Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to contribute to the Special Issue “Optofluidics: From Fundamental Research to Applications” organized by the MDPI journal Micromachines (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/micromachines).

The aim of this Special Issue is to provide scientists working in the field with an up-to-date collection of papers investigating the world of micro-opto-fluidic devices. It will include both original research papers and short communications, together with invited review articles, covering the different aspects from basic research and components, up to technologically-mature integrated devices for biomedical applications.

The Special Issue will be published in the open access journal Micromachines (by MDPI AG, Basel – CH, current Impact Factor 1.833) so as to allow wide dissemination of the research results.

Thanks to a close collaboration with the Optofluidics 2017 conference (http://www.optofluidics.sg 25–28 July, 2017, Singapore), providing an international and interdisciplinary forum for researchers, the Special Issue will also include relevant papers dealing with the conference topics.
