Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Journal of Imaging welcomes submissions to a feature issue on “Digital holography: Development and Application.” Digital holography, whose foundations were laid in the 20th century, has adapted and evolved into a remarkable area of research during the past few decades. The advancements in the area of signal processing, computers, computational optics, and deep learning have led to the conversion of the bulky, heavy and slow digital holographic imagers into compact, lightweight and faster ones. Consequently, digital holography has revolutionized the area of imaging and has become one of the most widely applied technologies in countless imaging systems. The principle of digital holography has been applied in data storage, 3D displays and also art.

There have been many useful Special Issues on the topic of digital holography published across various journals, and what makes this Special Issue different is that this Special Issue offers a wide scope, covering all the areas of digital holography, and also includes different types of submissions such as research, tutorials, perspectives and review articles. In addition, the Special Issue will consist of roadmap articles on incoherent imaging technologies, holographic display technologies and holographic tomography covering the latest developments, current state-of-the-art methods, challenges and future perspectives. Please contact the guest editors if you are interested in contributing to the roadmap articles on the above topics.

The Special Issue covers all the areas of digital holography including, but not limited to, incoherent imaging, Fresnel incoherent correlation holography (FINCH), optical scanning holography, coded aperture imaging, compressive sensing, holographic display technologies, fluorescence microscopy, optical instrumentation, computational optics, deep learning, computer generated holography, biomedical imaging, holographic tomography, synthetic aperture imaging, quantitative phase imaging, spectral imaging, imaging through scattering layers and turbid media, holographic optical elements, ghost imaging, metrology, 3D imaging, polarization holography and ultrafast holographic imaging technologies.

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. Journal of Imaging 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 1600 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.
