Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Interest in utilizing quantum dots (QDs) within all types of sensing and imaging applications continues to grow nearly unabated. We have been generously asked by Sensors to guest edit a special issue that focuses on and reflects the vibrant research ongoing in this area.

We invite manuscripts for this forthcoming special issue that describe all aspects pertinent to sensing with quantum dots. This includes reviews that provide a current or critical overview of the state of the art in a particular QD application such as immunoassays, imaging, and the like or alternatively a signal transduction modality such as FRET, direct fluorescence or electrochemical detection. Reviews that focus on many related topics such as synthesizing QDs for sensing along with bioconjugation and characterization of QD sensor assemblies are also welcomed. Similarly, original research papers that describe all aspects of utilizing QDs in sensing whether the targets are biological (protein, DNA) or abiotic (ions or physical parameters such as temperature) are also of interest. If you have a preliminary idea or suggestion you would like to discuss beforehand, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to and welcome your participation in this special issue.
