Special Issue "Silicon Photonics Components and Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2017)
It is my pleasure to invite you to contribute to the Special Issue of Applied Sciences that will be dedicated to Silicon Photonics. New research results submissions (both as short letters or full-length papers, and dealing with both experimental and theoretical analyses) are welcome, and critical reviews of results already reported in the literature are specially solicited.
Silicon Photonics emerged in the last decade as the almost “natural evolution” of the miniaturized optical components. At the state of the art, even if Silicon has not cancelled the use of discrete optical components and if it cannot compete with other materials for specific applications, it is nevertheless impossible to ignore the relevance of the Silicon Photonics field in the current photonics research. The first field where Silicon-Photonics established as a key technology is that related to short-distance optical communication system, but nowadays the developed technologies allow considering the use of Silicon-Photonics also for completely different applications, ranging from gas and liquid sensing to biological analyses.
The aim of this Special Issue is to put together a collection of papers covering different applications (so as to offer a broad panorama of the possible Silicon Photonics purposes) and highlighting the most recent scientific discoveries and trends in this continuously and rapidly evolving field.

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 papers will be 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. Applied Sciences 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 1400 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.
