Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to turn your attention to the forthcoming Special Issue dedicated to nonlinear nano-optics.

Nonlinear nano-optics is linked to symmetry properties of materials arising from molecular or nanostructure origin. In this Special Issue of Symmetry, we will focus on the importance of symmetry, or the lack of it, in classical and quantum areas of nonlinear nano-optics, including nano- and biophotonics, as well as plasmonics, from fundamental and applied perspectives. 

Special attention will also be paid to chirality and its consequences for the nonlinear optical properties of molecules and nanostructures.

This Special Issue will cover the latest groundbreaking ideas and cutting-edge technologies in the field, allowing us to address new fundamental challenges and define novel routes for applications of nonlinear nano-optics in classical and quantum science.

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. Symmetry 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 2400 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.
