Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a powerful non-invasive optical imaging technique that acquires real-time cross-sectional images with micron-scale resolution. Since its invention in 1991, OCT soon became an indispensable tool for the diagnosis and management of many eye diseases. Because of the technology's capabilities and inherent practicality, OCT continues to move into new biomedical applications including cardiovascular research, dermatology and dental diagnosis, small animal imaging and many more. In addition, with the advances in new light source (swept light source, supercontinuum light source, for example) and development in new imaging modalities (high-resolution OCT microscope, high-speed OCT angiography etc.), OCT has also expanded into non-medical application areas particularly in the non-destructive evaluation field including both off-line inspection and in-line process monitoring. This Special Issue of the journal Applied Sciences, “Optical Coherence Tomography and Its Applications” is dedicated to cover some recent advances in novel technology, as well as medical and non-medical applications of OCT.

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 2000 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.
