Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Optical fiber sensors and photonic devices have been applied in various photonic applications, due to their capability for high-speed, remote, multiple, and distributed sensing, which expands the possibilities of sensing capabilities. Optical fiber sensors have been integrated with photonic materials using semiconductor and organic materials. For example, the use of sensing materials both on and in optical fibers is well-established for optical, chemical, and biochemical sensors. The porous and slot structure of optical fibers has the advantage of being accepting various kinds of materials, which improves the sensing capabilities.
This Special Issue aims to present novel and innovative application of sensors and devices based on optical fiber sensors and photonic devices and, overall, address the wide range of applications of optical sensors. Both review articles and original research papers related to the application of optical fiber sensors and photonic devices are solicited.

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.
