Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2022 | Viewed by 5257
Interests: metamaterials device fabrication and characterization; optical nanomaterials; manufacture of liquid crystal tuneable plasmonic and metamaterials devices; fabrication and spectroscopic characterization of components for Terahertz (THz) applications
Recently, the interest in planar devices has growing at fast pace replacing bulky and thick components in all the electromagnetic spectrum, from optics to microwave passing from terahertz electromagnetic wave.
This interest arises from the outstanding properties of metasurfaces which are ultrathin planar materials composed of subwavelength dielectric or metallic elements. To realize novel breakthrough applications and systems, however, it is necessary to actively control and reconfigure the properties of metasurfaces by means of materials properties can be modify under external stimuli as electric, thermal, magnetic to name a few.
In this scenario, the proposed Special Issue aims to connect researchers with expertise in different technological area focusing attention on recent theoretical and experimental results.
This special issue addresses the following main topics:
- General aspect of metasurfaces
- Liquid Crystal based metasurfaces
- Flexible metasurfaces
- Phase change material based metasurfaces
- UV-Vis-NIR Metasurfaces
- Terahertz Metasurfaces
- Microwave Metasurfaces
- Semiconductor metasurfaces
- 0D-1D-2D materials metasurfaces
- Plasmonic and Dielectric metasurfaces

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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.
