Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Denis Barataud received his engineer’s degree from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Télécommunications de Bretagne, Brest, France, in 1994, and his Ph.D. degree in Electronics from the University of Limoges, Limoges, France, in 1998. From 1998 to 1999, he was a Postdoctoral Scientist with the Microwave Laboratory, CNES, Toulouse, France. Since 2000, he has been with the XLIM (formerly IRCOM) Laboratory, University of Limoges, where in 2001 he became an Assistant Professor and a Full Professor in 2012. His research interests include the development of time-domain measurement set-ups and techniques for the characterization of nonlinear devices and the optimization of power amplifier design. He is now General Manager of the Microwave System Lab of XLIM. Professor Barataud is Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). He was the Technical Program Chair of the European Microwave Conference (EuMC) in 2015. He was a member of the Technical Program Review Committee of the European Radar Conference (EuMC) from 2014 to 2018 and the French representative member (Group 1) of the EuMA General Assembly from 2016 to 2018. He was also the general chair of the European Microwave Week (EuMW) in Paris. He has authored or coauthored more than 130 scientific papers, 30 of them published in international journals.

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. Energies 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.
