The properties of variously structured beams, and their forms of interaction with nano-structured media, are indeed emerging as a new frontier in modern optics. This special Issue includes ten contributed papers focused on the most recent advances in structured light, structured media, and their synergy, targeting novel interactions of structured light with matter, developments in fundamental theory, and a wide range of real world applications.
