Optical resonators or optical cavities represent a kind of tuning-fork for the world of optics, laser science, and photonics. In fact, following the introduction of the Fabrys–Perot interferometer 120 years ago, they became the basis for numerous devices, most importantly lasers. Today, there are numerous known variants of devices with the closed-loop trace of optical rays, which are characterized by the existence of their eigenmodes and eigenfrequencies. These are linear and ring cavities, 3D, planar, and waveguide resonators, passive (empty) and active (laser) cavities, etc., with the resonators of the whispering gallery modes, the microspherical resonators, and other advanced schemes later added to this list. Since their eigenfrequencies of all optical cavities are extremely sensitive to any variations of the optical length of the resonator or changes in its shape, they provide a very sensitive tool for various kinds of sensors and sensing devices—from microbiology and nanophotonics to optical gyros. In this Special Issue on optical resonator sensors, we anticipate papers on all possible existing and future sensors and sensing technologies, employing optical cavities of any kind.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2400 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.
