Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Photonics is all around us. In a smartphone, a television or in a computer, we can find photonic cameras or photonic displays. In a printer, we can find a photonic scanner. In a home, we can also find photonic LED lighting and infrared photonic sensors of movement for protection. Thus, we can find photonics everywhere. In addition, we observe the same thing in industry. Indeed, we find photonic sensors that permit robots to see, from the apparatus of medical imaging, to the laser manufacturing of 3D components, lights for our cars, and communications through optical fibers and space in order to distribute data around the world. In summary, our present world simply works with photonics. Thus, in this Special Issue, we wish to address the latest advances in photonics located in Europe in all these fundamental and applied aspects. Therefore, it is with great pleasure that we invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. 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 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. Photonics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2400 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.

Absorption, reflection, and transmission coefficients of the hybrid structure formed by a metal film and a holographic polymer–liquid crystal grating (HPLCG) are theoretically studied in the spectral region of the HPLCG band gap. HPLCG cells consist of four alternating layers, two layers of polymer and two layers of the same liquid crystal (LC), but with different orientations of the LC director. The appearance of reflection, transmission, and absorption peaks in the HPLCG band gap due to the excitation of optical Tamm states (OTSs) at the metal film–HPLCG interface is investigated. The dependence of the spectral manifestation of OTSs on the parameters of the hybrid structure is also studied. A comparison is made with the corresponding results for the case when HPLCG cells of a hybrid structure consist of one polymer layer and one LC layer (two-layer HPLCG). Full article
