Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the last few decades, optical sensor technology has gained considerable attention for eye-catching applications in several areas, especially the measurement of physical properties such as temperature, pressure, strain, and displacement. This technology has also been widely used in point-of-care diagnostics. Researchers all over the world have proposed and demonstrated different sensing techniques for the detection of deadly diseases. The main purpose of intensive research on optical sensor technology development is to find a way which can produce miniaturized, reliable, cost-effective, and easily producible devices. In this Special Issue, we are focusing on the optical sensor technology development offered by Russian scientists and foreign scientists working in Russia. Original papers and review articles concerning the experimental, theoretical, and numerical analysis addressing novel ideas are most 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 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.
