As an emerging interdisciplinary topic, optofluidics combines the unique properties of photonic energy and microfluidic systems for addressing a range of problems in the micro-/nano-scale relevant to the fields of biology, chemistry, and physical sciences. Examples of optofluidics include particle manipulation through trapping or localized heating, optically actuated microfluidics, controllable microfluidic lenses, micro-reactors, etc. Especially, it has contributed a lot to the application of surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensors. This Special Issue aims to publish state-of-the-art original articles and comprehensive reviews covering novel optofluidic manipulation techniques and SPR biosensors. Contributions may include different aspects in terms of novel design, fabrication, chemistry, analysis, applications perspectives, and so on.
The topics that will be covered include (but are not limited to):
- Novel optical tweezers;
- Novel optofluidic manipulation techniques;
- Optothermal-assisted manipulation techniques;
- Trapping and sensing schemes;
- Surface plasmon resonance sensors;
- Fiber-based surface plasmon resonance sensors;
- Single-molecule detection techniques;
- Novel optical imaging and sensing systems;
- Novel lab-on-a-chip devices;
- Novel optofludic nano-robots.

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.
