Special Issue Information
It is our pleasure to announce this Special Issue devoted to timing detectors.
The rise in luminosity at particle collider experiments resulted in an increased interest in recent years in detectors capable of measuring the time of arrival of single particles with a precision of a few tens of picoseconds. Several detector technologies can achieve this performance, and they find applications in different areas, both within and beyond high energy physics. In parallel with sensor technology, dedicated readout electronics are being developed, allowing for systems of practical size and number of channels.
This Special Issue aims to summarize the state-of-the-art of timing detectors exploring different and innovative technologies, modeling and simulation tools, readout strategies and electronics, and applications. This Special Issue should provide a reference for further technological developments and contain the necessary information to be an aid in finding new applications of timing detectors.
We invite contributions in the form of expert comprehensive reviews or research articles dealing with timing detectors from a wide perspective.
Contributions are expected to address but are not limited to the following areas:
- Existing and future timing detector concepts;
- Detector technologies (silicon, gas, Cherenkov, scintillators, etc.);
- Detector modeling and simulation;
- Signal processing;
- Readout electronics;
- Synchronization and clock distribution;
- Timing applications (particle physics, medicine, etc.).
It is worth mentioning that, this special issue will also publish the selected papers from the 12th workshop on picosecond timing detectors, electronics and applications (University of Zurich, Switzerland, September 9-11, 2021). which focuses on fast timing detectors in the picosecond range including technological developments and large scale applications in physics experiments.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Instruments is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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.
