Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Optical frequency combs have revolutionized optical frequency metrology and precision measurement since its invention more than ten years ago. They have made it possible to directly link the optical frequency to microwave frequency, and thus they have been applied for precision measurements of fundamental constants, and high-precision atomic clocks.
Now optical frequency combs have been widely used in various applications including optical and microwave frequency synthesis, attosecond pulse generation, direct frequnecy comb spectroscopy, and precision distance measurements. In this special issue, we focus on optical frequency combs and related technologies for precise measurement and also the various applications based on optical frequency combs.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences 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 800 CHF (Swiss Francs).
