Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biophotonics is the science of how light interacts with biological objects such as tissues, cells, and organisms. Recently, new materials have played an important role in creating new, exciting areas of biophotonics. It can be noted that progress in materials science has a strong influence on the ever-increasing progress in biophotonics. Thanks to the use of new materials, new biosensors are being created, including implantable ones, optical imaging systems and measuring devices for testing diseases. Another group of materials used in biophotonics research is materials for fabricating tissue phantoms. This area of knowledge and technology continues to develop, and providing us with increasingly perfect tissue phantoms, which have similar parameters to real objects.

In addition, advances in the study of optical and structural properties of biological tissues and cells allow for the creation of new materials, with applications not only in biology and medicine, but also in other areas. Thanks to these innovative materials, new devices and biophotonics technologies are emerging.

Clearly, the relationship between biophotonics and materials is strong and organic, and we can observe that both biophotonics and material sciences mutually enrich each other. This leads to the creation of new solutions, leading to a better understanding of nature and a higher quality of life.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
