Special Issue "Quantum Communications and Quantum Networks"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2020.
Interests: quantum communications; high-dimensional quantum communications; quantum cryptography; silicon photonics for quantum communications
Interests: experimental quantum communications; quantum key distribution; propagation of entanglement; optical fibers and associated optoelectronic instrumentation
Quantum networks are the ultimate target in quantum communication, where many connected users can share information carried by quantum systems. The keystones of such structures are the reliable generation, transmission, and manipulation of quantum states. Two-dimensional quantum states, qubits, are steadily adopted as information units. However, high-dimensional quantum states, qudits, constitute a richer resource for future quantum networks, exceeding the limitations imposed by the ubiquitous qubits.
We are inviting you to submit to this Special Issue papers discussing quantum communication in its broadest sense. The scope of the Special Issue includes (among others) high-dimensional quantum communication, high-dimensional entanglement generation, teleportation, quantum cryptography, quantum error correction, and co-existence between quantum and classical light within the same channels.

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 1800 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.
