Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Thirteenth International Congress on Artificial Materials for Novel Wave Phenomena – Metamaterials'2019, will comprise a 4-day Conference (16–19 September), and a 2-day Doctoral School (20–21 September). Organized by the METAMORPHOSE VI AISBL (www.metamorphose-vi.org), this Congress follows the success of Metamaterials 2007-2018 and continues the traditions of the highly successful series of International Conferences on Complex Media and Metamaterials (Bianisotropics) and Rome International Workshops on Metamaterials and Special Materials for Electromagnetic Applications and Telecommunications. The Congress will provide a unique topical forum to share the latest results of the metamaterials research in Europe and worldwide. It will bring together the engineering, physics, applied mathematics and material science communities working on artificial materials and their applications in electromagnetism/optics, acoustics/mechanics, transport, and multi-physics.

We are very glad to serve as Guest Editors of this Special Issue to be published in Photonics that will contain a selection of papers submitted and accepted at Metamaterials’2019. Its main scope is to provide a timely and broad collection of the most innovative topics discussed at the latest edition of the congress related to photonics and plasmonics. We warmly invite researchers to submit their contributions, both original research articles and review papers, to this Special Issue. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Fundamentals and applications of artificial materials and surfaces at infrared and optical frequencies;
  • Plasmonics and optical properties of metamaterials;
  • Novel optical effects enabled by metamaterials;
  • Experimental techniques and characterization of nanomaterials;
  • Biological and biomedical applications of metamaterials;
  • Metamaterials for nanoelectronics and nanophotonics;
  • Metamaterials for quantum electronics;
  • Energy harvesting and thermophotovoltaics;
  • Nanocarbon, nanotubes, graphene and bio-inspired materials

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 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 1000 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.
