Plasmonics and Nanoplasmonics biosensors are the most successful optical biosensors. Continuous progress is materials, nanostructures and transducers together with advanced biofunctionalization techniques, new receptors and applications employing real samples, makes them as the most studied and developed biosensors. A myriad of companies have been generated in the last years around this powerful plamonic biosensing technology.
The aim of this special issue is to bring together innovative developments at the transducer schemes, nanostructures, miniaturization, biofunctionalization and applications of plasmonics and nanoplasmonics biosensors. Papers addressing the wide aspects range of this technology are sought, including but not limited to recent developments in: new transducers schemes in plasmonic and nanoplasmonics, hybrid devices, improvement of sensitivity, miniaturization and multiplexing capabilities, competitive biofunctionalization techniques, and real-life application.
Both review articles and original research papers are solicited. There is particular interest in papers concerning new applications in real life where plasmonics and nanoplasmonics could provide enhanced capabilities that cannot be obtained using other approaches.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
