Terahertz (THz) technology has attracted extensive attention from industry and academia due to its unique applications in chemical identification, environmental monitoring, security screening, biomedical imaging, and space explorations. Bringing these applications to daily use urgently requires compact and high-speed modalities to empower THz systems. Thanks to the rapid development of THz materials and devices in recent years, high-efficiency integrated THz systems with a compact size have become possible, delivering numerous unique functionalities that have never been achieved. Nowadays, the realm of integrated THz systems applications is vast and expanding, ranging from advanced material development, non-destructive evaluation, nanoimaging, nanomedicine, sensing, and cultural heritage exploration, to 6G communication.
This Special Issue aims to provide an overview of integrated THz systems—from the perspective of material, device, and system levels—and their applications. Submissions can focus on research in topics including but not limited to the following:
- mmWave and THz antennas;
- THz vacuum electronics;
- Active THz devices;
- Integrated THz optoelectronics;
- THz metamaterials for high-speed THz systems;
- THz spectroscopy systems;
- THz imaging systems;
- THz nanoscopy systems;
- Sub-THz and THz communication systems;
- THz systems for material development, non-destructive evaluation, and industrial inspection;
- THz information and signal processing.

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. Electronics 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.
