Special Issue Information
Over the past few decades, ultrafast lasers have been studied intensively and have become indispensable tools for diverse applications in physics, biology, chemistry, medicine, and industry. Now, the pulse duration of ultrafast laser systems has been shortened from the traditional picosecond and femtosecond range down to the attosecond level; the peak power has reached 10 PW based on chirped-pulse amplification technology; and the spectrum can cover wavelengths from extreme ultraviolet to terahertz. These achievements enrich the understanding of scientists in regard to the principles of ultrafast laser, while paving the way for the invention of new technologies in many fields. However, the development of ultrafast lasers is far from an end, as properties such as a higher average power and pulse energy, shorter pulse duration, broader spectrum bandwidth, new wavelengths, higher stability and compact size are becoming more and more desirable.
This Special Issue focuses on the latest progress in the development of ultrafast laser systems. In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Mode-locking technique;
- Femtosecond solid-state lasers;
- Femtosecond fiber lasers;
- Ultrafast laser amplifiers;
- Ultrafast nonlinear techniques;
- Ultrafast EUV/MIR/THz techniques;
- Attosecond laser technologies;
- Frequency combs;
- Ultrafast laser materials;
- Ultrafast laser applications.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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.
