of the domains that have evolved over the past decade owing to the advances in wavefront-shaping platforms. Recently, spatiotemporally coupled wave packets have been reported and offer an unprecedented level of light manipulation in space and time. Nevertheless, with the deepening and extension of research, many new problems and challenges have emerged. The aim of this Topic is to provide the latest theoretical and experimental methods for the creation, detection, and control of the structured light. It is hoped that the contents of this Topic can provide useful information and technical references for interested readers. This publication will consist of topical research including (but not limited to) the following areas:
- High-dimensional structured light
- Spatiotemporal optical vortex
- Light shaping
- Vortex laser
- OAM entanglement
- Machine learning
- Nonlinear optics
- Photonic spin–orbit interaction
- Topology of structured light
- Optical imaging
- Optical manipulation

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. Photonics 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 1800 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.
