Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

At present, LED lighting is an efficient lighting reality. The works and research studies related to the improvement in LED equipment in urban and domestic lighting are especially interesting. However, some problems related to thermal dissipation, harmonic pollution, light quality, color tº, energy efficiency, adequate envelope, improved optics, useful life, annoying glare, environmental impact, light pollution, and waste recovery are beginning to be detected. These are key for the technological development of LED luminaires and their light efficiency, energy, and sustainability. On the other hand, it is increasingly interesting to analyze the ecological footprint of the manufacturing processes of LED luminaires, including their optical envelope, with LCA techniques, as well as analyzing the recovery of waste from obsolete luminaires. This Special Issue aims to focus on these issues and their impact to achieve optical improvements in LED luminaires, analyzing these problems and proposing improvement solutions.

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. Optics 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 1200 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.
