Special Issue "Photonic Materials and Devices"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2020).
Photonics has become one of the fundamentals of science and technology in the 21st century. Optical communication, gas sensing, metrology, optical computing, lighting, imaging, and many more applications rely on efficient light emission, processing, and detection. For this reason, photonic materials and devices are a continuous hot topic in today’s science and are rapidly advancing into new areas of discovery.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to the Materials Special Issue on Photonic Materials and Devices. We are particularly interested in original research on natural and artificial materials with a broadly understood application in photonics on the modern photonic devices. Potential specific topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Novel materials used in optical and photonic systems;
- Optical fibers;
- Meta-materials and left-handed materials;
- Photonic crystals and gratings;
- Novel photonic devices;
- Lasers and gain;
- Passive and active optical elements;
- Ultra-fast photonics;
- Characterization of optical properties of materials;
- Optical sensing technologies.

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.
