Sensors based on optical technology and in particular those based on optical fibers have been gaining importance in recent years, not only for measuring physical parameters but also biochemical parameters. The reasons for this are manifold: immunity to electromagnetic interference, small size, robustness, potential remote operation, potential intrinsic multiplexing, high sensitivity and great versatility associated with the large number of independent parameters that characterize the radiation, as is the case for intensity, wavelength, frequency, phase and polarization, all of which are potentially sensitive to physical, chemical and biological measurands. These characteristics led to the application of this technology to the fields of physical, chemical and biochemical measurement, often at a competitive cost and with an increased level of performance.
In this Special Issue, dedicated to optical fibers sensors, original research papers, as well as reviews, are welcome. The goal is to gather contributions on various aspects related to optical fiber sensors, namely new types of optical fibers, optical sources, devices in optical fibers (FBG, LPG, interferometers, etc.) and applications.
I hope that this Special Issue will provide to the scientific community with a thorough overview of the current research on optical fibers sensors.

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. 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 550 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.
