Microwaves are a form of non-ionizing radiation with wavelengths and frequencies ranging from 1m to 1 mm and 300 MHz to 300 GHz, respectively. RF/microwave systems are essential in all current wireless communication and a wide range of applications such as industries, military, households, accelerators, communication, astronomy, spectroscopy, and the medical profession. It is not an overstatement to say that RF/microwave technologies impact every area of our lives; they are everywhere, from the wireless doorbell to keyless entrance into our automobiles, from cooking to industrial heating, from cell phones to computer systems, and from medical to space technology. This massive penetration of RF/microwave systems in our modern life has been facilitated by large and quick technical advancements at many levels. If the microwave power exceeds the peak power of 100 MW it is known as high power microwave (HPM). Developing high-power microwave technology might help with a variety of applications, including space and satellite missions, increasing the detection range of radar technology, communication systems, power beaming, linear collider, fusion heating, electronic warfare, and serving as a nonlethal weapon in military use. Unfortunately, the majority of HPM sources generate microwaves with low device efficiency, which is why boosting efficiency is an ongoing subject of research in this issue.
This Special Issue of the MDPI journal Electronics entitled "Advanced RF, Microwave engineering, and high-power microwave sources" invites innovative papers, with a particular emphasis on current advances in the analysis, design, implementation, designing, and measurement of RF and microwave circuits and sources. A wide range of studies based on RF, microwave, and wireless technologies, such as RF transceivers, power dividers/combiners, antennas, wireless power transfer, energy harvesting, high power microwave generation, particle-in-cell simulation, microwave mode analysis, RF plasma, pulsed power technologies, vacuum tubes, millimeter-waves, terahertz sources, and so on, are of interest of this issue. Authors are encouraged to submit both regular research articles and well-written review articles.

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. Electronics 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).
