All-dielectric nanophotonics is a rapidly developing area of research due to the possibility to control and manipulate light scattering by high-index semiconductor nanoparticles. Mature fabrication techniques, developed for silicon technologies, enable the realization of ambitious proposals that continue promoting the field. It opens a vast room of opportunities for designing novel types of nanoscale elements and devices and paves a way to advanced technologies of light energy manipulation. In particular, progress in all-dielectric metasurfaces and nanoantennas, new types of excitations, such as magnetic and toroidal modes and associated anapole states, ultrahigh-Q resonant modes, etc. promise to replace conventional bulky optical elements with nanometer-scale structures with enhanced functionality. Therefore, this section is to bring together up-to-date research on this topic from all over the world.
