Topical Collection Information
Optical sensing plays a vital role in the broad family of the biomedical applications offering important advantages over conventional analytical techniques because they enable the direct, real-time and label-free detection of many biological and chemical substances. Optical biosensors has witnessed rapid progress in diverse aspects, ranging, for example, from the sensor design to applications, from in vitro to in vivo measurements, from bulky optical solid-state devices to the development of novel nanomaterials.
Aiming to bring researchers together to display their excellent works, this collection on photonic biosensing offers a platform for providing an overview of the recent developments and strategies related to novel principles, structures or materials as well as the combinations of experimental and analytical/numerical approaches for optical biosensors. Both research articles and reviews are welcome.
Our Special Issue on optical biosensing aims to cover topics including but not limited to:: the manipulation of optical transducers or the rational design of optical molecular probes, the development of new sensing materials, including a range of optical sensory device types, such as intensity based, interferometric, spectroscopic, fluorescence, colorimetric, FRET, BRET, SPR, SEIRA, SERS devices, etc., and novel applications of photonic sensors in biomedicine.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the collection 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 2400 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.
