Interests: localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) biosensors; surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS); chemiluminescence and electrochemiluminescence
Interests: the precise synthesis and controlled self-assembly of plasmonic nanoparticles; surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) based biosensors
Localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) is the collective oscillation of electrons at the surface of a nanostructure, which is excited by incident light of a larger wavelength than the size of the nanostructure. Coherent oscillation results in strong light scattering and a unique surface plasmon absorption spectrum. By taking into account the relationship between the LSPR signal and its influencing factors, there has been significant interest in developing high-sensitivity chemical and biological sensors based on nanostructured platforms. This Special Issue will focus on cutting-edge progress on this promising field. Both original articles and review articles are welcome regarding biosensors based on LSPR of noble metal nanoparticles.
This issue will include the following topics:
1) New strategies and approaches for preparation of noble metal nanostructures;
2) Colorimetric biosensors based on LSPR coupling;
3) LSPR based label-free biosensors;
4) Lab on a chip, miniaturization, and nanotechnology in plasmonic biosensing;
5) Noble-metal nanoparticle-based SERS biosensors.

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 2700 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.
