Optics and photonics are among the key technologies of our time and offer the potential for novel applications in areas as diverse as optical measurement, sensing and analytics, monitoring, biomedical imaging, and diagnostics, as well as communication technology, to name some of the most prominent ones. These applications demand a high degree of control over the light fields and benefit significantly from concepts based on micro- and nanooptics and integration technology. The new capabilities lead to novel optical systems with enhanced functionality and unprecedented sensitivity and specificity, which are attractive for a wide range of applications previously not accessible. This Special Issue aims to provide an overview of some of the most recent development and exciting application areas in optics and photonics, indicating the broad multifaceted potential for the future. Articles covering novel optical concepts and systems as well as insights achieved in applications are invited.
Individual topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Integrated micro- and nano-optic concepts and devices
- Wearable optics
- Printed optics
- Surface plasmon resonance sensors
- Optofluidic measurement
- Distributed sensing
- Fiber optic systems and sensing
- Optical analytics, metrology, and spectroscopy
- Medical diagnostics, imaging, and monitoring
- Optical communication systems and technology

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 1800 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.
