Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Fiber Bragg gratings (FBG) have represented the most-applied fiber-optic sensor technologies for many decades. Their technological maturity, versatility, and reliability have been fundamental for their widespread use in many different engineering applications, including in mechanical, geotechnical, and biomedical fields, to mention a few.
This Special Issue broadly focuses on the engineering applications of FBG sensing technologies. Both regular and review papers will be considered, and the topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • FBG-based mechanical and physical sensors;
  • FBG-based biomedical, chemical, and environmental sensors;
  • FBG sensing systems in field applications;
  • Applications of FBG technologies in engineering fields, such as structural health monitoring, shape sensing, smart industry, smart surgery, automation, composite materials, and acoustics.

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. 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.
