Special Issue "Optomechanics: Science and Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
This Special Issue is devoted to publishing recent advancements in optomechanics, which investigates the interaction between photons and mechanical motions. There have been many remarkable developments in optomechanics recently. Quantum behaviors have been observed in different optomechanical systems, including nanofabricated resonators, optically levitated nanoparticles, and LIGO’s 40-kilogram mirrors. Optomechanical systems have also found essential applications in acceleration and rotation sensing, precision measurements, quantum state transduction, and beyond.
This Special Issue brings worldwide experts together to discuss the latest research in all fields of optomechanics. Topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Cavity optomechanics;
- Levitated optomechanics;
- Superfluid optomechanics;
- Optomechanical crystals;
- Optomechanics with 1D and 2D materials;
- Optomechanical transduction;
- Optomechanical sensing;
- Spin optomechanics;
- Hybrid optomechanical devices.

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.
