Special Issue "Photonic Crystal Laser and Related Optical Devices"
A special issue of Photonics (ISSN 2304-6732).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2019).
Photonic crystals (PhCs) are 1D, 2D or 3D periodic dielectric materials. They have interesting properties, such as photonic bandgap and slow light. 1D PhC is widely available in our society as filters, mirrors, and so on. Vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSEL) also employ 1D PhCs as Fabry–Pérot mirrors. Much research into 2D and 3D PhC has been reported over the last 30 years. However, very few devices in which 2D or 3D PhC is used are on the market. This Special Issue focuses on optical devices that utilize 2D or 3D PhC, such as photonic crystal lasers, in order to promote the applications of PhCs. Electric or mechanical devices are welcome to be presented in this issue if PhC is used. 1D PhC devices are also welcome if specific properties of the PhC are applied beyond conventional multi-layered filters or mirrors.

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 1000 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.
