Interests: electromagnetics of complex media and metamaterials; metamaterials with pronounced spatial dispersion; negative refraction and subwavelength imaging; quantum-electromagnetic effects in metamaterials; super-Planckian radiative heat transfer in metamaterials
A couple of decades have passed since the advent of electromagnetic metamaterials. Although the research on artificial microwave materials dates back to the middle of the 20th century, the most prominent development in the electromagnetics of artificial media has happened in the new millennium. In the last decade, the electromagnetics of one-, two-, and three-dimensional metamaterials acquired robust characterization and design tools. Novel fabrication techniques have been developed. Many exotic effects involving metamaterials and metasurfaces, which initially belonged in a scientist’s lab, are now well understood by practicing engineers. Therefore, it is time for the metamaterial concepts to become a designer’s tools of choice in the landscape of electronics, microwaves, and photonics.
This Special Issue on “Engineering Metamaterials” focuses on the theory and applications of electromagnetic metamaterials, metasurfaces, and metamaterial transmission lines as the building blocks of present-day and future electronic, photonic, and microwave devices.
Submissions are invited on topics including, but not limited to:
- Active, smart, and controllable metamaterials,
- Metamaterials for green energy,
- Metamaterials for radiative heat transfer,
- Metamaterials for biomedical applications,
- Fractal and topological metamaterials,
- Metamaterials for absorbers and energy harvesters,
- Metamaterial antennas and sensors,
- Metamaterials for wave front and polarization control,
- Metamaterial waveguides and transmission lines,
- Metamaterial-inspired filters, phase shifters and delay lines.
The Special Issue Best Paper Award (300 CHF, a certificate, and a free publication opportunity for the author’s next submission to Electronics) will be selected from this Special Issue by an evaluation panel consisting of the editors and leading experts in the field.

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 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 1400 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.
