Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The area of Opto-Microfluidics involves microsystems formed by integrating microfluidics and microphotonics or micro optical or nano photonics elements for various applications. Some of the bio applications would include biosensing, bio diagnosis, cell sorting, cell counting, prognosis, etc. This special issue will address challenges involved with integration and application specific issues when micro photonics/micro optics/nano photonics elements are integrated.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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 monthly journal published by MDPI.
