Special Issue "Biomedical Photoacoustic and Photothermal Sensing and Imaging"
A special issue of Bioengineering (ISSN 2306-5354).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2018).
Photoacoustic (PA) and photothermal (PT) phenomena are based on the absorption of electromagnetic radiation and the subsequent generation of heat. In the case of PA, a modulated thermal source generates acoustic waves. Signals from the absorbing molecules can be obtained with spectroscopic specificity and traced back to the point of origin, enabling a high spatial resolution. The according experimental techniques are, therefore, increasingly used to investigate bioengineering issues. Especially biological, medical or diagnostic applications are targeted by current research.
In order to offer a publication platform for peers working in this field, the MDPI journal, Bioengineering, is dedicating a Special Issue to biomedical photoacoustics and photothermal techniques and is asking for your valuable contribution. The special issue will encompass a broad range of PA/PT techniques, including recent advances in instrumentation for both sensing and imaging.
Topics include but are not limited to:
- Photoacoustic sensing and imaging
- Photothermal sensing and imaging
- Radiation sources for PA/PT
- Acoustic/thermal sensors for PA/PT
- Signal processing algorithms for PA/PT
- Image reconstruction algorithms for PA/PT
- Thermal lens applications
- Thermoacoustics applications
- Laser-generated ultrasound
We are looking forward to receiving your contributions for this Special Issue of Bioengineering.

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. Bioengineering is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
