Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

Terahertz (THz) waves have attracted great attention in communication, medicine, product quality control, nondestructive testing, and homeland security applications owing to their special properties: transmissivity similar to radio wave, directivity similar to light wave, safety for humans (low energy as compared to X-rays), spectral response of many substances in the THz range, etc. Graphene, a single layer of carbon atomic honeycomb network crystal, shows unique electrical and optical properties such as high values of carrier mobility, high thermal conductivity, fast carrier relaxation, and light transparency (97.3%). In 2004, Novoselov et al. obtained and investigated the first monolayer graphene by mechanical exfoliation of bulk graphite. Since then, graphene-based devices have attracted great interest due to their potential use for different fields; in particular, graphene can have a strong interaction with photons, and different phenomena are involved, especially in the range of terahertz. Graphene-based electronic devices have shown efficient detection of terahertz radiation using different phenomena such as optical excitation of plasmons and thermoelectric effect. Emission of terahertz radiation has been theoretically predicted, and development of a graphene-based emitter intensively investigated. Hence, graphene is an excellent material for novel applications in the THz range to build devices such as THz sensors, emitters, and modulators. The aim of the present Special Issue is to present a broad vision of the current trends in graphene-based technologies that are investigated to develop different electronic devices for future terahertz applications.

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.
