Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to welcome you to submit your work for this Special Issue of Crystal on “Advanced Research of Silicon Photonics and Optoelectronics Devices”.

Silicon Photonics has finally been able to achieve a wide diffusion, making it one of the major technologies of the future. Several products have hit the market in many fields, from communication devices to interconnect, optical computing, sensors, and biosensors. However, many challenges are still holding back Silicon Photonics from expressing its full potential: laser integration, component density, power consumption, limited bandwidth, non-linearities, and integration are among those challenges. Research in this field has never stopped proposing new solutions, such as looking for new materials, novel devices and circuits, and new architectures that leverage the potential of working with photons. With this Special Issue on Advanced Research of Silicon Photonics and Optoelectronics Devices, we want to share and highlight the most recent results for Silicon Photonics and Optoelectronic devices, ranging from designs, fabrication, and experimental demonstrations. Original research work, letters, and review papers based on theoretical, numerical, and experimental data are welcome in this Special Issue.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Silicon Photonics
  • Photonic integrated circuits
  • Optoelectronic devices
  • Advanced materials for photonics and optoelectronic devices
  • Communications and interconnect
  • Optical computing
  • Free-space communications
  • Photonic integration and packaging
  • High-density photonic circuits

We look forward to receiving your proposal!

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. Crystals 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 2600 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.
