Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Optical and Photonic Sensors research field is experiencing significant development primarily in biosensors, nanosensors, integrated photonics and optical lab on a chip sensing systems, relying on the state-of-the-art photonic guided lightwave technology, including optical spectroscopy methods in instrumentation and measurement. This advanced sensor technology offers major multi functionalities, such as exceptional simultaneous sensitivity and selectivity, operating in remote environments, compactness and low cost.

The aim of this Special Issue is to explore the progress in research findings and engineering technologies related to Optical and photonic sensors for far-reaching applications in biosensing, environmental, pharmaceutical, medical (using optical spectroscopy), chemical and nano-optic sensors consisting of biologically or biophysically-derived sensing elements.

Contributions include also different aspects in terms of sensor design, manufacturing, testing and validation. In other words, the aim of this special issue is to provide a clear picture of our recent understanding of optics/photonics involved in sensor design and development.

Review articles and regular original research article related to the above sensors contributions are welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 2000 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.
