Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The main topic of this Special Issue is optical fiber biosensors as miniaturized devices for sensitive and specific detection of chemical and biological samples in different fields, including biomedical research and applications, life sciences, healthcare, food safety, and environmental monitoring.

Optical fiber biosensors have several important features, including low loss, which enables long-distance signal transmission; low cost, which enables manufacturing disposable biosensors to effectively avoid cross-contamination; anti-electromagnetic interference abilities, which enable detection in environments with strong electromagnetic interference such as that caused by nuclear magnetic resonance; and good compactness and biocompatibility, which enable in vivo detection. Moreover, optical fiber biosensors can facilitate various sensing functions through different sensing principles and structure designs, as specific detection of target molecules can be achieved through surface functionalization.

Any contributions of a paper related to fiber optical biosensors are welcome to this Special Issue, including new trends in the design of biosensors, new methods to improve the sensor performance, biological detection applications of the biosensors, and optimization of optical fiber detection system.

If you are interested in submitting a manuscript, or if you have any questions, please contact us.

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.
