Special Issue "Recent Advances in Fiber Bragg Grating Sensing"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 December 2016).
Interests: fiber Bragg gratings; (bio)chemical optical fiber sensors; polarization-assisted sensing; optical fiber plasmonics
Interests: optical fiber sensors; biochemical sensors; tilted fiber grating theory and devices; surface-plasmon effects and devices; optofluidics; optical microresonators and non-linear fiber optics
This Special Issue will focus on all aspects of fundamental and applied research related to the fiber Bragg grating sensing field. Papers that focus on the design and experimental validation of physical, mechanical, chemical and biomedical sensors in any kind of optical fiber, as well as papers focusing on the results of sensor field testing in these areas, are all welcome.
The goal of this Special Issue is to provide a broad platform for publishing, in the form of regular and review papers, the numerous up-to-date and multidisciplinary advances that are currently being achieved in the continuously-growing area of fiber Bragg grating sensing. Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:
- Grating structures, photosensitivity, glass relaxation and poling in optical fiber and waveguides from fundamentals, physical properties and fabrication approaches to applications
- FBGs in specialty optical fibers
- Advanced FBG-based mechanical and physical sensors
- Advanced FBG-based biomedical, chemical and environmental sensors
- Performance of FBG systems in real environments
- Effects of harsh environments (temperature, pressure, etc.) on the performance of FBG systems
- Specialized applications of FBGs in oil and gas industry, electric power system, aerospace missions, transport, civil structure and other areas
- Integration and packaging of FBGs
- Miniaturization efforts to make entire FBG systems suitable for on-board, in-flight, and other applications with space and weight limitations
- Standardization efforts of FBG sensors for different industries and applications
We hope that the collected contributions of this Special Issue will foster synergistic comparisons that will ultimately enhance overall optical fiber sensor developments, which continue to progress rapidly.

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 2000 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.
