Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

During the last three decades, the technology of surface plasmon resonance (SPR) has experienced remarkable progress, and the range of applications of sensors based on surface plasmon resonance has widened from environmental protection, biotechnology, and medical diagnostics to include drug screening, food safety, and security.

A surface plasmon is an electromagnetic wave that propagates at a metal–dielectric interface. Changes in the characteristics of dielectric can be correlated with change in the propagation constant of the surface plasmon wave. Therefore, binding-induced change in the refractive index at the sensor surface would influence the light characteristics, such as amplitude, phase, polarization and spectral distribution. Generally , an SPR optical sensor consists of an optical system, a transducer which interrelates the optical and a biological recognition element interacting with targets, and an electronic system supporting the optoelectronic components of the sensor and post-processing for data. The improvement in any one element in an SPR sensing system could enhance its performance and progress the SPR sensing technology.

Therefore, we strongly encourage colleagues in this field to share their advancements in SPR technology. In particular, the topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

  • Generation of nanomaterials;
  • Fiber-optic sensors;
  • Improvement of surface plasmons;
  • Interaction between light and nanomaterials.

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. Biosensors 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 2200 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.
