Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Optical communication is the information superhighway providing the conduits over which broadband data are delivered worldwide. Hundreds of millions of kilometers of deployed optical fiber interconnect continents, nations, cities, and neighborhoods, and are now reaching private homes. The advent of optical communication has been enabled by a suite of complementary optical subsystems that are pivotal to the operation and management of these networks. These optical microsystems directly interact with the optical signal and—through functionality afforded by design—are able to filter, switch, attenuate, and adapt the optical communication channels carried by the network. Optical communication deals with the problems in those fields of scientific and engineering research appertaining to the development and application of the technology of lasers and photoelectronics.

This Special Issue aims at encouraging leading scientists to contribute with their latest advances and prospects in optical communication, laser technology, and optical and electronic technology but also welcomes the submission of research presenting novel solutions that could help to improve the efficiency and quality of optical communication networks.

Dr. Fan Zhang

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 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. Micromachines 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.
