The aim of this Special Issue is to create a short collection of papers on the specific topic of optical and electrical nanostructured sensors. Thanks to the possibility of nanostructuring materials, we can make sensors and devices compact, with reduced dimensionality and above all with new functionalities. Nanostructuring enhances the characteristics of sensors, such as sensitivity, resolution, response speed, and much more. The progress of micro and nanotechnologies has permitted the realization of entirely new platforms such as Lab-on-Chip and Lab-on-Fiber, which represent miniaturized laboratories on planar substrates or even on optical fibers, which can be employed in real scenarios. These innovative sensors have outclassed traditional sensors in almost all fields of application. In this Special Issue, we would like to focus on biomedical, food, and environmental detection and monitoring. This Special Issue addresses and focuses on the recent advances of these sensors in terms of their design and fabrication strategies but also the performance achieved in real scenarios. We are glad to receive theoretical and experimental works in the form of original articles or review papers. The non-exhaustive list of potential topics includes:
- Optical and electrical sensors;
- Fabrication methods for realizing sensing devices;
- Theoretical approaches for innovative sensors;
- Advanced functional systems for biochemical, food, and environmental sensing applications.
We look forward to your contribution to this Special Issue.

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.
