Photonics as the science of photon has a decisive influence on the recent scientific and technology achievements. It includes aspects of photon generation and photon-matter interaction. Although it finds many applications in the whole optical range of the wavelengths, most solutions operates in the visible and infrared range. Since the laser invention – source of the highly coherent optical radiation, optical measurements have become a perfect tool for highly precise and accurate measurements. Such measurements have additional advantages of non-contact and fast rate suitable for in-process metrology. However, their extremely precision is ultimately limited by e.g. noise of both lasers and photodetectors.
The Special Issue of the Applied Science is devoted to cutting-edge uses of optical sources, detectors and optoelectronics systems in numerous fields of science and technology (e.g. industry, environment, healthcare, telecommunication, security and space). The aim is to provide the state-of-the-art of photonic technology for precision metrology, and to identify directions for its future development. This issue focuses on metrology principles and measurement instrumentation in optical technology to solve challenging engineering problems.
Technical topics include (but are not limited):
- optical imaging and reflectometry
- interferometry and spectroscopy
- radiometry and photometry
- remote and in-situ sensing
- optoelectronic sensors and smart-sensors
- optical sensors for robots and unmanned systems
- industrial optical measurements
- high resolution optical metrology
- fiber-optic measurements
- optical frequency metrology and optical clocks
- optical sources and detectors
- photonic metrological technology for science, environment, medicine, security, telecommunication, and space.

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 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 2300 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.
