Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The measurement of flow or velocity is important for many applications in chemical engineering, in the energy and aerospace industries, in medical equipment technology, in the aviation industry, in high-voltage transmission networks, in meteorology, in environmental monitoring, and in indoor climate control. In recent years, flow measurement using optical-fibre-device-based conventional hot-wire anemometers (HWAs) has been proposed, as have optical configurations based on hot-wire anemometry. As research in this field continues to mature, it is crucial to consolidate and share the latest breakthroughs, insights, and innovations.

This Special Issue aims to provide a comprehensive overview of state-of-the-art developments in, understanding of, and diverse applications of optic hot-wire anemometers, fostering further research and addressing the challenges faced by modern optical fiber systems.

In this Special Issue dedicated to optic hot-wire anemometers, original research papers as well as reviews are welcome.

Dr. Paulo Caldas

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. Fibers 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 2000 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.
