Interests: plasmonic biosensors; nanophotonic devices; liquid crystal optics and devices; spectropolarimetric imaging, interference microscopy, biomedical optics
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Special Issue in Sensors: Advances in Plasmonic Sensing
Special Issue in Materials: New Advances in Modeling, Simulation and Analysis of Optical Materials
This Special Issue will be devoted to optical biosensors based on nanostructures in thin film form, including but not limited to: nanoparticles dispersed on substrates, periodic or random arrays on substrates, sculptured thin films, nanoislands, bioinspired nanostructures, and porous materials. Detection modes can be spectroscopic, angular, spectral, polarimetric, extinction, phase, imaging, photoacoustic, surface enhanced- fluorescnce (SEF), -Raman (SERS), -infrared absoption(SEIRA), etc. All types of application domains are acceptable.

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. 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 1800 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.
