Activatable probes and sensors that amplify or boost signals in response to the target of interest have a critical role in biosensing, imaging, and photomedicine. This Special Issue focuses on activatable sensing technologies through the use of fluorescence imaging, chemiluminescence imaging, afterglow imaging, photoacoustic imaging, optical coherence tomography, super-resolution optical imaging, near infrared imaging, nonlinear optical imaging, photomechanical actuation, photothermal actuation, and photo thermomechanical actuation, etc. The activatable probes and sensors can be developed and used in such strategies and technologies but are not limited to the methods mentioned above. Contributions may also include different aspects in terms of design, development, and validation of biosensors.
The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight the advanced processes on the development of various activatable probes or sensors as diagnostic and therapeutic platforms for biomedical applications. Review articles and research articles related to the above activatable biosensing technologies are welcome.

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.
