The pursuit of wide bandgap semiconductor photonic devices has led to a series of fundamental breakthroughs, especially the Nobel prize winning blue light-emitting diodes (LEDs) based on group III-Nitride materials. For shorter wavelengths, wide bandgap semiconductor ultraviolet (UV) photonic devices have been explored for both photon emission and detection. For the past decades, developments have been carried out for wide bandgap semiconductor photonic devices on novel materials, device physics, active region design, and device fabrication/packaging.
This Special Issue focuses on the most recent advances in the field of wide bandgap semiconductor photonic devices such as LEDs, lasers or photodetectors. Topics will include, but are not limited to development of advanced device physics; research of novel wide bandgap materials including 2D materials; exploration of nanostructured active regions such as nanowires or quantum dots; as well as study of non-classical device concepts. New methods of fabricating semiconductor photonic devices to achieve higher output power and quantum efficiency are also 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 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 1400 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.
