Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The combination of optical technology progress and novel analytical methodologies allows promising applications to be developed and optimized in the fields of clinical diagnosis, optical sensing, nanomaterial-based technologies, bioanalysis, integrated optics, and renewable energies. Holographic interferometry and holographic lithography are useful optical techniques to develop elements for such applications.

Today, advanced materials are of great interest to bring these optical and photonic elements into our daily lives. Photopolymers, photoresists, hydrogels, and those based on nanoparticles, transition metals, ionic liquid crystals, chalcogenides, or azobenzenes are some of the most used materials in holography. Their design, functionalization, and manufacture are key factors in obtaining specific properties for real applications.

The aim of this Special Issue is to collect both original research articles and review papers on the most recent developments regarding the modeling, fabrication, design, or characterization of different optical systems, with special emphasis on holographic elements and materials for obtaining sensors and biosensors, solar concentrators, and novel waveguides. Papers related to clinical assays or diagnosis of the COVID-19 virus are welcome. Reviews describing the possible role of holography in such virus are also invited for publication.

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.

Most 3D augmented reality, near-eye displays suffer from a low field of view. Leaky-mode lithium niobate devices are often used to steer, multiplex, or otherwise control the path of light in a system. Such devices are ideal candidates for creating such displays, and, in this paper, we demonstrate a path to increasing their view angle to 180° by curving the substrate, which will steer the output light toward the user’s eye. We also model the tradeoff between field of view, allowable interaction length, and draw distance for these curved leaky-mode devices. Full article
