Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will focus on intriguing sensing approaches for developing probes used in bio/chemical sensing. These methods include the utilization of plastic optical fibers (POFs), specialty optical fibers, metasurfaces, and optofluidics. For instance, there is a significant interest in using innovative POF-based extrinsic or intrinsic schemes, such as “MathMaterial interfaces” combined with POF probes for machine and deep learning in bio/chemical sensing approaches. Moreover, using different receptor layers combined with optical probes to detect specific substances in different application fields is equally intriguing. This Special Issue wants to collect research manuscripts or review manuscripts about POF-based platforms, metasurface-based sensors, optofluidic-based sensor systems, and biosensors or chemical sensors implemented by extrinsic or intrinsic optical fiber schemes and using specific (biomimetic, biological, or chemical) receptor layers or machine and deep learning approaches.

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. 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 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.
