Electromagnetic Metasurfaces and Metamaterials: From Design to Applications
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 November 2023) | Viewed by 1632
Controlling electromagnetic wave propagation gives us the leverage to design novel devices for a variety of applications. The artificial arrangement of periodic structures of dielectric and magnetic materials opens up a new class of materials, called Metamaterials and Metasurfaces, which can be used to realize exotic electromagnetic properties. Metamaterials and Metasurfaces provide the scope to develop efficient devices for communication systems, near and far-field imaging, non-destructive evaluation, sensing, energy harvesting, etc. With applications ranging from microwave to optical frequencies and devices ranging from antennas to beam shapers to high efficient polarization converters, there is a huge scope for innovative ideas to design, fabricate, and test these devices. Coupled with novel manufacturing technologies such as additive manufacturing and high-efficiency computational platforms, Metamaterials and Metasurfaces provide a superb platform for the research community to effectively utilize the control over the electromagnetic wave propagation.
This Special Issue, “Metamaterials and Metasurfaces: From Design to Applications” gives electromagnetic researchers a special opportunity to disseminate their research ideas, novel devices, computational aspects, and new fabrication methods. The topics that are broadly covered include, but are not limited to: spatial and temporal photonic crystals; passive and active metamaterials; topological metamaterials; metasurfaces; plasmonic devices; computational electromagnetics; inverse algorithm; non-destructive evaluation; novel fabrication techniques such as additive manufacturing techniques and nano-fabrication methods.
Your research contribution in this journal would encourage the electromagnetic research community to further enhance their knowledge base and industrial interaction.

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. 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 2600 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.
