Special Issue "Nanophotonic Approaches to Biosensing and Bioimaging Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 29 February 2024 | Viewed by 4156
Interests: nanophotonics; optical sensors; biomedical optical imaging
Nanophotonics offers unprecedented potential in designing and engineering novel optical devices for biosensing and bioimaging with its extraordinary capability of controlling electromagnetic waves with sub-wavelength scale photonic structures. It enables enhanced capabilities and new functionalities for sensing chemical and physical variations with extraordinary sensing performance beyond the current limit, distinguishing multiple elements with the signal previously hidden, achieving the measurements with exceptional scale and speed, as well as offering novel bioimaging mechanisms with enriched contrasts and improved resolution. Advanced micro/nano manufacturing technologies further offer more options for materials, extended functionality, and reduced per-unit costs to achieve customized nanophotonic devices for abundant convenient applications in numerous vital areas, including healthcare, pharmaceutics, food safety, environmental monitoring, security, etc. We welcome all types of submissions, including original research papers, reviews, perspectives, methods, or technical reports, that will help enrich the field for the existing community as well as for newcomers.

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.
