Multimode fibres (MMFs) are at the core of numerous areas of development and research. While for many years, MMF was predominantly employed as a power-efficient cable for short-distance speckled light transport, its complex transmission properties can now be overcome and exploited with modern technologies. This Special Issue looks at the latest trends in MMFs supporting multiple transverse modes and/or are equipped with multiple (multimodal) cores, known as multicore fibre MCFs. The range of applications for this material include, and are not limited to: communications, biomedical imaging, spectroscopy and complex lasers.
This Special Issue aims to gather original research and review articles in different stages of development, from new challenges and theories to approaches, applications, devices and systems and networks.
Potential topics include:
- Space division multiplexing (SDM) networks;
- Transmitters, receivers and equalizations for SDM;
- Wavefront shaping techniques for MMF applications;
- MMF endoscopes;
- MMF amplifiers;
- MMF lasers;
- Characterization of MMFs;
- Techniques overcoming nonlinear effects of light transmission in MMF;
- Novel approaches driven by artificial intelligence;
- Mode decomposition methods;
- Quantum transmission through MMF;
- Optical computing using MMF.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. 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.
