Special Issue Information

Advances in the field of adaptive optics have produced an expanding toolkit for a growing number of photonics applications, including laser beam propagation, signal processing, vision science, astronomy, and other areas. Innovation in laser adaptive optics is a key to solving various scientific and technological problems, from improving the performance of laser systems to enabling new applications. This Special Issue is focused on a wide range of topics, including but not limited to the following:

Adaptive optic components and tools;

Wavefront sensing;

Control algorithms;

Beam shaping and control;



Optical communications;

Propagation through turbulent and turbid media.

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.
