CALL FOR PAPERS - IEEE Sensors Journal

IEEE Sensors Journal

Special issue on

THz Sensing: Materials, Devices and Systems

The THz frequencies encompassing 100 GHz to 10 THz offer many attractive properties for applications ranging from the characterisation of novel materials, hazard detection, high speed data communications, to radio astronomy. Recent technological advances have significantly increased the availability of photonic and electronic-based sources, as well as detectors operating at THz frequencies leading to the generation of a significant volume of scientific research. The increased availability of a wide range of sensor system components such as sources, detectors, mixers, waveguides, materials, etc is a critical in the development of this spectral range to the sophistication of the neighbouring microwave and infrared domains.

It is intended that this Special Issue of the IEEE Sensors Journal will show the state-of-the-art in THz expertise and technology dedicated to sensing problems presently accomplished by THz radiation and its potential to overcome challenges of new measurement applications. Original research contributions, tutorials and review papers are sought in THz-related areas including (but not limited to):

  • Materials
  • Devices
  • Systems
  • Applications

Solicited and invited papers shall undergo the standard IEEE Sensors Journal peer review proc­ess. All manuscripts must be submitted on-line, via the IEEE Manuscript CentralTM, see When submitting, please indicate in the “Manuscript Type” roll down menu, and also by e-mail to Ms. Alison Larkin,, that the paper is intended for the “THz Sensing…” Special Issue. Authors are particularly encouraged to suggest names of potential reviewers for their manu­scripts in the space provided for these recommen­dations in Manuscript Central. For manuscript prepara­tion and submission, please follow the guidelines in the Information for Authors at the IEEE Sensors Journal web page,
