Special Issue "Resonator Sensors 2018"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 December 2018)
The field of sensors based on optical resonators comprises different optical cavities and resonators, ranging from, but not limited to: Whispering gallery mode resonators, photonic crystals, and grating waveguide resonators. The field has gained an increasing interest over the last few decades and it has an extremely broad range of applications as physical (temperature, pressure, displacement and field) sensors and chemical (biological, medical, agriculture and environment) sensors.
We invite manuscripts for this forthcoming Special Issue on all aspects pertinent to optical resonator 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 such as whispering gallery modes, photonic crystals, grating waveguide resonators or any other optical resonator-based sensing mechanism. Original research papers that describe the utilization of optical resonating platforms in sensing, or new concepts and fundamental studies with potential relevance to sensing are also of interest. If you have suggestions that you would like to discuss beforehand, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to and welcome your participation in this Special Issue.Dr. Silvia Soria Huguet
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.
