There is a high demand for biophotonic sensors in applications that include the military, homeland security, industrial processes, and biomedical, as well as a wide range of other applications. “Biophotonic Sensors and Applications” focused on biophotonic sensors, based on novel biomaterials, micro- and nano-photonics, waveguide devices, and fiber optic devices. Biophotonic technology expands sensing concepts to include the detection of chemical and biologically toxic agents, as well as the monitoring of biological processes. Biophotonic sensors are based on a broad range of photonic technologies.
The aims of this Special Issue is to present novel and innovative applications of biophotonic sensors and devices, which are related to photonic principles, engineering, and technology, which are relevant for critical problems in the fields of medicine, biology, and biotechnology. For examples, the Si waveguide and optical fibers can detect label-free bimolecular, which improved the sensitivity of the detection. Fundamental study of fluorescent nanoparticles, quantum dots, plasmonic materials, or other materials are applied for the macromolecular properties of living cells.
The scope of this Special Issue will cover concepts that use optical fiber or waveguide technology, but is not limited to this technology. Combining biological recognition probes and the excellent sensitivity of laser-based optical detection, biophotonic sensors are capable of detecting and differentiating bio-constituents of complex systems in order to provide unambiguous identification and accurate quantization.
