Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Within the field of biosensors, in the last two decades, fiber optic-based biosensing systems have attracted remarkable and growing interest. The well-known advantages offered by fiber optics, such as immunity from electromagnetic fields, intrinsic safety, low invasivity, and excellent optical signal delivery, coupled with the well-established knowledge in the field of biosensing science, could lead to very high-performance biosensing systems.

This Special Issue will focus on the recent developments in the field of fiber optic biosensors. Research articles and reviews focused on the development and innovations in all components and aspects of a fiber optic biosensors are welcome, including, but not restricted to, novel transduction principles, bioreceptors design and optimization for optimal coupling with the fibre optic transducer, innovative fibre optic design, high performance detection schemes, and applications in various analytical fields.

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.
