Special Issue "Optical Fiber Sensors 2016"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2016).
This special issue of the journal Sensors entitled:”Optical fiber sensors” will focus on all aspects of research and development related to this field. The scope covers all topics associated with sensing supported by guided optics platforms with emphasis on optical fibers, addressing subjects such as sensing transducers, sensing systems and applications in industrial, life sciences, medical, oil and gas, civil engineering, materials and defense, among others. Manuscripts are also welcome in domains such as self-diagnosis and recalibration, sensor integration and data fusion, network architectures, packaging, system robustness and long-term reliability.
Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
- Physical, mechanical, and electromagnetic sensors
- Chemical, environmental, biological and medical sensors and bio photonics
- Interferometric and polarimetric sensors including gyroscopes
- Micro- and nano-structured fiber sensors including the photonic crystal fibers and gratings sensors
- Multiplexing and sensor networking
- Distributed sensing
- Smart structures and sensors including the SHM systems
- Sensor application, field tests and standardization
- New fibers, devices and subsystems for photonic sensing including the ones for security and defense
- New concepts for photonic sensing

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.
