Special Issue "Singular Optics"
A special issue of Photonics (ISSN 2304-6732).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2022) | Viewed by 4914
Interests: geometric phase in optics; optical beams in high-order modes; singular optics; photon entanglement; quantum interference with correlated photons
We invite submissions to the Special Issue “Singular Optics”. The aim of this Special Issue is to present research works relating to the creation, manipulation, propagation, and detection of complex light beams that contain optical singularities. These may include optical vortices, caustics, knots, c-points, c-lines, Mobius polarization, or other related phenomena. This also includes works on the interaction of complex light with media via novel optical forces or interactions such as exchange of linear, spin, or orbital angular momentum and the manipulation of matter with light patterns.

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.
