Interests: optical communication; semiconductor lasers; fiber optics; nonlinear optics
Emerging applications such as cloud-based storage services, high definition streaming services, machine-to-machine communications, and 5G radio networks are fueling the need for faster, low latency and bandwidth-efficient optical networks. The requirements of these applications include increased capacity and reduced cost, power consumption, footprint, and complexity. Therefore, there is a growing trend in developing integrated optoelectronic devices to meet the above-mentioned requirements.
The need for rapid and accurate detection of analytes is also increasing for environment monitoring, food and drug quality control, and medical diagnosis. Significant advances, driven by the need to reduce cost, increase portability, and provide rapid results, have been made in the field of sensing by leveraging integrated photonics.
For this Special Issue, you are invited to submit research papers on advances in integrated photonics for communication and sensing applications. Specific areas of interest in the topic include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Photonics for massive connectivity;
- Short reach optical interconnects;
- Optical access technologies;
- Nanophotonics and plasmonic;
- Photonic sensors.

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. 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 1600 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.
