Distributed optical fiber sensors (DOFSs) have attracted increasing attention from academia and industry in the past several decades. The growing demands in fields such as gas and oil, structural health monitoring, and geophysical science have accelerated the research and development of DOFSs with high sensing performance. However, DOFSs still encounter challenges in both upstream research and downstream applications. For example, innovative ideas are needed to achieve performance enhancements including high measurement accuracy, high spatial resolution, long sensing length and large dynamic sensing range. The widespread implementation of the DOFSs in industry applications is often hindered by costly interrogation systems. We hope to collect innovative ideas and schemes of DOFSs to address the challenges and to provide new opportunities.
This Special Issue will focus on the latest developments of DOFS systems and their applications, including advanced signal processing, innovative DOFS techniques and solutions.
Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Principles and schemes of innovative distributed optical fiber sensing techniques;
- Novel distributed fiber sensing systems;
- AI-assisted distributed optical fiber sensing and signal processing;
- Applications of distributed optical fiber sensors in hash environments;
- Field trial results of advanced DOFSs for practical applications.

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. Sensors 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.
