Special Issue "Silicon Nanophotonics"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2016)

The dream of building low-loss, low-consumption, fast and small devices that manipulate light in fully-integrated circuits is becoming more and more feasible with regards to the incredible advances made in Silicon Photonics and Nanophotoncis over the past few decades.
The scope of this Special Issue of Materials is dedicated to “Silicon Nanophotonics”. Such a large topic covers areas as varied as optical telecommunications, data centers, high-performance computing, medical applications, sensing and bio-sensing, space and aeronautics, energy harvesting, light emitters, and detectors.
An important part of the topic also concerns the tools and the techniques we develop in terms of design, fabrication, and characterization of the different nano-components. Silicon is usually not the only material involved in the devices, and heterogeneous integration platforms are already playing a key role in the domain: research studies have focused on the integration of, for example, Ge, III/V semiconductors, and other thin films on silicon nanophotonic devices, as well as efforts to utilize nanostructures fabricated on silicon-on-insulator, silicon-on-oxidized silicon, amorphous silicon, etc.
It is a pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full-length research manuscripts, short communications, and reviews are welcome.

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 papers will be 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. Materials 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 1500 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.
