The Special Issue invites manuscripts that document the current state-of-the-art in Terahertz Photonics.
Terahertz science and technology, as defined as the frequency range of 0.3–30 THz, has attracted a great deal of interest owing to its potential applications. Nondestructive evaluation, bio/medical diagnosis, homeland security, and wireless communications are promising applications. Terahertz waves bridge electronics and photonics, as well as classical and quantum physics, where undeveloped research area locates. This Special Issue aims at highlighting all developments in the broad area of THz photonics. We will consider theoretical, numerical, and experimental papers that cover, but are not limited to, these topics:
(1) Advances in THz sources and detectors
(2) Progress in THz components, and sensing/imaging systems
(3) Novel THz devices and materials, such as ferroelectrics, superconductors, nanostructures, metamaterials, plasmonic materials and low- and two-dimensional materials
(4) Ultrafast carrier dynamics and THz nonlinear science, and new quantum physics in advance materials.
(5) THz applications:
- industrial inspection, and non-destructive evaluation
- defense and security
- imaging and spectroscopy for bio/medical diagnostics,
- information processing and computing
- electronics/information/broadband communications

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 1800 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.
