Holography was invented in 1948, when Dr. Dennis Gabor announced the result of his research in recording and reconstructing a specific wavefront. In the 1960s, much research was touching on volume holography, and as a result, more and more superior properties were discovered. From then on, volume holography has been not only a new theoretical topic but also a new approach in providing novel solutions to an optical/photonic device or system. In 2004, Optical Engineering launched the first issue on so-called volume holographic optical elements (VHOE), which increased its impact on modern optical/photonic research in providing superior characteristics, including the narrow band of spatial/temporal filtering, the flexible design of holographic multiplexing, higher diffraction efficiency, compact or slim component size, etc. However several tough tasks remain: Precise calculation or simulation of a strong VHOE, fabrication of a VHOE, and a stable and long-life VHOE, even when VHOEs have been extensively adopted in various applications.
This Special Issue on VHOE aims to collect novel and interesting research based on VHOE technology. The potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Theoretical calculation or simulation of diffraction efficiency of a VHOE
- New VHOE recording medium
- New VHOE applications
- New VHOE structures
- VHOE for optical communication
- VHOE for optical sensing
- VHOE for image processing
- VHOE for spatial filtering
- VHOE for wavelength filtering
- Multi functions with use of VHOE
- Dynamic VHOE
- Long-life VHOE

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. 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 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.
