Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Due to the huge impact of the COVID-19 epidemic, people are paying tremendous attention to health and biomedicine. Optoelectronic technologies are playing an important role in monitoring, detection and diagnosis of COVID-19, convalescence, and healthcare for the aging population, for which is critical to have advanced optoelectronic sensors with high performance. Innovative optoelectronic sensors for health care, medicine, and wellbeing have thus attracted a great deal of attention in many fields, such as materials and optoelectronic sensors, biomedical engineering, biomedical optics, instrumentation, intelligence hardware, optoelectronics, computer science, medical robots, hospital managements, and healthy building. Innovative optoelectronic sensors, sensing technologies, and sensing system, which are compatible or implantable for convalescence instruments or medical robots, are facing increasing demand for dysfunctional and aging people, patients, healthcare workers, and medical staff. From simple biophotoic sensors in healthcare to intelligent medical robots, fast and timely probing of health dangers such as virus and bacterial, accurate detection, and early warning of health or disease conditions for people, interacting with different living scenarios and environments, represent demanding requirements.

The aim of this Special Issue is to collect up-to-date advances on optoelectronic sensors and sensing systems for healthcare, clinics, biological safety, healthy building, and environment. High-quality research articles, short communications, as well as reviews, are welcome. Of special interest are research works that seek to address recent developments in small-size, wearable, high-sensitivity, and fast optoelectronic sensors or sensing systems targeting biomedicine, their fusion into COVID-19, monitoring, diagnosis, medical robots, brain–computer interfaces, sensing technology and algorithms, sensing mathematics and calibration, reliability testing, novel strategies in handling issues in on-human applications, state-of-the-art applications, innovative data analysis technologies on sensed data in the biomedicine framework, as well as relevant prospects in terms of opportunities and challenges.

Submissions are welcomed in, but not limited to, the following and/or related topics:

  • New materials of optoelectronic sensors;
  • Novel technologies changing materials to advanced optoelectronic sensors;
  • Novel sesning technologies for the COVID-19 epidemic, health, and clinics;
  • Printed, flexible, biodegradable, and biocompatible optoelectronics;
  • Sensor devices;
  • Novel optoelectronics for brain activity monitoring and brain–computer interfaces;
  • Sensors and systems for aging and hysical rehabilitation;
  • Wearable and implantable optoelectronic sensors;
  • Optoelectronic sensors and optoelectronics fot healthy building and enviorment;
  • Application of optoelectronic sensors in health/medical devices and robots;
  • Reliability testing and calibration of the above sensors and systems;
  • Algorithm and mathmatics in applications in sensing and beyond;
  • Issues and strategies in on-human applications of the above sensors;
  • Innovative data analysis technologies in the above scope.

Refractive index resolution is an important indicator for a wavelength interrogation surface plasmon resonance sensor, which can be affected by signal-to-noise ratio. This paper investigates the impact of spectral signal-to-noise ratio on a surface plasmon resonance sensor. The effects of different spectral powers and noises are compared and verified through simulation and experiments. The results indicate that the optimal resonance wavelength is changed and the refractive index resolution can even be nearly twice as good when the spectral signal-to-noise ratio is increased. The optimal resonance wavelength can be found by changing the spectral power distribution or noise. Full article
