Optical fiber sensors have been used for a considerable period of time, yet they are still an exciting and dynamic research field with a wide range of new and emerging applications. The aim of this Special Issue is to reflect on the latest improvements in optical fiber sensor technologies, encompassing the diverse range of architectures, sensing mechanisms and applications.
We invite manuscripts for this forthcoming Special Issue entitled “Optical Fiber Sensors 2017”, in all aspects pertinent to fiber sensors. Both reviews and original research articles are welcome. Reviews should provide an up-to-date and critical overview of state-of-the-art technologies in the following research fields applied to fiber sensors:
- 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 photonic crystal fibers and gratings sensors
- Multiplexing and sensor networking
- Distributed sensing
- Smart structures and sensors including Bragg gratings, Fabry Perot cavities, plasmonic and Mach Zehnder interferometer.
- New concepts for photonic sensing
If you have any suggestions that you would like to discuss beforehand, please feel free to contact us. We look
forward to and welcome your participation in this special 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.
