Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Microwave photonics is an inter-disciplinary field that bridges photonics and microwave electronics. It aims to apply photonic solutions to microwave applications for achieving superior performance in terms of bandwidth, insertion loss, dynamic range, size, weight, efficiency and power.  Microwave photonics serves as an enabling technology in a wide variety of applications such as GHz and THz signal generation and distribution, high-speed wireless communication networks, radar systems and sensors.

This Special Issue is intended to encourage researchers worldwide to report the new advances in microwave photonics. Original research papers on the following technical areas of microwave photonics are welcome: (i) high speed photonic devices; (ii) integration technologies for microwave photonic devices and subsystems; (iii) optical generation and detection of microwave / THz signals; (iv) optical processing and control of microwave signals; (v) photonics for antennas and beamforming; (vi) microwave photonics for biomedical applications; (vii) radio over fiber systems; (viii) other innovative applications of microwave photonics.

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. Photonics is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
