Special Issue in Applied Sciences: Distributed Optical Fiber Sensors
Distributed optical fiber sensors are receiving an ever-increasing interest as they offer the unique and unparalleled ability of mapping diverse physical fields along the area span by an optical fiber. Up to a million of sensing points can be interrogated with a single distributed optical fiber sensor, covering distances than can range from some tens of meters to a few hundreds of kilometers, with a spatial resolution of meters down to millimeters.
This Special Issue aims at collecting both original and review papers on all aspects of distributed optical fiber sensing research, including (but not limited to) Rayleigh, Brillouin and Raman scattering theoretical aspects (e.g. inverse scattering problems, polarization issues, noise modelling, nonlinear effects), novel interrogation schemes (e.g. time, frequency- and correlation-domain interrogation methods, etc.), laboratory and field applications (small- and large-scale experiments), signal processing in distributed optical fiber sensors, specialty fibers, coatings and cables for distributed sensing, etc.
Contributions are invited from the most reputable groups active in this research field. Regular contributions are also welcome.

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.
