Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recent advancements in quantum-enabled systems present a variety of new opportunities and challenges. Quantum-enabled optical communication promises to efficiently solve many of the existing problems in classical communication by exploiting the quantum properties of photons. Indeed, the versatility of off-the-shelf optical components and the rapidly advancing integrated photonics technology has opened the way to applications ranging from satellite quantum communications to fiber-based local area quantum networks. As technologies advance, researchers across the globe continue to work on developing local area quantum networks for applications in fields such as cryptography, telecommunications, and distributed computing, to form a quantum internet. All these developments open a wide range of potential new research areas in optical devices, communications, networks, and sensing applications, spanning both the near and long term.

This Special Issue welcomes broad research on key emerging areas, including topics such as quantum-enhanced security technologies in optical transmission systems, wavelength conversion and quantum computer/memory interfaces, quantum-enhanced receivers, quantum repeater network architectures for multi-partite entanglement distribution and teleportation, single-photon sources and single-photon detectors, quantum sensor networks, and distributed quantum applications.

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.
