Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has become an indispensable tool with the capability of offering in vivo, non-invasive, micron-resolution, dye-free, and 3D imaging. It has now been widely used in clinics and research to image living animals and humans. OCT works as a Michelson Interferometer where the light backscattered from biological tissue interferes with the light traveling in the reference arm. For time-domain OCT (TD-OCT), the reference mirror moves periodically to scan along the axial direction. For Fourier-domain OCT (FD-OCT), the interference is captured either by a spectrometer in spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT) or by a photodetector in a swept-source OCT (SS-OCT). The emerging extensions of OCT include OCT angiography (OCTA), polarization-sensitive OCT (PS-OCT), Doppler OCT, full-field OCT (FF-OCT), and OCT oximetry. These technologies hold great potential in ophthalmology, dermatology, neuroscience, and other fields. Accordingly, this Special Issue seeks to showcase research papers, communications, and review articles that focus on novel methodological developments and bioengineering applications of OCT.

We look forward to receiving your submissions.

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. Micromachines 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 2600 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.
