Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will provide a comprehensive overview of the state of the art of sensors based on optical technology in the last year. The interest in sensors based on optical technology and, in particular, those based on optical fibers has been growing rapidly in recent years. High-performance sensor devices and platforms with high sensitivity and selectivity, as well as a low limit of detection values, have been proposed for physical, chemical, and biological measurands.

In this Special Issue, dedicated to optical fiber sensors, we will focus on recent advances and developments in optical fibers, and original research papers, as well as reviews, are welcome. The goal is to gather contributions on various aspects related to optical fiber sensors, namely, new types of optical fibers, optical sources, devices in relation to optical fibers and new applications.

I hope that this Special Issue will provide the scientific community with a thorough overview of the current research on optical fiber sensors.

Dr. Paulo Caldas
Guest Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2400 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.
