Special Issue "Fiber Optic Sensors for Biomedical Applications"
A special issue of Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2019).
Prof. Emiliano Schena
Sensors based on fiber optic technology have gained increasing attention and, in many cases, broad clinical acceptance for several biomedical applications. Fiber optic sensors (FOSs) may be designed to fulfill some valuable characteristics, such as small size, the possibility to achieve distributed measurements, immunity from electromagnetic interferences, and good metrological properties. These characteristics and recent exciting developments make FOSs an emerging solution for several biomedical applications.
This Special Issue aims to collect articles by industrial and academic players, which are leading authorities in the field. Particular attention will be focused on the current state-of-the-art of FOSs in biomedical applications, as well as on significant recent advances in the design, fabrication, and characterization of novel FOSs.

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.
