Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

To meet the rising demand for high-speed data services, wireless networks must exploit the available frequency spectrum more efficiently. One key limit to spectrum utilization efficiency involves the current practice of half-duplex communication, in which a node either transmits or receives a signal in a single-channel usage. This separation prevents self-interference, which has frequently been seen as an insurmountable technical problem. Promoted by the popularity of small-cell wireless systems, recent works have provided experimental evidence and methodologies for full-duplex communication, in which a node transmits and receives signals at the same time and on the same frequency band. Full-duplex communications have the potential to improve the attainable spectral efficiency and throughput and reduce latency.

This Special Issue will provide a synthesized source of recent research results and to serve as a springboard for future work in Full-Duplex Wireless Communications. The possible topics include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Advanced self-interference cancellation techniques for full-duplex
  • Advanced antenna and transceiver designs for full-duplex
  • Full-duplex reconfigurable intelligent (meta)surfaces
  • Full-duplex techniques with wireless power and energy harvesting
  • Full-duplex for simultaneous communication and sensing
  • Full-duplex millimeter-wave/THz systems
  • Multiple input multiple output full-duplex transceiver design
  • Performance analysis of full-duplex transceivers, systems, and networks
  • Physical layer security and full-duplex techniques
  • Resource allocation and user scheduling in full-duplex networks
  • Stochastic geometry for full-duplex systems
  • Experimental evaluation of full-duplex transceivers and networks

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2200 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.
