Optical methods are non-invasive tools that have allowed the development of a large number of sensors for quantitatively and qualitatively determining the components of analytes of interest in many fields of application including pharmaceutical research, medical diagnostics, environmental monitoring, agriculture, industry, food safety and security. In the last years, advances in experimental and data analysis techniques have enabled the development of new sensing schemes and devices characterized by superior working parameters (very low detection limit, high specificity and sensitivity) and innovative applicative approaches. The aim of this special issue is to offer an overview of the recent advances in the use of optical methods for biomedical and biotechnological applications. With this aim, original research papers, as well as review articles, will be published to show the diversity of the new developments in these areas and their wide dissemination in these fields. If you require clarifications, or wish to discuss your submission in advance, we encourage you to contact us. We look forward to and welcome your participation in this Special Issue.

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 1800 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.
