Special Issue Information
Photonics sensors have attracted wide interest in countless domains, including aerospace, food processing, high-energy physics experiments, environmental monitoring, medicine, the nuclear industry, oil and gas, railways, and structural health monitoring. Here, photonics sensors bring several advantages, such as high-sensitivity and -resolution measurements, small size and weight, immunity to electromagnetic interferences, resistance to harsh environments, long-distance monitoring, and high multiplexing capability.
This Special Issue will focus on the latest developments and trends in photonics sensors, covering recent improvements in related theory, design, fabrication, and application/validation. We encourage you to submit original research papers, communications, and review articles in order to provide a useful insight into the present status and future outlooks in this area. We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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. Photonics 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 1800 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.

Title: An FBG-Based Hard Landing Monitoring System: a preliminary assessment for drops on different grounds
Authors: A. Brindisi; C. Vendittozzi; L. Travascio; M. Belardo; M. Ignarra; V. Fiorillo; A. Concilio
Affiliation: CIRA and the University of Brasilia
Abstract: The activity deals with an integrated system with an FBG-sensor network, capable of recording the structural response of a Landing Gear under operational loads. The focus of the paper concerns the measurements of dynamic strains following hard landing (HL) conditions, even considered for weight on wheel (WoW) detection. Experiments were carried out by dropping a leaf spring LG from a lab tower and impacting different soil types: hard, sand and gravel.

Abstract: The effect of the glue type on static and dynamic strain transfers of bonded optical fibre sensors is studied. Different types of adhesives are tested on acrylate-coated, high temperature acrylate-coated, polyimide-coated and uncoated Fluor doped optical fibres. Static strain measurements are made using both Fibre Bragg Gratings (FBGs) and Optical Frequency Domain Reflectometry (OFDR), and are compared to reference strain-gauge measurements and to a numerical model. Regarding the dynamic strain measurements only the FBGs are tested. The preliminary results show that strain sensors based on bonded fibres can be as sensitive as strain-gauges.
