Special Issue "Advances in Nanotechnology for RF and Terahertz"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2023 | Viewed by 825
Interests: high-frequency engineering (devices, circuits, packaging, measurements)
Recently, considerable RF R and Ds in both industry and academia have been moving towards millimeter-wave, sub-THz, and THz regimes. There has been great potential observed using recent nanodevices, such as Si CMOS, SiGe HBT, III-V devices (HEMTs, HBTs), 2-dimensional nanodevices, and nano optical devices, to realize integrated circuits for low-power consumption, array implementations, and higher output power. However, lots of researchers are still investigating the technical feasibilities as to whether these frequencies could be practically deployed for commercial purposes in the near future. Significant motivations behind these ambitious R and Ds are the exploitations of such high frequencies for next-generation mobile technologies, 6G, and high-precision radar and sensor applications. Through intensive and concentrated efforts, technical bottlenecks have been identified, overcome, and gradually improved, e.g., output power. In addition, packaging is of great concern for ensuring low cost, maintaining reproducible RF performances. Several different packaging materials and concepts have been reported and demonstrated successfully. Nevertheless, a path for commercialization seems some distance away, with respect to the degree of integration, cost, footprint, and reproducible RF performances, etc.
This Special Issue will include various multi-disciplinary efforts in both electronics and optics to make millimeter-wave, sub-THz, and THz technologies key enablers for next-generation mobile, radar, and sensor technologies. We will not limit submissions to those areas only, so a broad ranges of R and D regarding these frequencies will be considered for publication in order to open a public door for next-generation technologies using nano-scale devices.

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. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
