Special Issue "Intelligent Sensors and Technology for Optical Wireless Communications Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 December 2023 | Viewed by 1684
Today, 5G is defined as millimeter-wave (MMW) bands below 100 GHz, whereas 100 GHz-3 THz is categorized as a THz band in 6G. Photonics-aided MMW generation is a key technique used in fiber-wireless networks, which overcomes the bottleneck of the deployed electrical devices. The major constraint factors of the photonics-sided high-frequency MMW transmission system are a large atmosphere attenuation loss and nonlinearity that results from optoelectrical devices. Although optical wireless communication (OWC) has appealing potential, it introduces many novel signal processing challenges such as physical-layer transmission, joint sensing and communication, security, channel modeling, coding, detection and so on. Especially in 6G, the most effective approaches to modeling the nonlinear wireless behavior are those based on AI techniques. To tackle the challenges, this Special Issue seeks to introduce the latest advances in intelligent techniques of OWC. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Signal processing algorithms for OWC.
- Intelligent sensors for OWC.
- OWC propagation, channel modeling and measurement.
- OWC channel estimation, coding and detection strategies.
- OWC physical-layer transmission beyond 100 GHz.
- Joint optical millimeter/THz sensing and communication.
- Theoretical performance analysis of OWC systems.
- Pure data-driven and model-driven AI techniques for 6G OWC.

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.
