Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Interest in optical communications has increased due to their higher capacity and improved security compared to those of conventional radiofrequency (RF) techniques. However, the optical communication system is prone to multiple path effects and external factors, resulting in error codes in propagations, which can be solved by channel equalization and coding technology. At present, dimensional resources in the light wave space domain provide new opportunities for the sustainable expansion of optical communications. For example, multi-core optical fibers based on spatial arrangement have been widely used in optical communications. In addition, structured light fields with different spatial structural characteristics can also be used to improve the communication capacity in FSO (Free-Space Optical) communication systems. Typical structured light fields include orbital angular momentum (OAM) light fields, vector light fields, and Hermite Gaussian light fields. However, one of the challenges of OAM-based communications is the perturbations from an inhomogeneous medium, such as atmospheric turbulence in free space and the nonuniform transverse refractive indices in fibers. Here, we are pleased to invite global researchers to present novel solutions to the problems in current optical communications.

This Special Issue aims to collect review articles and original research papers in the field of “Novel Technology in Optical Communications”. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Fiber-optic communication;
  • OAM-based optical communications;
  • Ultraviolet communication;
  • Communication devices and systems;
  • Physical layer security;
  • Channel equalization;
  • Channel coding;
  • Multiple-input multiple-output

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. Sensors 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 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.
