Interests: optoelectronic devices and systems; reduced dimensional systems and their use in high-speed low-noise sensors of light, charged particles, and TeraHertz radiation
The special issue on photodetectors intends to cover state of the art in detection of light, broadened to include electromagnetic radiation such as x-ray and THz radiation, as well as particle detection. Papers are solicited which deal with all aspects of absorption of light in different media and structures, generation of carriers or other forms of interaction of light with the medium, such as plasmon resonance, and transport, collection, and generation of electric signal resulting from this optical excitation. Of special interest is structures with sub-wavelength dimensions such as quantum dots and wires, two-dimensional systems such as graphene or 2D electron or hole gasses, and arrays of such systems such as photonic bandgap materials. Regular research articles as well as review articles are welcome.

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. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
