Symmetry-related properties in condensed matter systems provide the foundation of photonics for controlling lightwaves in optical communications and signal processing. Electro-optic effect of ionic atoms in non-centrosymmetric dielectric crystal and electro-refraction effect in centrosymmetric crystalline silicon, for instance, have been key items for optical signal generation in high-speed optical communications. The nonreciprocal magneto-optic effect plays essential roles in the magneto-optical memory in storage and computing and the optical isolator in laser application. Photonic integration platforms on silicon and III-V semiconductors enable versatile optoelectronic circuits in ultrasmall footprints. Further, the photonic integration platforms allow photonic devices consisting of artificial structures such as photonic crystals, metamaterials and plasmons which reveal topological effects in the propagation of lightwaves, which will open up a new arena in photonics.

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. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2400 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.
