Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With LISA as the flagship mission for ESA and NASA and many other efforts involving either laser or atom interferometry proposed, space-borne missions face new challenges with respect to gravitational wave detection. This Special Issue aims to collect research focusing on several related topics: mission design, including satellite constellations and orbit transfer; algorithms for the synthesis of equal-arm interferometric detectors; stray forces and torques on free falling test masses; and space weather parasitic applications.

Dr. Valerio Ferroni
Guest Editor

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. Universe is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. 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.
