Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
We have only one Earth, and to keep it at healthy condition, continuous monitoring is required. Optical Technologies for Environmental Monitoring is a field that could contribute a lot to protecting our Earth. The aim of this Special Issue is to present different optical technologies to monitor our soil, water, and air in a diverse range of architectures, sensing mechanisms, and applications. We invite manuscripts for this forthcoming Special Issue entitled “Optical Technologies for Environmental Monitoring”, in all aspects pertinent to environmental sensors. Both reviews and original research articles are welcome. Reviews should provide an up-to-date and critical overview of state-of-the-art technologies in the following research fields applied to Optical Technologies for Environmental Monitoring:
- Aerosols monitoring to detect COVID-19 virus;
- Optical fiber sensors for COVID-19 screening;
- Physical, mechanical, and electromagnetic sensors;
- Micro plastic sensing (e.g., Raman, FTIR);
- Industrial pollution monitoring;
- Soil monitoring;
- Water monitoring;
- Lidar, Ladar remote sensing;
- Satellite remote sensing;
- Multiplexing and sensor networking;
- Distributed sensing;
- Agriculture pollution monitoring;
- Interferometric and polarimetric sensors;
- Sensor based on backscattering, absorption, fluorescence, Raman;
- New concepts for photonic sensing.

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.
