Special Issue "Application of Hyperspectral Imaging for Nondestructive Measurement"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2019

Hyperspectral imaging technology has recently emerged as a powerful analytical technique that uses vibrational spectroscopy for nondestructive quality measurement of various materials. The previously described spectroscopic analytical methods (Vis/NIR, MIR, Fluorescence, Raman spectroscopies, etc.) are well-established, non-invasive analytical techniques for the analysis of materials. However, these techniques are point-based scanning techniques and only examine a relatively small area of a specimen; thus, these techniques are unable to provide spatial information that is important for many material inspection applications. Sample analysis is also more convenient and fast compared with the hyperspectral imaging technique because a large number of samples are analyzed at the same time, instead of the single sampling technique used by the other spectroscopic methods. Furthermore, HSI has instrumental flexibility and can be used to collect hyperspectral data for specimens with different sizes and shapes. In addition, the spectral region collected, spatial resolution, and field of view (FOV) can be adjusted depending on the application. With these advantages and flexibility, hyperspectral imaging has been successfully adopted in a variety of research and industry environments.
This Special Issue focuses on the latest research and development of hyperspectral imaging in nondestructive measurement applications. Accordingly, papers that demonstrate novel hyperspectral imaging technology concepts for nondestructive measurement are sought. These include papers dealing with theoretical analyses, and laboratory and field studies in various industries, such as agriculture, foods, pharmaceutics, natural science, etc.
We would like to invite you to submit original research papers for the “Application of Hyperspectral Imaging for Nondestructive Measurement” Special Issue.

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.
