Special Issue "Silicon Photonics – Emerging Devices and Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2019.
Centre de Nanosciences et de Nanotechnologies, Orsay, France
Interests: silicon photonics; nanophotonics; advanced devices for telecom/datacom applications (complex modulation format, etc.); radio over fiber and opto-RF applications; mid IR spectroscopy; chemical and biological sensing
The impressive development of silicon photonics in recent years has made it the preferred platform for the on-chip integration of high performing photonic devices. For instance, silicon photonics is widely recognized as an enabling technology for next generation datacom applications, as it holds the promise to leverage already-existing CMOS facilities for the large-volume production of ultra-compact and low-power consumption optoelectronic transceivers, delivering unprecedented data rates. Nevertheless, this enormous technological development has created a myriad of exciting new opportunities for Si photonics beyond datacom. Indeed, a remarkable effort is being devoted, both, at academic and industrial levels, to develop silicon photonic circuits for applications as diverse as chemical and biological sensing, radio-over-fiber and microwave photonics and quantum cryptography and computing. This Special Issue focuses on the latest research and development of silicon photonics, targeting cutting edge performance devices and systems.

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 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.
