Special Issue "Optical Sensors and Gauges Based on Plasmonic Resonance"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2021.
Plasmonic sensors are the object of continuous, dynamic, fundamental, and applied research today.
Every day, sensors based on surface plasmon resonance (SPR) are used more and more in a great variety of new applications and developments, for instance, in engineering, physics, chemistry, biotechnology, environment, medicine, etc. They have been shown to have a high sensitivity and resolution and to be able to integrate easily since they are in the dimensions of nano-optics.
In this Special Issue, both theoretical and experimental research will be considered, provided they offer new knowledge or substantial improvements in the field of SPR. In more detail, articles should describe new detection techniques or substantial improvements over an existing one or a major new application of an existing method. All types of plasmonic sensors will be considered in applications (physical sensors, chemical sensors, biological sensors, environmental sensors, etc.), sensor elements (new materials, new combinations of materials, dopants, new structures, etc.), plasmonic structures, functionalization protocols for metallic surfaces, or any other innovation in the field of plasmonic sensors. Due to the pandemic and the rapid proliferation of COVID-19, research on SPR sensors related to the detection of SARS-CoV-2 will also be considered.
An essential factor in terms of acceptance of a submitted manuscript will be the innovation it brings, as well as its potential for practical applications.
I encourage you to contribute to this Special Issue through research, design, development, and applications outlined in articles that demonstrate the most recent advances in plasmonic sensors with new scientific knowledge, designs, and their practical applications.

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.
