Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Optical fiber interferometric sensors have been widely investigated, for instance, for use in the monitoring of temperature, strain, pressure, and most recently, for application in the detection and characterization of multiple physiological parameters.

This Special Issue will focus on the current state of the art of optical fiber interferometric sensors, covering recent technological improvements, new production methodologies and emerging applications.

Both original research papers and review articles describing the current state of the art in this research field are welcome. We hope this SI will provide you with an overview of the present status and future outlook of the aforementioned topics. 

The manuscripts should cover, but are not limited to, the following topics:

  • New and/or low-cost interferometer production methods;
  • Optical fiber Fabry–Perot-, Mach–Zehnder-, Michelson-, and Sagnac-based sensors;
  • Optical fiber interferometric-based sensing of physiological parameters;
  • New interferometric probes for biomedical applications;
  • Optical fiber interferometric systems with microfluid integration;
  • Wearable biomedical interferometric sensors;
  • Biomarker detection;
  • Low-cost, miniaturized, selective, and multiparameter optical fiber interferometric devices;
  • Advanced signal-processing techniques;
  • New interrogation techniques for interferometric sensors.

The SI also welcomes submissions reporting on interferometric sensor applications covering several biomedical areas such as dentistry, surgery, robotics, medical diagnostics and therapy, cardiovascular and chronic diseases, among others.

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. Photonics 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 2400 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.
