Modern communication systems have traditionally exploited three parts of the electromagnetic spectrum: radio waves region, infrared region and visible region, where the evolution in these ranges is always accompanied by the appropriation of new electromagnetic phenomena to build devices with better characteristics. In these three regions great advances have been conducted in recent years. For this reason, in this issue, we call for papers concerning to the major challenges that these technologies may face in the coming years.
