The Terahertz (THz) (0.1-10 THz) electromagnetic (EM) and molecular nano communication have emerged as promising areas of research with the potential to revolutionize communication systems at the nanoscale. THz band, lying in the frequency range between microwaves and infrared light, enables high-speed, ultra-broadband EM communication with applications ranging from the software-defined metamaterials and Internet of Nano-Things (IoNT) to wireless networks on chip (WiNoC) and in-body communication. On the other hand, molecular nano communication explores the utilization of molecules as carriers for information exchange, enabling communication at the nanoscale targeting the biomedical domain with respect to Internet of Bio-Nanothings (IoBNT).
This Special Issue seeks original research papers, review articles, and case studies that address various aspects of terahertz electromagnetic and molecular nano communication. Prospective authors are invited to submit original, unpublished manuscripts on topics including, but not limited to, the following:
- Terahertz electromagnetic wave generation, propagation, and detection for nano communication purposes;
- Molecular nano communication models, protocols, and algorithms;
- Hybrid approaches combining terahertz and molecular nano communication;
- Terahertz and molecular nano communication for biomedical and healthcare applications;
- Terahertz and molecular nano communication for Internet of Things (IoT) and smart systems;
- Channel modeling, characterization, and performance analysis in terahertz and molecular nano communication;
- Novel devices, materials, and technologies for terahertz and molecular nano communication;
- Terahertz and molecular nano communication for nanoscale sensing and imaging;
- Nanonetworking protocol stack, i.e., physical, link, network, transport, and application layers;
- End-to-end nanonetwork architectures;
- Security, privacy, and integrity in terahertz and molecular nano communication systems;
- Standardization proposals and reviews.

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. Applied Sciences 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 2400 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.
