The field of optical biosensors continues to grow rapidly with advancements in engineering, material science, computer science, chemistry, physics, biology, and medicine. The applications are broad and diverse; uses range from ones concerning fundamental biological research to diagnostics in resource-limited settings, from environmental monitoring to uses in defense and security, and from agricultural uses to applications in personalized medicine.
This Special Issue aims to bring together recent advancements concerning the research and development of optical biosensors in a wide variety of disciplines. We aim to publish a special issue that will be of interest to a broad group of readers from academia, industry, and government.
We seek papers that address a wide range of novel, optical biosensing techniques, as well as the emerging applications of such techniques. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, novel materials and techniques for optical biosensing, point-of-care and lab-on-a-chip devices, surface functionalization methodologies, single-molecule detection, intracellular sensing, and applications in genomics, proteomics, medical diagnostics, drug delivery, health care, food analysis, environmental monitoring, defense, and security. We invite authors to submit original research papers relating to optical biosensors.

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.
