Optical sensors are useful tools for detecting various target molecules with high sensitivity and selectivity even in complex sample matrix (e.g., saliva, serum, urine). As one of the leading optical sensing technologies, surface plasmon resonance sensors are well known for real time screening and monitoring analyte interactions. In recent years, the development of the fabrication and integration of nanostructures has boomed the design of the Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) sensors in a more effective and miniature way. Novel SPR sensors with different nanostructures—either as sensing substrate-like 2D materials (e.g., graphene) or signal amplification tags like gold nanoparticles—were reported. They have been demonstrated for applications including food and environment monitoring, clinical diagnostics/therapy, and homeland security protection. This Special Issue of Sensors will be dedicated to highlighting these emerging uses of SPR sensors, and presenting the latest technologies and methodologies developed in this interdisciplinary field of science. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Optical design and systems for SPR sensing
- Point-of-care SPR biosensors for theranostics
- Theoretical analysis of physics and chemistry for SPR sensing
- Proof-of-concept of sensing applications based on SPR
- Case studies and data fusion of novel SPR sensors
Both reviews and original research papers are welcome.Dr. Shuwen Zeng
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. Sensors 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 2200 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.
