Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Optical sensors are widely used in various research and commercial applications today. These sensors are utilized for quality and process control, medical technologies, metrology, imaging, and remote sensing and laser, imaging systems, and or/fibers. This Special Issue of Sensors will focus on the recent developments of optical sensors based on diffraction structures. However, the issue is open for new proposals of novel sensing principals. Review articles and original research papers based on theoretical, numerical, and experimental work addressing new and innovative applications are welcome.

I look forward to receiving your proposals.
