Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recent advances in optoelectronic materials, components, and systems have opened up new opportunities for sensing and imaging in biomedical applications. This Special Issue of Sensors, entitled ‘Advanced Optoelectronic Biomedical Sensing Technology’, will focus on all aspects of research and development related to this area of applications.

Original research papers that focus on the design, modeling, and experimental testing of new sensors and imaging systems that use optical radiation for biomedical sensing are welcome, as are papers that cover testing of such sensors and systems in their target applications.

Review papers on selected fields in optoelectronic biomedical sensing will also be published. They should provide an up-to-date, impartial/unbiased overview of the current state-of-the-art in a particular area while including key results from relevant research groups.

We look forward to and welcome your participation to 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 2200 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.

In this paper, the application of a microsphere-based fiber-optic sensor with a 200 nm zinc oxide (ZnO) coating, deposited by the Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) method, for temperature measurements between 100 and 300 °C, is presented. The main advantage of integrating a fiber-optic microsphere with a sensing device is the possibility of monitoring the integrity of the sensor head in real-time, which allows for higher accuracy during measurements. The study has demonstrated that ZnO ALD-coated microsphere-based sensors can be successfully used for temperature measurements. The sensitivity of the tested device was found to be 103.5 nW/°C when the sensor was coupled with a light source of 1300 nm central wavelength. The measured coefficient R2 of the sensor head was over 0.99, indicating a good fit of the theoretical linear model to the measured experimental data. Full article
