Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 June 2018).
Interests: optical sensors; optical fiber sensors; optical transmission systems; medical applications of photonics; fiber lasers; sensor signal processing
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Fiber and waveguide based optical sensors have gained a high amount of interest since they show enormous potential for applications in various fields. Especially, for harsh environments, such as in electrical power generation and conversion facilities, optical sensors show improved performance due to their immunity to electromagnetic fields. Distributed fiber sensors offer new perspectives in the monitoring of pipelines, cables, or in security-sensitive areas. Furthermore, we observe the increasing importance of optical biosensors, e.g., in medical lab-on-chip applications. This list could be extended to more examples demonstrating innovative application of sensors that are based on optical waveguides.
In this Special Issue on optical waveguide based sensors, we like to compile original contributions from this field. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- fiber sensors
- planar waveguide based sensors
- polymer optical fiber/waveguide sensors
- single mode, few mode and multimode sensors
- optical waveguides for sensing applications
- specialty fibers for sensing application
- photonic crystal fiber sensors
- interferometric waveguide sensors
- sensor structure inscription techniques
- fiber Bragg gratings (FBG)
- sensors for biomedical application
- optical lab-on-chip/lab-on-fiber sensors
- photonic integrated circuit sensors
- optical fiber sensor multiplexing techniques
- distributed fiber sensors
- sensor networks
- cross sensitivity suppression
- sensor signal processing for optical waveguide based sensors

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.
