In recent decades, fast-growing semiconductor and nanofabrication technologies combined with machine-learning algorithms have significantly advanced the field of optical sensing and imaging.
Bulky and expensive laser systems evolved into compact and inexpensive systems with less power consumption. Sophisticated but robust turn-key CW and pulsed-laser systems are the key components of portable clinical instruments and successful translation. Highly efficient electric detectors/cameras are widely used. Specifically, compact camera modules with decent performance are available at low cost due to the smartphone industry. Advanced nanotechnology brought new tools to the field. High-performance optical filters are used to exclude unwanted photons in many optical systems. Nanoparticles are designed for molecular imaging and nanostructures are used to target specific molecules. Optical fiber technology enabled measuring in vivo signals from tissue locations that are not easily accessible by traditional imaging systems. More recently, machine-learning algorithms were actively introduced to the optics field, allowing the extraction of maximum information from existing or new data. Furthermore, these algorithms help in developing low-cost devices as they ease hardware requirements.
This Special Issue is focused on the recent advances in optical biosensing and bioimaging as well as advanced algorithms. You are invited to submit your original articles or reviews.

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 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. Biosensors is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2700 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.
