Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues

Terahertz (THz) radiation remains one of the least exploited frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum; this is despite its continuous growth since its first discoveries in the mid-1970s. As such, opportunities for developing new materials and structures that can operate at this regime persist. Some of its most recent applications include but are not limited to probing charge carrier dynamics in photovoltaic devices, controlling biological processes in living cells, and to the development of organic electronic devices in the THz frequencies. Many other distinct uses of this unique far-infrared radiation are currently being explored in various research laboratories. However, this review volume will delimit its scope to fundamental concepts of THz spectroscopy, progress on its use as a versatile optoelectronic material characterization technique, presentation of novel design structures for efficient generation and detection of this far-infrared radiation, and the possibility of its use as a control pulse for nonlinear light–matter interaction, among many others.

This Special Issue aims to stimulate researchers worldwide to share their interesting and promising works in the field of linear and nonlinear spectroscopy and/or in the development of THz devices and structures, and spectroscopy techniques and others listed below. It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to this Special Issue. Original research articles, review articles, and communications are welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Materials 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 2300 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.
