Special Issue "Recent Advances in Photonic Sensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2021.
Interests: My current research interests include propagation, spectral and polarization properties of optical fibers, liquid crystals and photonic (liquid) crystal fibers; optical fiber sensors systems embedded in composite materials; metamaterials, nanomaterials, and optofluidics
Photonics is closely related to the technology of generating and using light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. Photonics involves a wide range of applications of lasers, optics, solid-state lighting, fiber optics, electro-optical devices, and inter alia photonic sensors.
The aim of this Special Issue is the presentation of recent advances in photonic sensors, based on different configurations and materials that can be used in numerous and diverse fields of technology as alternate energy, manufacturing, health care, telecommunication, environmental monitoring, homeland security, and aerospace.
Applications of the photonic sensors may cover many areas, ranging from new concepts still experienced in laboratories to sensing systems to be made available on the market, even in highly differentiated sectors, such as biomedicine and biotechnology, micro- and nanotechnology, construction and engineering, alternate energy and green solutions, chemical technology, transportation, gas sensing, defense, space, and so on.
We kindly invite you to submit a manuscript(s) for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews will be more than welcome.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
