Special Issue "Frequency Comb for Precise Measurement"
A special issue of Applied Sciences (ISSN 2076-3417).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2014).
Interests: bose-einstein condensation and atom optics; atomic interferometry; single atom trap and rydberg atoms; frequency stabilization of lasers and its applications
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.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
