Infrared thermography (IRT), as a non-destructive evaluation method, has been applied for the last five decades with great success in a broad spectrum of disciplines. Due to the continuous advances in sensor technology and electronics, IRT has evolved into a major, accurate, versatile, and well-established method for various applications. It has been employed in engineering, biomedicine, nuclear technology, physics, veterinary science, arts, cultural heritage, etc. Defect detection, thermal performance of buildings, monitoring of damage, diagnosis of medical conditions, art authenticity evaluation, assessment of culture heritage conditions, and many other applications have led the scientific community to develop and advance numerous methodologies based on infrared thermography, such as pulsed phase, lock-in, step, ultrasound, eddy current, thermo-electrical lock-in thermography, etc. This Special Issue of Applied Sciences focuses on the recent advances and applications of infrared thermography in a variety of disciplines. The aim of this issue is to attract research involving novel and advanced IRT methodologies or/and new applications that have an impact on the scientific community. Manuscripts that combine IRT with other non-destructive methodologies, as long as IRT is the main method, are also welcome.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1500 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.
