Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is dedicated to modern approaches to Terahertz metamaterials design and their applications.

Terahertz metamaterials have evolved significantly since their first demonstration about 15 years ago. They have emerged as relatively simple metallic structures and have made a long way towards numerous designs and applications, including filters, amplitude and phase modulators, chiral and three-dimensional structures for polarisation manipulation, perfect absorbers and reflectors. Metamaterials are used as highly susceptible sensors due to the strong resonances they possess. Electrically, optically and mechanically tunable metamaterials have paved the way to ultrafast tunable THz modulators, including highly controllable phase shifters, absorbers, beam steerers and spatial light modulators. Modern trends in the design of metamaterials, and in particular of THz metamaterials, include all-dielectric and phase-change material-based metamaterials and metasurfaces.

It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Fundamental and applied research on the design, simulation, fabrication, characterisation and applications of terahertz metamaterials will be covered comprehensively, with special focus on dynamic and highly tunable metamaterials, all-dielectric metamaterials and metasurfaces and biomedical applications of terahertz metamaterials. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

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. 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 2000 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.
