This special issue of the journal Sensors entitled “Photonic Sensors for Industrial, Environmental and Health Monitoring” will focus on all aspects of research and development related to these areas. Papers which focus on the design and experimental verification of these sensors as well as papers which focus on the results of sensor field testing in these areas are welcome. It is the goal of this special issue to provide a broad platform for publishing the many rapid advances which are currently being achieved in the area of photonic sensor technology. It is envisioned that by providing this special issue and allowing sufficient breadth in the submissions accepted, similarities across market segment may be realized by researchers in these different application areas, and as such, will provide synergistic comparisons which may enhance the overall photonic sensor efforts which are rapidly advancing throughout the world at the present time.
