Special Issue "Snapshot Multi-Band Spectral and Polarization Imaging Systems"
A special issue of Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2018)
Methods and technologies for snapshot, multi-band, spectral and polarization imaging have been researched for several decades, and, in recent years, systems have also been made commercially available.
By “snapshot, multi-band, spectral and polarization imaging”, we think mostly about optical image sensors embedded in a camera-type device, which provide an instantaneous capture of the scene under diverse modalities. We consider specifically multispectral, hyperspectral, polarization within the technology that provide snapshot capacity (spectral filter array, light field/plenoptic cameras, multi-camera setups, etc.). With the beginning of the commercialization of these products, there is a growing interest from end-users of these technologies to understand the nature of the information acquired, the limitations of the technology, and what future directions should be given to research. At the same time, for hardware manufacturers, as well as providers of processing and analysis systems, there is a need for standardization of acquisition and discussions on the quality aspects of such systems. In addition, a great deal of research has been carried out in the optical community to develop new modalities and technologies for optical filters in transmittance (i.e., plasmonic filters). Additionally, new application areas have appeared for such systems.
It seems that the time has come to focus a Special Issue on these topics, so that concerned persons can be aware of the different issues, achievements, and progress from different disciplines on one single issue.

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 1800 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.
