Special Issue Information
The 6th International Conference on the Physics of Optical Materials and Devices—ICOM2022 and the 5th International Workshop of Persistent and Photostimulable Phosphors—IWPPP5 will be held from 29 August to 2 September 2022 in Belgrade, Serbia www.icomonline.org. The event is organized by the Society for Science Development of Serbia (Serbia); Extreme Conditions and Materials: High Temperature and Irradiation—CEMHTI (France) and Centre national de la recherche scientifique—CNRS (France). The event emphasizes the importance of a basic scientific understanding of optical materials and persistent and photostimulable phosphors. Particular emphasis is placed on the wide bandgap materials in crystalline, glass, and nanocrystalline forms, as well as optical properties of rare earth and transition metal ions used as dopants in different hosts. The applications mainly involve lasers, scintillators, phosphors, and optical sensors. The event addresses all aspects of temperature measurements using thermographic phosphors, including synthesis, characterization, calibration, measurement techniques development, instrumentation, and data processing, as well as applications in industry, fundamental research, and biomedicine. Further, the characterization, control, measuring, and quantification of persistent/photostimulable luminescence will be discussed. This Special Issue contains selected contributions of participants of the ICOM2022 conference and IWPPP5 workshop.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Crystals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
