Special Issue "Optomechanical Sensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2019).
Interests: optomechanics; plasmonics; photonic crystals; nanomechanical sensing
Although light–matter interactions have been studied for the last fifty years, optomechanics (the interplay of optical and mechanical modes of micro-nano structures) has gained considerable interest over the last decade. This emerging field promises a wide range of applications, not only in fundamental science, e.g., in quantum fields and fluid dynamics, but also in biological research, medical diagnosis, and environmental monitoring.
This Special Issue aims to gather the community and highlight the relevance of optomechanics in the sensing field. We invite manuscripts for this forthcoming Special Issue on all aspects pertinent to optomechanical sensing, such as development, testing, and modeling of any kind of optomechanical sensors, advances in fabrication, etc.
We look forward to and welcome your participation in this Special Issue. Both experimental and theoretical contributions are welcome. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Biosensing and environmental analysis
- Force Sensing
- Quantum applications
- Optofluidics and Fluid dynamics
- Fabrication of novel optomechanical platforms
- New optomechanical sensing schemes

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 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.
