Special Issue "New Frontiers in Plasmonics and Metamaterials"
A special issue of Photonics (ISSN 2304-6732).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2015).
The current progress in nanophotonics is explained by the excitement of achieving enhanced near-field effects and breaking the diffraction limit for light localization and imaging. Recent years have witnessed a growing research interest in the study of plasmonic structures and photonic metasurfaces. This Special Issue is expected to boost the development of new directions in the field of plasmonics and metamaterials to foreseen ground-breaking discoveries and provide novel avenues for important applications. The elements of plasmonics are spread across disciplines, and many of the recent ideas are based on the concepts of metamaterials and metadevices. We expect that papers of this Special Issue will explore the confluence of subwavelength photonics, metamaterials concepts, quantum theory, graphene physics, and nonlinear optics, to provide an interdisciplinary platform for novel photonics applications.
Prof. Dr. Yuri S. Kivshar
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.
