Special Issue "Fiber Optic Sensing Technology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2020).
Interests: fiber Bragg sensor; multipoint measurement; distributed sensing; biomedical application; car monitoring; railway monitoring; structural health monitoring
Fiber-optic sensing technologies offer a high potential for utilization due to their properties compared to conventional sensor types. This Special Issue will explore new designs and improved sensing approach architectures to achieve higher measurement accuracy and resolution, and increase the functionality of sensors for measuring multiple quantities at once. This Special Issue will focus on the following fiber optic sensing technologies:
- Fiber-optic and polymer Bragg gratings
- Distributed systems based on Rayleigh, Raman, and Brillouin scattering
- Fiber-optic interferometric and polarimetric systems
- Intensity sensors
- Micro- and nano-structured fiber sensors
- Fiber specklegram sensors
- New concepts for photonic sensing
Another goal is to extend the usability of these technologies and improve their principles for sensing applications in the following areas:
- Biomedical applications
- Structural health monitoring
- Automobile, train, and air transport
- Measurement of electrical and magnetic quantities
- Very high-temperature measurement
- Measurement in the chemical industry
- Perimetric applications
- Use of smart materials for fiber-optic sensors

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 2200 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.
